Sierra Nevada Pale Ale tastes like hop water to me. There isn't enough malt character for balance. It also has a weak flavour that tastes almost like... chlorine.

A: Clear yellow/orange colour and a 8 mm head that lasts reasonably well. 4

S: Floral, grassy hops. Pretty strong. 4

T: Grassy hops with a noticeably chlorine-like flavour. Not a strong malty base. Fairly bitter. 3.5

M: Foamy. 4.5

O: 3.5

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale: Got my hands on one. Usually I like to have a few before I do a review, but one will have to do. The Sierra Nevada has a deep copper color with aggressive carbonation. The slightly off-white head is thick, even and lasts to the end without a lot of lasing of the glass. Flowery hops are big in the aroma and in the flavor. Under the hop flavor there a subtle undertones of malt, and the finish has a bitter aftertaste, but in a good way. The Sierra Nevada is a solid offering that a beer drinker or any style will appreciate.
