look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2
Appearance: Wonderful rich, deep amber. No head whatsoever which is a negative for me.
Smell: Delicate floral notes with undertones of citrus fruit.
Taste: First taste is fruity, a bit like a soft drink. Biterness then takes over and becomes almost too much.
Mouthfeel: Dry, sharp bitter aftertaste like lemon rind. Carbonation feels like very small bubbles, akin to pop.
Drinkability: Too bitter for me, not balanced. Will not try again, might not even finish the whole bottle.
Serving type: bottle

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale reminds me of a less hoppy Dales Pale Ale (I compare every canned pale to this beer) or a can of Budweiser that actually tastes good and has flavor. It's a very drinkable beer and might be a good intro beer for someone who wants to try something hoppy or bitter without being overwhelmed.
Serving type: can
