Hey Admins! yer not gonna reverse the descision to count this a seperate beer are ya? ’Cause this one’s kinda important to me... Reddish coper, off white head. Mellow, earthy hop aroma. Thickish, mushy palate. Nicely viscous malt base. earthy hop flavor. Nit as aggressive as the bottled version, but better balanced. One of my faves.

On tap: This is the first time that I’ve had Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on tap since I’ve joined RateBeer. In the bar I wrote down my ratings and now that I’m looking at my first rating in the bottle and see that all the numbers are unchanged. Nice!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprised to see this is a separate listing, because the draft and bottle version are too similar in my opinion to justify it. Oily sweet hop oil and a slight honey flavor, slightly buttery, mild sweet malt body with a light citrus plastic hop finish.

Copper color, off white head. It still has the crisp, green hops and balanced tone of it’s bottled counterpart. Orangey. Always a treat and always very drinkable.

Draught at Farley’s Food, Fun & Pub, Roswell, New Mexico.
OK off-white head, clear amber clored body. Hoppy and flowery aroma. Mostly hoppy flavor with flowers and nuts. Really tasty and easy, one of these beers you can drink all night long!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ll be the first to whore myself for a rating after this posting I guess. Copper orange in color with a medium lived white head. Some lacing. Nice hoppy aroma full of West Coast hops. Decent malt aroma also. Fairly hoppy flavor with a bit of caramel malt present. Nice pale ale. Time to crack a bottle tonight while this is still fresh in my head and compare.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2005 Anytime you have SNPA on tap nowadays, you’re drinking this. The only place you can drink the bottle version on tap is at SN’s taproom. This is exactly the opposite of what it used to be however. I find this version to be bit more palatable than the regular SNPA with more liveliness and balance. Why haven’t people been rating this?

UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Pours a bit lighter then the bottled version with less of a head. I didn’t know that there were the two versions, I just found out today. The aroma is a little less hoppy in this version. The aroma had a little citrus, malts and orange in it but nothing to go crazy about. The taste is very solid always with this beer and it always cuts it. The bitterness is much less pronounced in this version of the beer. This is always a fine session beer to enjoy because of its high avaliability on draft.
