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.

Amber color with little head. Maybe the barkeep didn't know how to pour this beer. Aroma of biscuit and cascade. Taste was fairly smooth with a hoppy finish. The benchmark pale? I'll have to have a few others to decide. Isn't beer drinking wonderful!!

Great easy drinking, everyday beer. Good medium hop smell, caramel color, even body taste, lingering palate. Overall a classic.

ianwelby (1090) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Clear golden beer, smells of fruit and bready spices. There’s a spiciness to the taste as well, along with some grassy, zesty fruit, bitter hop and a floral feel to it. There’s a bit of a caramel base to it as well giving it a slightly richer feel than many pale ales. Really very tasty.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2016
- bernstein, mit guter, anhaltenderr Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Pfirsich, Mango und Grapefruit - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist überraschend würzig mit einer leichten Harznote - im Mittelteil kommt noch ein leichter Malzkörper hinzu - erst im Abgang legt die Bitterkeit noch einen Zahn zu, aber leider auch verbunden mit einer leichten Wässrigkeit Fazit: Gut ausbalanciertes Pale Ale

Pours deep amber with medium head. Medium bodied and medium carbonated. Aroma of American hops (some citrus, some resin), medium bitternes with fruit flavor. Highly drinkable and without any flaws.

This is a well balanced beer from the bottle. Nice amount of hops and great body. 5.6% alcohol and minimum fruit taste. This is a nice regular drinking ale. An interesting bottle. Recommended.

Sircatis (105) - FRANCE - SEP 8, 2016
Bière découverte au Mondiale de la Bière à Mulhouse il y a quelques années. Première initiation à la dégustation d’une Pale Ale. Bière doucement fruitée et houblonnée avec légère une amertume de Pils allemandes. Bonne bière

355 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Cloudy golden with a medium white head. Moderate hoppy aroma of citrus and pineapple; moderate maltiness of bread, caramel and resin. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium body, with a semi-slick texture. Average carbonation. Medium bitterness.
