pleispleis (167) - Maccagno, ITALY - AUG 25, 2017
bottiglia 355 ml, schiuma panna fine media persistenza, colore ambrato velato, al naso vago frutta tropicale e spezie, in bocca malto note agrumate uva ananas pesca, corpo medio, carbonatazione decisa, moderato amaro lungo nel finale. Non mi ha entusiasmato, forse pechè bevuta dopo la data di scadenza?! Riproverò... 25.08.17

Pohodová APA z pivovaru Sierra Nevada. Jemné ovocné aroma, hořká, ale přitom nasládlá chuť a hustá pěna.

La Sierra Nevada Pale Ale est la bière la plus populaire la brasserie américaine Sierra Nevada. Elle a une couleur orange à ambrée avec une mousse blanche et duveteuse pour un caractère complexe et corsé. De généreuses quantités de houblon Cascade donnent à la Pale Ale, son bouquet parfumé et une saveur épicée. En bouche, on y retrouve des saveurs de fruits, de pamplemousse, d'orange et de caramel. Une Ale de qualité primée de nombreuses fois lors des salons américains et britanniques ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber in color with small white head. Aroma is hops and citrus.Taste starts with a bit of sweet and sour, and comes after a bit of bitterness and lingering finish.Light to medium body. Have a good balance.
