SIERRA NEVADA PALE ALE

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale by "Prospect" Martin Beves. This is the iconic beer that kick started the US craft beer industry way back in 1980.

Today it’s still the second best-selling craft beer in the US (thanks wiki). The beer which created the obsession and style of American Pale Ales remains the benchmark to which others are compared.

Had it not been for Sierra Nevada we’d probably all still be drinking mega-swill. There is a reason why – it’s damn tasty. 

It is proof a simple beer can deliver - pale and caramel malts, Magnum and Perle hops for bittering and a generous amount of whole cone Cascade hops for flavour and aroma.

There is a small amount of caramel sweetness upfront, backed up with some floral, citrusy and light pine flavours. It’s refreshing yet flavoursome.

A great example of a well balanced beer. Hop heads and beer nerds won’t be blown away by this beer, but they won’t be disappointed. It’s a great beer to ween your mates from mega-swill to tasty craft beer. 

 

9/10
