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.

A decent pale ale, but not my favorite. The Bridgeport Blue Heron is a lot smoother, and has more body, where the Sierra Nevada seems a little thinner. but satisfying, and strong enough to rank well in the Pale Ale family. It does have a nice hoppy bite, but the aftertaste bears a lot of bitterness that I’m not sure if I like. It does get better with each beer, (but I think that formula works for every beer!)

Pours amber with white frothy head. Aroma of citrus, hops and malts. Taste is bitter and hoppy with a light sweetness to it. One of my go to pale ales.

SB Oskarshamn, flaska. Arom som görväntat annanas och tallbarr. Smaken välbalanserad men kunde vara en Oppigårds. Inte deras fel. Mer tänd på helles.

0,33 Flasche aus dem E-Center Stengel. Mandarinenfarbend mit Ablagerungen im Getränk, wunderschöne Schaumkrone die auch bestehen bleibt, mittelmäßig Kohlensäure. Riecht nach Zitrusfrüchten, leicht nach Gewürzen. Geschmacklich Blutorange, Grapefruit, dann hopfig, leicht bitter, Gewürze, leicht nach Pfeffer, Karamell? Gutes Ding

wheresthepath (1787) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle at a street market in Shoreditch. Pale amber with a thin white head and a light fizz. Pine and grapefruit pith throughout but it’s well balanced and the bitterness isn’t overdone. The flavours and aroma are maybe slightly muted compared to today’s best examples of the style, and it’s maybe a tad thin, but it’s crisp and refreshing and pleasant to drink.
