Review by Andy
SIERRA NEVADA SAY…
The beginning. A classic. Our most popular beer.
Pale Ale began as a home brewer’s dream, grew into an icon, and inspired countless brewers to follow a passion of their own. Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic, yet it remains new, complex and surprising to thousands of beer drinkers every day. It is – as it always has been – all natural, bottle conditioned and refreshingly bold.
A bit of an icon this one, been around for a while and definitely had an impact on the craft beer boom we have seen in recent years.
A typical American pale ale, with the brash and bright coloured bottle and the normal small bottle size, what I’ve come to expect now from the USA.
Smells full of hops and fruity and tastes pretty much as the aroma. A classic summers bitter to the taste, very palatable and at a respectable enough 5.6%, if you enjoy your beers fresh, fruity and hoppy then this will suit you down to the ground.
A very popular American pale ale this one, you can see why too, refreshing, fresh, fruity and full of flavour this ticks all the boxes you’d hope it does and a fine example of this type of beer, if you haven’t had the pleasure head out and find as you wont be disappointed.
