3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Bier Markt. A dark amber, almost orange body, with medium sized white head.
Fruity hops on the nose.
Fairly crisp on the tongue. Tastes are sweet citrus hops, with an enjoyable pine finish. I could session this beer no problem.

pours clear golden, aroma has a slight balance with pine. Taste is nicely balanced hops, with pine but also a malt base.

Having at The Draft in Oceanside after a Shock Top. Oh what a relief it is. Great hoppy aroma great malt with slight slight bagel toasty. Real slight really adds to malt chapter. Great hop clean finish.

Draft at school. Nothing special, I prefer the bottle. This isn’t as hoppy, nor is it as bitter, which I think is in the description.

Orange brown colour. Classic pale ale as far as I'm concerned. Not amazing but faithfully good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Golden with small head. Mild body with big hops. Classic pale ale. Would be interesting to have this side by side with the bottled version. Not sure why this is considered different.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 Particularly aromatic with hippy and citrucy aroma, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is very refreshing and easy to drink. Good intense bitterness and low malt aroma. I never found off flavours, both in bottle/car or draft.

A pale ale every beer drink needs to try! Tap at shamrock. Golden pale clear with visible carbonation that leads to an beautiful white fluffy head. Pine hops well balanced with sweat bready malt. Some soapy notes. Extra overall points for this being a true classic.
