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.

Lilja (1855) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2015
Flaska från craftbeer/galatea. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, honung, bröd med toner av marsipan. God sötma, fina malttoner, fruktig, jämn och fin, lätt beska.

Mr_Pink_152 (1341) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle from favourite beer, Cheltenham. Golden colour with a shite head. Aroma is surprisingly malty, and less hoppy than I expected. Taste is a touch sweet.

Vignale (2283) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2015
Flaska från craftbeer/galatea. Kopparfärgad, klar, medelhögt skum. Fin maltkropp med karamellsmak med en med djup i smaken, lite honung, sötare halvmörkt bröd och med en del sötma men förvånandesvärt lite humle och beska för en västkust pale ale. Trevlig, speciellt maltsmaken, men annars inte så upphetsande.

WABeerFiend (274) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 04.17.14. A: Somewhat opaque red/orange. No head with aggressive pour. S: Spices, sweet malt, grape. T: Grape, caramel dominate. Tangy citrus is more subtle. M: Crisp. It felt very carbonated. O: The taste was great. Sweet grape came on first, followed by caramel, and then a tangy citrus finish lingered. I loved it.

BOTTLE. Hazy orange pour with little head. Sweet caramel & honey on the nose. Toffee & caramel at front end with orange & malt at the back end, watery for a pale ale. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

Pyrmir (3697) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2014
355 ml bottle. Dark golden with big white head. Aroma caramel, toffee, malt and mild earthy hop notes. Taste is similar, light and fresh, caramel and malt. A bit too sweet for me

Idiosynkrasie (4376) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, white head. Biscuity, malty aroma with cautious honey touch, vegy, yeasty overtones, some orange zest. Taste is minimally sweet fruity, hints of orange and mandarine, light body, slightly watery. Loveless, anaemic, refutes any positive prejudice about California (concerning beer, of course, not e.g. the weather).

Brentv (442) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2014
From bottle. Pours a honey-color, a bit hazy with a pretty good-sized head that dissipates and leaves just a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty and faintly citrus. Taste is also malty, citrus, slight bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Light bitter finish.

Christpuncher (1573) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pure malt garbage. No hoppy flavor and is just a terrible tasting beer. Pours light orange in color. Smells malty. Had at Carolina ale house on Charlotte. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
