UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 Something about the hops in this beer or something that make it less enjoyable to other hoppy beers. It’s alright, but I guess I don’t like magnum and Perle hops.

not exactly my favorite beer but i must admit that it broke my pale ale cherry. since then ive found quite a few that i like more but this is a good solid brew thats more than easy to find. ive heard that it has lowered in quality since theyve started mass producing on a grander scale but im afraid im too young to say so for myself.

Nice floral aroma, clean and crisp taste with spicy hop profile. Excellent session beer. There are better beers out there, but SN is an excellent value. I’m factoring in the approx $1/beer price when I give it a 17 here.

It starts with the nice amber color and gets better. It has a honey citrus flavor with some sweet caramel taste. The bitter after taste is good. This is a great ale.

What is so great about this stuff? It is like the Bud of the ale world? Ok it is drinkable, and ussually easier to find than a urinal when out. I gues I like the fact that it goes on sale at the super market a lot. I guess it has a little bit of hops flavor that is impossible to find in just about any other beer that is so widely distributed. But a 90???? come on!!!!

Never gets old, even if it does get outdone. The label triggers instant sub-cortical, Pavlovian tremors of anticipation after all these years. Hoppier by a nose than the draft version, and without having done a direct A/B test, I’d have to say a little fuller bodied. If you haven’t tried one, do, just to par yourself with beer peers. This is part of the original Star Wars trilogy of beer drinking. Everyone needs to have the experience no matter how dated and silly it might seem to some younger audience members.

Don’t know the color. Nice hoppy aroma. this is a great cheap pale ale. couldn’t drink in a glass ’cause I would drink them to fast.

Nice amber body and white head. Spicy aroma with some citrus and hops. Nice cascade hops throughout. Good example of a pale ale but I’ve had quite a few others that I prefer.
