We have a California classic on the Windowsill today!
What’s left to be said about a classic pale ale like this one from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.? Well, let’s talk about Pale Ale for Trails. Starting this Sunday (Earth Day), and running through April 28, all of Sierra Nevada’s taprooms—Chico, Mills River and Berkeley—will be donating a portion of proceeds from every single Pale Ale served to the National Trails System. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System Act, which was created to promote public access and preservation of historic outdoor areas, like the Appalachian Trail. So, as we head to the kickoff weekend for this charitable endeavor, go have yourself a Pale Ale!
You can’t really go wrong with the Pale Ale. It’s hopped exclusively with Cascade hops, which makes for a brew with some unique piney and grapefruity aromas. Overall, I thought it was solid. Not spectacular, but few classics ever are. It’s just a good, solid brew: smooth and drinkable, but also refreshing and complex. It took me way too long to get this one on the Windowsill, but I’m glad I finally did.
Check this one out on Instagram now. Like and follow Beers on Windowsills for more great beer!

I have to say, I was overall very impressed by these collaborations. I learned a lot about a lot of new breweries, and every beer ranged from good to great, in my book.
