Once again I’m left with limited words about an awesome brew this pale ale definitely sets the bar for all the rest...pours a beautiful deep amber color with a 2 finger head and lacing that just last all the way through ...the aroma is amazing... a great citrus earthy nose that no other pale ale has yet to match...this beer has set the standard of all pale ales ...taste is a little malt with hops kicking in on the back end and finishes so clean and crisp ...enough of me rambling on this one if you don’t enjoy this there is serious problems with your taste buds best pale ale ever....cheers

An amazing beer in its time but now superseded by many better ones. Still very refreshing though. Not too hoppy and quite malty and packs a bit of a pinch at 5.6%. Light mandarin orange background and pretty quaffable

Bottle from system. A decent ale and a big history behind it. Nothing remarkable

UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 Bottle at home bought from a local supermarket. Is an okay pale but is so old school now. Lacks hops and lacks flavour but is a fairly good beer

UPDATED: APR 12, 2018 355ml bottle. Clear amber beer with sweet taste changing to a slight bitterness. No real hop aroma or taste, but solid malt. No carbonation, but a nice head

snowcrash000 (214) - Cologne, GERMANY - APR 6, 2018
Pours a clear, deep gold/light amber coloration with a medium, fizzy head. Smells faintly of biscuity, bready malt, with a certain graininess coming through as well and the merest hint of citrus and pine. Taste is a good balance of biscuity malt and citrus hops, with just a hint of pine coming through and an underlaying grainy and slightly flowery note. Finishes with crisp, light/medium bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation. I wasn't gonna review this as first, as my bottle is a good six months old. However, reading the other reviews and knowing that SN are actually masters of brewing beers that keep well, I feel that the beer is actually supposed to have this slightly understated malt/hop presence, which is kind of typical of a classic, old school Pale Ale, I suppose. It's well balanced, crisp and easy-drinking, but lacks a certain bite and doesn't really seem that special. Maybe it really is better fresh, who knows.

Oiolosse (244) - Granada, SPAIN - APR 3, 2018
El borrador de SNPA en todos los otros lugares es una receta diferente y se enumera por separado. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale es un delicioso ejemplo del clásico estilo pale ale. Tiene un color ámbar profundo y un carácter excepcionalmente corpulento y complejo. El aroma fragante y el sabor picante son el resultado del uso generoso de los mejores lúpulos Cascade. <P> Botella acondicionada. IBU: 37 Saltos amargos: Magnum & Perle Finishing Hops: Cascade Maltas: dos filas pálido y caramelo

Piney nose, with some flowery notes. Orange and tangerine notes as it breathes. Medium body, moderate malty sweetness. Pleasant bitterness with a nice hop flavor. Bitter finish with no harshness. Well-balanced pale ale that's not overdone in alcohol or bitterness.
