UPDATED: MAR 21, 2006 Comparable to my other favorite American Pale Ale-Boulevard Pale Ale. It has a slightly better finish, a little rounder on the tongue with nice fruity notes. A very drinkable beer-great brew to quaff while grilling. One more and I’ve got 100 beers. What should I choose for number 100?

I found this beer to have a bit of a spicy taste. I could taste the yeast at the end. At the bottom of the bottle, I could see the yeast. That didn’t impress me. It made the beer look sloppy. Still a good beer, though.

I really like this beer. Hoppy, well formed, perfectly balanced mouthfeel - it does everything a good APA should. I reckon it may be the inspiration for Little Creatures, Australia’s top rating beer (last I checked). Great stuff.

Pours golden amber with thick head. Aroma of fruit malt and hops with a flavor to match. Slightly bitter hop finish.

do you want to know something interesting about snpa? its the second most rated us beer to bud. that’s pretty fn impressive. this is truly a classic beer and we all know what it tastes like. this is the one that started it all way back in the early 90’s for me. always agood standby. can leave a killer hang over though.

I really like this beer. Being a big fan of the India Pale Ale/Pale ales and enjoying hoppiness in my beers, I decided to take the plunge with the S.N. American Pale ale, and I am not disapointed. This is the kind of beer that I can make my "go-to" brew, and never get sick of it. It has a good medium hoppy flavor, not overpowering, but rich enough so that it is always enjoyable. Same with a nice grassy/hoppy aroma. The color is a nice brown/red and always is enjoyable. An excellent beer if I do say so myself.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2006 Pours a clear dark golden with a small white head. Grapefruity hops and caramel malts in the aroma. The taste follows the smell pretty well. Finishes dry. Good representation of the style.

12oz Very good quality beer for the price. Lively citrus and pine hops with enough malt to round out the bitterness. Very drinkable and the best choice at 7-11.

What can you say about the green monster? It is a standard? If you haven’t had one you’ve been living under a rock? Come on! Go grab a sixer and dive in. Easy drinkin’ if thoroughly unremarkable standard.
