look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: dark blonde/golden with about a 1 inch head
Aroma: citrus fruity smell with a slight hop
Taste: somewhat bitter malt but overall pretty well balanced- not too hoppy

Overall: I personally prefer pale ales that have more hop and are a little less bitter... but you can never go wrong with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale!

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 1" off white head. Amber color. Decent amount of carbonation bubbles streaming up.

Aroma: pine and citrus hop aroma.

Mouthfeel: light to medium body and slightly sticky. Mostly dry finish leaves me eager for the next sip.

Flavor: Sweeter malts dominate up front, hops in the center and finish.

Overall: a classic of the craft beer revolution Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is a wonderful enjoyable quaff year round.
