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.

I really think this beer is underrated, esp. for the style. A nice darker pale, witha a floral aroma. This brewery can make all their beers except for the wheat - which should be abandoned by all breweries everywhere, forever.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2008 Frothy copper. Very foamy beer. Not necessarily a good thing. Nose is very sour. Ale yeast is pretty clean in the nose but also very sour. Not a whole lot going on. Very faint sweetness. Hops? This is either an incredibly balanced beer or it is just kind of flavorless. Malts really predominmate this guy. You can taste the maris otter just after you swallow it. Citrus first. Orange rinds. Then sweet malts and finally a dry and slightly hopped finish. As stated very balanced. Quite restrained. Not bad but not great either. Mouthfeel is quite thin.

Deep gold with a small foamy white head. Mild Cascade family hop aroma with some grainy malt. Residual fermentable malt sweetness with some grassiness and muted citrus notes. Hop characters most noticable in the finish, with some astringency. Mouthfeel is light medium and fairly dry.

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.

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...
