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.

12oz bottle - pours an opaque deep gold with white head. Nose is hay/straw or straw/hay. Flavor adds grass and citrus with a small malty backbone. Watery but flavorful. Moderately bitter. Refreshing. I know understand the low ratings.

Migmar (219) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 14, 2013
Amber colour, modest head. Grassy hoppiness and some caramel, but only mildly. Bland taste that dissipates quickly. Better as "session beer" than most lagers, though.

ShaneJ (414) - AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle from Plonk. Very unexciting beer, tasted almost stale, wet cardboard, no hop aroma. Disappointing after some of their others.

BillHick420 (400) - North Dakota, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2013
Pours light amber with a white head. Nose of hay, sweet malts. Faint aroma of sweet malts and caramel. Pretty bland, light body, thin mouth feel.

Deep gold, clear, off white head. Aroma is subdued with light sweet graininess, mild floral hops and hint of citrus. Flavor is clean with light caramel malt note, balancing bitterness, mild floral hop flavor. Drinkable and mild light pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
