Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (USA)

No one really does American style pale ales like the Americans. A few years ago I would have disputed the fact that Americans could even make beer. Sierra Nevada started brewing in 1980, and on the strength of this Pale Ale, I’d say they’re pretty good at it.

This is a real beaut of a pale, deep gold in colour, with fruit and caramel on the nose. There’s great citrus rind and grapefruit flavours and as it warms, wonderful caramelised sugar undertones. Well worth a 6-pack next time you’re at the drive -thru liquor store.

Here’s Lou Reed with ‘Last Great American Whale’ dedicated to all the anti-CSG protesters out at Bentley and other places around the world, looking out for the environment.  Get the message. Spread the word.
