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.

Best of the lot that I drank in this sitting. Pale ale refreshing, which means more hops saying "welcome". But just decent.

Draft, Bier Garden, Asheville NC. Golden orange color. Orange citrus and strong tea nose. Same mouth flavors, with some sweetness rounding out the otherwise lightish body. Finishes with copper and tannin, like tea. Interesting.

Every pale ale I’ve poured is a coppery color like this one. This is on the hazy side with a small head, but good lacing. Aroma consists of cloves, hops and citrus. Nice crisp aftertaste and good carbonation. Weak bodied, but refreshing.

OldMrCrow (2157) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2006 From the bottle.

Pours golden-amber, moderately clear with a adequate but short-lived head.

The aroma is limited. Palate is watery; the flavor is sweet, almost insipid, for a pale ale, with a late hit of very modest hop bitterness.

Nothing to drink here, move along...

Thin head, clear golden. Light hop aroma. Taste is herbal and thin, hints of hops. Some metallic and medicinal flavors as well, chalky. Thin body.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2005
bottle 12 oz. Almost clear lt. golden, small head that died quick, almost no lace. Aroma is creamy light roast malt w moderate hops. Flavor is semi sweet lt roast malt w light hops, just a touch sharp & harsh, (like it wasn’t stored properly or was old). Pushing medium bodied. There was a noticable bitterness on the finish.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Very orange pour....unusual. The flavor is of hops, but strange ones at that...slightly citrusy but kind of musky. The malt has low levels of cane sugar with just a hint of unpleasant bitterness. These Acme beers seem just a bit below the quality of what North Coast is capable of, but these are interesting in their own right.

Gold pour with minimal head. Aroma of malt, hopcit, some fruit. Tastes malty, with hopcit, slight fruit. Nothing special, but not bad.

A cloudy deep golden color along the lines of apple juice. Aroma show some light hoppiness and citrus. The flavor is all hops except for a faint taste of grapefruit. Lighter in flavor than a Bass ale this didn’t impress.
