Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (from draught)


This is one of the classics: a pale ale that helped launch the craft beer revolution in the USA. I had it from draught at the Anglers in Teddington after a cycle ride, and it was just the ticket (from an otherwise slightly uninspiring list of beers on offer). The draught version is a little lower in alcohol and a bit less bitter than the original, with more colour and a sweeter malty character. It means you can sink a pint of it. This isn’t the world’s best ever beer, but it’s really good.

(Draught) 5%
Lively bright and balanced, with some toffee sweetness from the malt well balanced by a twist of citrus and pine hoppiness. Satisfying, quite complex and drinkable. 8/10
