Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale poured a semi-clear, amber orangish color with a two fingered white head. The nose was really clean, with some pale mat and a lot of hops. The body is smooth and has a faint sweetness up front. There are a lot of clean, crisp hops throughout. The finish is hoppy with a lingering dryness. The beer left faint spotted lace on the glass.

Overall, this is a great beer. Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale is incredibly well balanced and it is a very versatile beer that can be enjoyed during any month of the year and with plenty of different dishes. A true craft beer classic.

It is definitely a craft beer classic. For years it has served as my default choice when I can't make up my mind, and after defaulting to it I always wind up being happy that I was indecisive.
