Bottle - Pours nice copper color with thick foamy white head. Aroma is full of citrus and hops. Palate is somewhat thin, but crisp and clean. Taste has some nice bite with a good amount of hops and a grapefruit-like follow through. Overall an excellent pale ale with a lot of flavor.

My favorite pale ale. The beer that inspired me to brew 3, 5 gallon batches (so far) trying to duplicate it. I really like the sweet malt and hop aroma. With a balance of flavor between the hops and malt that make it a shear pleasure to drink. The palate is just a tiny bit weak but man it’s a good beer.

On the orange side of clear gold. Slighty citrusy, perhaps bready aroma. Taste is mostly hops with a bit of spice and some vague undertones. crisp, clean mouthfeel with lingering hop bitterness. A bit too hoppy for my tastes, but delicious all the same. Satisfying pale ale.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale has a very nice clean and crisp taste. It also has a yellow/orange body.

Pours a light orange/yellow amber with a big soapy head. Not an overwhelming aroma, but has a nice floral/citric "fresh" smell along with some bready malts. The taste is really nicely balanced between the bready, not-too-sweet malt and the very floral hops. Good long, bitter finish. Very flavorful, and first-rate for the style.

Zinnamon (40) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2006
This was a tasty beer. Probably the best mass produced beer that I have had. It was delightfully bitter. An amber color and a good long standing head. I modeled my first homebrew after this.

jsquire (4662) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Golden amber color out of the bottle with an attractive cream colored head. Buscuity malt nose with fresh cutris hop notes. I can’t believe that I haven’t rated this standard beer yet. It is always a safe bet in bars without a lot of geek beer. Carmelly sweetness and bready malts balanced with sharp grapefruit and orange rind bitterness. Very solid beer after all these years.

Golden with little head. Floral, clean cascade aroma. Wonderful flavour with enough sweetness to balance the hops. Simple and great beer.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2006 Bottle from Wal-Mart -A good pale ale; Initial taste is somewhat citrusy with a little malt; Backbone is a little more bitter than what I expected, but still very good; A little pricey, but worth the extra dollar or two overr Bud and Miller.
