Beer Review #4 - Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Appearance - Pours a light, clear amber with a medium white head that retains well and leave a nice lacing around my glass
Smell - A citrus smell, with underlying floral and pine notes.
Taste - Citrus (mainly grapefruit) and hops upfront. The bitterness from the hops is prominent. The taste lingers in the mouth.
Mouthfeel - A nicely carbonated, balanced feel. Crisp, clean, bitter, giving way to soft creaminess.
Drinkability - Very tasty. One of my favorite pale ales (a staple of mine). Strongly recommended!
