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

Bottle at home. Pours a golden/orange, slightly darkened hue with a white head. Oranges, grapefruit, sweet malts. Very classic, typical pale ale, well executed.

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.

16floz can, COD: 06.29.2017, $1.50 single, imperial glass. Past experiences goes 15ish years on draft and bottle. Looks like the ideal APA; golden-amber in color and beige head that has some big bubbles and clings to the glass. The aroma of this beer is reminiscent of when American brewers would attempt balance the hop and malt characteristics (caramel and hard sugary candy). This will always be my standard bearer for a good stylistically APA, body is medium and firm with piney-caramel palate. Very versatile ale too.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 uma das minhas preferidas, malte em harmonia com lupulos americanos, aromas cítricos, boa acidez, final seco e excelente drinkabilitty.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Tap @ The Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Eerste reactie bij het serveren werd me verteld dat dit een spannende hop was. Nou als dit een spannende hop is dan kan ik net zo goed een kratje standaard pils halen daar zit minstens net zoveel spannende hop in. Ziet en schuimt als pils maar net iets donkerder. Alhoewel dat geen naam mag hebben. Kan door zijn koolzuur zijn naam als pils waar maken. Maar het is een Pale Ale! Ruikt zwak hoppig en nog veel minder fruitig wel heel klein zoetje en een standaard bitterje op het eind. Smaakt gewoon vrij vlak waar eigenlijk veel meer hop in zou moeten zitten. Vooral waterig en valt me gewoon tegen.... snap ook echt niet waarom zoveel anderen dit biertje zo hoog waarderen.

gyhallmanti (544) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2017
35.5cl bottle at home. Pours a clear orange amber colour with a small off white head which quickly recedes to a bit of foam creeping up the glass. Aroma of malt, grain, hops, honey, slight citrus, caramel, pine. Taste is medium sweet, medium dry with a nice dry finish. Notes of caramel, malt, wheat, hop, honey, herbs, caramel, toffee. Texture is watery to oily, light bodied with moderate carbonation

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2017 한국 크래프트비어계에 중요한 상징, 맥파이의 기준이 되었다는 맥주. 이제 한국에서도 보틀로는 쉽게 구할 수 있게 되었지만 가격과 맛 어떤 점에서도 썩 만족스럽지 않다. 좋은 말로 하면 classic, 나쁜 말로 하면 old fashioned. 맥파이가 이 단계는 넘어섰을지도 모른다는 생각마저 든다.

Bottle. Aroma: honey malts, tropical hops. Medium body. Dry bitter taste. Soft but solid resiny and grapefruity bitterness. Good classic ale
