Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a delightful example of the classic pale ale style. It has a deep amber color and a exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. The fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor are the results of the generous use of the best Cascade hops.<P> Bottle Conditioned.

There really is a reason that this beer is in every bar. It’s classic. Nice hope with the malt calming down the hops just a little.. smooth and medium through out.. always a good choice. When you find yourself at a bar with a small beer collection.

fajry (363) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 8, 2014
Fľaša. Farba tmavo zlatá, jantárová, biela pena, ktorá držala veľmi dlho. Vôňa sladová, trávnatá, kvetinová, kde pekne cítiť chmeľ. V chuti sladová sladkosť, prechádza cez kvetinové tóny, zľahka citrusové tóny to príjemnej jemne chmeľovosti. Telo stredné, veľmi príjemná nasýtenosť. Nie je to žiadny extra ale, ale tým, že je ľahký a krásne vyvážený, tak je prudko piteľný.

A delicious pale ale that can be drank any day of the week. A nice smell of pine and slight citrus in the nose. The taste is much the same with a refreshing pine flavor. Delicious. I know there is a better Pale Ale out there, I just haven’t found it yet.

Saeglopur (251) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Beautiful deep amber, clear body, with a big, creamy, slightly yellow head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, some pine and interesting earthy, grainy notes. Taste is really smooth, with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, pine and grain notes. Simply tasty! Very very smooth, greatly balanced and a classic example of a Cascade hopped ale.

Jamesthebrit (231) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Sort of soapy earthy note with a hint of lemon lime citrus. Looks good. Good head. Solid amber color. Taste is smooth. Hint of hops. Little malt. A solid blend of flavors without going toward one too much. Solid for a pale ale. Palate is lighter but still full on the palate. A really solid pale ale. I could drink a lot of this.

Bičre achetée ŕ Santa Monica. Ambrée, et surhaussée d’une belle mousse, elle présente un nez malté et quand męme houblonné. En bouche, c’est fort goűteux et malté aussi. Les houblons apportent des notes d’agrumes et de caramel. Une pale ale qui se rapproche d’une IPA et qui est excellente. Cheers!

Bottled. I had this at the Hars Rock Cafe at the Universal Studios in L.A. The faux pas came right away - it came with no glass! I did not bother to order one because we had been drinking for some tome already over at Karl Strauss :D. It was a good american style pale ale as far as I can remember.

Clear, golden, white foam, good carbonation. Citrus flavour. Not the greatest pale ale for the price in Aus. But pretty decent nevertheless.
