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.

There’s some doughy, malty sweetness in the nose, a bit of orange/citrus; lively carbonation; simple mild crystal malt flavor with a detracting metallicness; slight bittering; generally unexiting and disappointing.

Bottle Pours a slightly hazy light amber. Fluffy off white head Sweet light malts mostly in the aroma. Flavor is similar. Light, pale and fairly sweet. I suppose it is quite drinkable, esp for those who are not ken of bitter hoppy ales. Lacking substance though esp considering it’s nearly complete absence of a decent hops componant.

Blah. I’m looking for more in my beer. This is a very light with a sweet taste that didn’t help matters. I’d just assume give the rest of these away. Wait...I did.

thedm (4974) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 10, 2005
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of off-white colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated hazy brown colored body. The aroma was mild malty hoppy pale ale like notes. The mouth feel was tingly yet smooth with a mild hoppy finish. The flavor contained notes of mild caramel with malt and a mild hop content.

Light, malty, boring beer. Nothing of note in this one. Grabbed it in Harris Teeter in Carborro because it was one of about four beers on the racks I hadn’t tried. Next time I’ll just grab another six of Sierra Nevada.

Poured cloudy light amber with a good head and good lacing. Flavor is malty with a strong metalic finish and palate. The metalic finish made this a beer that I would not buy again.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Sour bisuit aroma with some apple dumplings. Deep golden in color with some haze. Cheap malt flavor with a tad of crispness. Me not much likey. Somewhat swill-esque.

heemer77 (5129) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Full bready aroma with some light apples. A fairly light amber coloring with a decent sized white head. The taste is subdued with dried apple chips. It also reminds me of chewing on wood. Strangely made. Thin, slick mouthfeel.

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Bottle. Very small off-white head that quickly dissipated, sparse lacing, fine sized bubbles, carbonated, transparent, and an orange hue. Malty, caramel and hoppy aroma. Flavor was sweet, mild smooth hoppiness, and lightly bitter. Mouthfeel was slightly tingly and thin. Light-mediium body. Nothing special.

pours a slightly hazy amber that heads well and leaves good lace. aroma is amazing-extremely fruity, with apricot being the dominant note. honestly, more apricot than DFH’s Aprihop. and while it is an amazing aroma, I am buying an APA, not a fruit beer (hence the score). still, what a crazy combination of esters and hops (amarillos?). fruitiness still a big component in the flavor, with some sweetness from the malts and some ok finishing bitterness. unfortunately, the flavor of the hops is a little soapy, and it carries into the aftertaste.
