A delicious and hoppy pale ale. I enjoy this one very much. All of Sierra Nevada's beers that I've had were great. A great 'everyday' beer.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 I don't know what else can be said about this great pale ale. This is what turned me on to "good" beer about a year ago, and by some means I stumbled across ratebeer.com a few months ago while searching for Sierra Nevada product information. God Bless it, every one.

Draught. A quite good, reliable Pale Ale. Full floral fragrance with a grainy, spicy texture. Plenty of spicy hops. Strong hints of citrus and pine. Crisp, clean finish.

This is truly some nice stuff. Beautiful color... very pleasing to all senses. Looks,smells, and tastes fantastic. Very heavily hopped which gives it a clean bite that I never tire of.

Ahh, Sierra Nevada, one of my favorites. I can't say much that hasn't been said already about this fine brew, so I will just say "Drink it." That is all.

Citrus and pine aroma. Dark golden with white frothy head that receeds fully with some lacing. Plenty of hop flavour and a balanced maltiness. Medium body and carbonation but mouthfeel is quite full. Quite a decent pale ale. Bottle.

this is available at every liquor store, or bar, so if there is nothing else, one will turn to the Sierra. A decent brew, but The celebration is much much better.

I had heard a lot about this beer from other "micro" beer drinker, so when it went on sale for $4.99 a six i thought i,de give it a go. Pours pretty nicelly, but doesnt hold a head to well, the smell is good. Has a nice after taste to it , thiough the feel in the mouth is pretty average. I was drinking this with a hang over already so maybe i found the drinkabilty less than i would have in top condition LOL

The best pale ale I've ever had. If I were ever gonna buy pale ale again I would surely buy this again.
