Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, ABV: 5.6%.
350 ml bottle, 22.90 SEK at Systembolaget.
A: The liquid is somewhat hazy and bubbly. The colour is gold with tones of orange. The head is fluffy and slightly off-white - some lacing occurs.
S: Mild, fresh and fruity on the nose. Big notes of hops, dried apricots, green grapes, citrus fruits, flowers, rye bread and spices. Very pleasant.
T: Fruity and bitter flavours of hops, dried apricots, mandarins, green grapes, freshly baked bread, spices, caramel, honey and yeast.
M: The body is medium. The bitterness is medium to large. A drinkable pale ale, with a relatively balanced mouthfeel.
O: A very nice and stable APA - an easily drinkable session beer. I suspect that it would be a great choice paired with lots of different tasty types of food, as well.

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.)
