Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Pale Ale

The nose is big. It's light and crisp with fairly distinguished hops and malt characteristics.

It has a light amber color which isn't perfectly clear (to make it feel like a homebrew). The beers pours to a thick head which dissapates quickly and doesn't stick to the glas

Once the beer is in the mouth, the hop character predominates and provides for a long, bitter finish. The body is light, and the bubbles tingle superbly. The balance is tilted towards the hops--it would be better with more malt and therefore more body, but if you're a hop-head (which I am) this beer's for you!
