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.

adamnowek (717) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2015
Orange brown colour. Classic pale ale as far as I'm concerned. Not amazing but faithfully good.

rumproasts (4189) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
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.

EvaCandido (46) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 22, 2015
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.

stevencon (512) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
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.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 Cerveja de coloração dourada para o laranja, saborosa e refrescante. Melhor cerveja da Califórnia em custo-beneficio. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Beachhouse. Pours a clear caramel/copper with a nice head that lasts. Aroma has notes of caramel mixed with pine. Taste is balanced. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a really nice beer.

loubar (154) - Los Gatos, California, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Golden-amber colored with a thick, white head. Nose of light caramel and bready malt mixed with a small amount of citrus. The taste begins with a bready, caramel sweetness. Then the bitterness increases with citrus and grapefruit that linger pleasantly on the tongue. Lightly carbonated. Balanced, rich flavor makes for a very satisfying and easy drinking brew.
