I agree. IMO, if you think SNPA is a crap American pale ale, then one of 3 things must be happening:
1. You don't like non-fizzy yellow beer.
2. You have gotten SNPAs that has been treated very poorly.
3. You are an EAC.

Fixed for accuracy.

SNPA is a defacto GO TO beer in any restaurant. Good stuff and the bottles are great to reuse.

Yep no problems with it here, is it the most remarkable thing I've ever had? No but it's a good representation of the style and it's a solid everyday drinkable beer.

I buy a fair amount of SNPA. It's good, it's reasonably priced, and I love the stubby bottles. Anchor Steam bottles are cooler, but I enjoy the contents of the SNPA bottles more.

I have to say that I'll enjoy a nice cold SNPA anytime. I think it is a nice beer, and not too bad on the price either!

I bought a 6er after reading good things about it and being out of homebrew. I got it home and opened the first and was frankly disappointed. It's not bad, but it's not all that great. For the price (or $1 less) I would have preferred to have a 6 pack of Deschutes Mirror Pond, and next time I'll buy that instead.

Those who call it piss are probably the same who drink BMC. Pot? Kettle? Black???

It leaves me with a bit of a funky aftertaste, but I do like the aroma and up-front flavor. I'll often order it at restaurants with limited selections.

And I prefer Red Seal, but SNPA is everywhere.

SNPA, from bottles at least, leaves me terribly dehydrated the next day. My guess is that the liquor is heavily Burtonized.

drinking snpa always takes me back to when i first started to try flavorful beers. I love the stuff, it was my first introduction to real hop flavor
