COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ACME CALIFORNIA PALE ALE is a smooth, clean ale with faint citrus and honey flavor notes and a dry finish. It is brewed with Yakima Valley hops and the finest American two-row malt, but with a measure of British specialty malt for depth. This easy drinking pale ale is a "session beer" which will be welcomed at neighborhood taverns and restaurants (and refrigerators) throughout the west.

Bottles from Rehills, Newcastle and Safeway, Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco. Dark golden coloured with a sweet toffee and gentle orange flavour followed by a light grassy and sugary almond-like finish. This is more a Steam Beer than a Pale Ale.

Draft at Churchkey. A pretty middle-of-the-road pale ale. Not bad, just not too exciting.

Maltser85 (263) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a golden amber color with an off white head. Nicely carbonate although it comes off as somewhat flat on the palate. Aroma is sweet malt and honey, with a piney minty possible formerly resinous note. There is no way this is fresh, sad to say. With no date though, its impossible to know. Taste is sweet, honey, malt, slight bitter finish and maybe a trace of hops from the past. Not fresh, remember this being better...nice body though for 5% ABV.
