It's hard to say anything that hasn't already been said of this excellent beer!
From a 12oz bottle poured into a bar glass.
A - Poured a polished golden copper color with a fizzy head that made a quick exit. Very little lacing once the head was gone. Pretty lively carbonation.
S - Classic pale ale, with floral notes of tea rose, honeysuckle, and malty sweetness.
T - Never disappoints, with a nice balance between the sweetness of the malt and the bitterness of the hops.
M - Nice to roll around on the tongue, medium body with a little bite from the carbonation.
D - This ale is so balanced between sweet and bitter that I could drink it all day and night. Definitely a session beer for me.
Thank goodness that Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is so readily available in bottles and on tap! It is often the only beer that interests me in places where most patrons want the 'usual suspects' (i.e. Bud, Bud Light, Miller Lite, etc etc). Thanks to Sierra Nevada for making an excellent and accessible beer!

12 oz bottle into a tumbler. I really need to work on my glassware situation, but I feel like any glass is better than none. Last one from a 6 pack, enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It's a style I love, and pretty typical for it.
Pours a slightly hazy light amber/dark blonde with less than one finger of creamy off white head. Lacing isn't anything to write home about.
Sniffs Good. Subtle and hoppy, probably cascade. Mouthfeel is pretty light, and drinks smoothly. Would be a good beer in the summer, and is great right now late in the winter too. Tastes well balanced with plenty of hops. If you don't like hops this one is pretty approachable. (People should just drink what they like though.)
