partyninja (17) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2009
The best way to enjoy the worlds finest beer (Sierra Nevada Pale Ale) is from a bottle into a glass. Although on draft it still smokes about 99% of beers on the market, get a bottle instead and pour into a cold pint glass. Mmmmm.

Westy1130 (75) - New York, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Rich golden amber with floral and fruity aroma/taste and a dry clean finish. I was surprised to learn that this is not as hoppy as the bottle/can version. I would like to taste test both back-to-back, since i dont remember much difference.

john44 (3041) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
Draft at White Horse American Festival July 2008 - As "Sierra Nevada Extra Special Pale" - Golden Brown in colour. White head. Very hoppy; good hop bitterness. Bitter citrus-fruity (bitter lemon & grapefruit). Malty backbone, sweet biscuity malts, caramel. Bittersweet hoppy and citrus fruity throughout. Dry hoppy finish. Very drinkable. (2008-07)

roflorence (77) - South Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2017
Dark golden, clear colour from the tap with 2cm of head. Pine and tropical fruit aroma and taste. Quite a bitter taste but nicely backed up by caramel-y malt flavours.

luttonm (6045) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Growler Guys, Seattle. Thin bubbly, lingering cream. Dark gold, clear body. Mild bitter aroma, lighter hop. Clean malty sip, lovely late bittering cleans up the palate well. Lighter in many ways than the beer I know and love from the bottle. Nice.

mike_77 (6367) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2016
Dark copper colour. Aroma and flavour have very muted hop notes. Hints of caramel malts. A really poor effort. Its a lager+

elosop (392) - SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2016
Ljust mahognybrun med tunt vitt skum. Doftar friskt av karamell, lite frukt. Smaken tmligen tunn men vlbalanserad maltsmak. Eftersmaken ganska kort, lite torr.

oobawa (1202) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Cascade hop goodness, but missing the spicy, anti-egalitarian soul of its bottle-conditioned brethren. Bit of a downgrade for the draft-only iteration. But not by much.
