Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a delightful example of the classic pale ale style. It has a deep amber color and a exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. The fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor are the results of the generous use of the best Cascade hops.<P> Bottle Conditioned.

always a classic choice... its a great IPA that is growing nationally even though it started from a small little town. The best widely avail. microbrew in the US.

"Out of the bottle it pours a nice golden color with a nice head. Had a sweet aroma. Carbonation was good with an average mouthfeel. This beer had a creamy sweet taste to it. Not bad for a pale ale."

This is a great example of an American Pale Ale. Rich with hops and bitterness and yet still smooth to drink. When ever in doubt I pick up this beer for a nice enjoyable evening.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Amber, slightly cloudy color with an even, frothy white head. Nose is nicely floral with hops and a small bit of sweet grapefruit. Flavor is smooth and slightly buttery with a clean, hoppy finish. Very good beer to have around for an all-purpose everyday drinker.

Overall a good, hoppy beer. Grapefruit aromas abound from the cascade hops. Interesting to see that it is bottle conditioned.

Amber, Clear with a short white head. Aroma is dominated by hops and a hint of sweetness. A light palate with a light texture but not watery. Refreshing with medium carbonation and a metallic and slightly spicy finish. The main body is hopsy and floral with a touch of fruit and sugar.

12 oz bottle Pours a good amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of carmel and grapefruit. Light bodied and very even tastes. Not too hoppy or strong. Good carbonation and an enjoyable ale.

One of the finest Pale Ales available. I recall my first taste of this tasty beer in the early 90s as the craft brewing craze began to percolate. This is an excellent every day reliable beer with a moderate hop content and nice finish. Now if the Celebration Ale were available all year round who knows...

im really glad i got this for xmas cause i was considering paying $10 a bottle for it to fly it in from perth which would have been dumb. anyway this is nowhere near as good as LCPA. paler than expected - clear yellow orange, fairly high carbo. big cascade aroma, obvious but good - fresh and flowery. surprisingly light body, slightly bready malt, but seriously underweight, verging on thin. slightly chalky, round mouthfeel. at the end you have this lingering, white-noise bitterness that goes nowhere and doesnt have much to do with the rest of the beer. honestly, glorious aroma aside, this has more in common with reschs or something than what I think of as a good APA.

for a standard pale ale, this really is better than average. another sixer down the Kohler this week, and what better american macromicro to do it with than this one. take some to a party and people think youre savvy, yet youve not gone over their heads with something they cant appreciate and cost you a fortune.
