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.

One of my favorite pale ales, and I’m an avid pale ale drinker and Sierra still stacks up as one of the best. I still get a shock lke jumping in cold water from my first gulp, while it smoothes out almost magically in your mouth. The aftertaste is the best, a taste that I can’t quite describe, maybe like if I ate rose petals that were sweet. Awesome with pizza.

355ml bottle from Asda. Pours pale amber with plenty of carbonation, small white head. Aroma is floral, hops, citrus. Taste is a little sweet, medium bitter, floral flavors and hops with a dry finish.

APARIENCIA: de color ámbar con destellos naranjas a contraluz, se observa turbia; corona de espuma color blanco de mediana retención, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: el lúpulo destaca, de características florales, además de un ligero dulzor de maltas. SABOR: de entrada un amargor moderado ligero, seguido de las notas de los lúpulos usados, algo floral y notas frutales, por ahí piña y durazno, además de dulzor de maltas, todo bien redondo; en el retrogusto queda un amargor moderado bajo, seco y no astringente. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, ligera sensación oleosa, mediana carbonatación. RESUMEN: una buena cerveza de acuerdo al estilo.

Une très beau Pale ale à la robe dorée, au nez finement épicé et houblonné et à la bouche digeste qui se fond à merveille sur le burger.

coolfunnj (344) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2016
aroma is at first floral hops and yeast,earthy yeast and malt presence as well..nice slightly cloudy amber red appearance with pure white foamy head lacing too no prob with the appearance..taste..like a much stronger IPA but more top heavy than most in a word a well worn and time proven classic would love to taste a ’double or "imperial" version

klaing (225) - Florida, USA - APR 27, 2016
Pale Amber with frothy persistent head. Moderate carbonation. Sweet caramel in the malts, grapefruit in the hops. Been drinking off and on for 20 years. See no reason to stop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Japalo (1685) - DENMARK - APR 27, 2016
Bottle@home. One finger foam. Amber very clear. Pasteurized faint hoppy notes. No citrus grapefruit. Some undefined fruityness. DME suspected. Low bitterness. Skunk from the shelves of the grocery. The exp date 07022017. The beer must be rather fresh. A great disappointment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LeoN_ (3) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 27, 2016 does not count
Wow! Absolut rundes Gesamtkunstwerk. Im Antrunk beim ersten Schluck ggf. noch recht "lau", kommt die Fülle des Körpers mit seiner Ausgewogenheit schnell zu Geltung. Der Abgang ist leicht bitter, was aber durch die Einbettung in den fruchtigen Körper absolut in Harmonie ist.

Maersk (85) - MOLDOVA - APR 26, 2016
Amber color. Small creamy head. Lots of carb and a bit hazy. Fruity citrusy aroma. Unexpectedly sweet and malty body with strong bitterness hovering it. Tastes empty though. Drinkable but not bursting with flavor at all
