Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company (brewery website)
Origin: USA – Type: American Pale Ale – Alcohol: 5,6%
The beer: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is one of the most emblematic beer of Sierra Nevada Brewing Company – it is the beer from where all started and it is, according to us, in our TOP 5 American Pale Ale style. When you are looking for a hoppy, flavoured and aromatic beer, we have all the tendency to turn ourselves towards IPA style beers which are generally, it’s true to say, the hoppiest and most aromatic beers. However, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is an exception to the rule. The usage of the whole-cone Cascade hop gives to this beer a very fragrant bouquet which make it very refreshing and thirst-slaking. Grapefruit, some spices, malts and caramel are present on the after taste. Colour of the beer is amber with a small white head.
The little extra: Hoppy, flavoured, slightly malty: one of the best American Pale Ale style beer!
Where we bought it: At la Cave à Bulles. A very nice beer shop in the heart of Paris not far from Beaubourg and the Hotel de Ville. You will find a very large choice of beers from Belgian to USA with Japanese and Norway beers on the shelves. Simon will advise you on the beer that will be the best for you or for a present. A must visit if you are looking for new beers!
