Poured from a bottle into a pint glass slightly warmer that fridge temperature.
Upon being poured, Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale develops a wonderfully long-lasting, two-finger head of dense, white foam. The liquid is transparent gold.
The smell is pretty subdued, but I get a sweet biscuit scent and maybe a slight hint of citrus.
This beer’s taste is remarkably well-balanced and packs a lot of flavor for its style. More than anything else, I taste sweet, bready yeastiness, but it also has some pine and citrus, and a subtle, hoppy bitterness.
The mouthfeel is crisp and smooth, yet substantial.
This is what plain old beer ought to taste like. Really high-quality plain old beer, that is.
