2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma is citrus-y, hoppy. I found the taste a bit thin, particularly bitter with a lacking finish. Body was also on the thin side. I’ve had this several times and it continues to be a lackluster brew. Of course, it’s better when you’re at a bar and this is the only decent thing in sight.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Järve Selver. Pours nice, slightly hazy golden with a little head. Aroma has a bit of fruitiness, floral hops. I guess it has gone a bit stale compared with what it should be closer to bottling date - but it’s still good. Taste has abundance of bitter hops, strong malt backbone balanced with heavy hops. Not much of carbonation left. Doesn’t have much fragrance though, quite down the earth drink. Has some lingering bitterness at the end. Good beer, not too pretentious and a great example of the style. Will try it again, especially when I get it closer to the brewery, not the half a world away as I am trying it right now.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a regular favorite. Nice aromatics rising from an amber pour with a thick head topping. Taste is well-balanced with a few floral notes to delight the tongue. Finish is clean and only mildly bitter. SN Pale is a nice brew to have around for any occasion or a find meal.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle from BWS. Pour is deep amber with an ample short lasting white head and decent lace. Aromas are hoppy (tropical fruits with pineapple to the fore, citrus) with caramel malts and honey in there as well. Palate is delicious and refreshing with good balance of sweet malts and sturdy fruity hop bitterness at the back. Medium bodied and easy to drink for a few more.
Justifiably considered an American classic.

Large bottle from local market. Slightly cloudy dark golden color with a long lasting white head. Nice aromas of citrus fruits and yellow flowers. Flavors are similar to aromas and are well presented in nice structure. Sweet malty finish with a long after taste which is very pleasant.
