Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

  • SRM Color: 20
  • Brewer: Sierra Nevada
  • Brewer's Description: Our most popular beer, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, is a delightful interpretation of a classic style. It has a deep amber color and an exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. Generous quantities of premium Cascade hops give the Pale Ale its fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor.
  • Russ' Rating: 7/10
  • With the Brew: Pale Ales are excellent with a meal. The intense hoppy flavor cleans the palate and compliments the dish.
  • Comments: Hops have a natural preservative effect, and IPAs were brewed with extra hops in order to make the long trip from Britain  to India by ship. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is true to this tradition. The bold aroma surprises you almost as much as the first sip from the glass.
