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.

Impressive 50% head and nice sticky lace over deep golden beer. Malty aroma. Light bodied and heavily based on cereal-malt flavors, this isn't well labeled as a pale ale ...

Nice floral hops on the nose, light copper colour. A nice stab at an APA, but I'm just not crazy about honeyish malts in a pale. Reminds me a little of Anchor Steam, but not quite as strong. Decent hop presence up front, but it's quickly pushed off the palate by the malt and stays off for the remainder of the glass.

DYCSoccer17 (3312) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Pours tranparent copper color with a 2.0 cm white head. Quickly dissipating. Aroma is faint--maybe a little malt in there with faint hops, if any. Sour hoppy start and middle with a malty sweet finish. Not terribly memorable, but like the description says, it's a good session beer which is very drinkable.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Clear, light golden. Thin head, nice lace. Aroma is nearly non-exsistent, I get a sall hint of grain and hops and I mean small. Medium bodied, creamy, understated malts and hops. No style at all. At least soup it up with some hops, geez. Don't know what to say, it doesn't taste bad, just not alot here. My first homebrew had more elements to it. Nice body though.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Orange brown color, small white head. Soapy hop aroma. Ceral like malt flavors, slight fruit touch, weak hop finish.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Golden amber, white head. Floral hop aroma and flavor, some grainy malt. Medium body, shorter finish. Decent.

Smooth, light and refreshing. Milder version of SNPA

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2003
Pour amber with a diminishing white head. A very sweet malt aroma. The taste is equally as sweet. A nice malt flavor but no hops to balance. A sweet almost cloying aftertaste. Not bad flavor but a dissapointing APA. Should be classified as an English pale ale.

kumite56 (471) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - OCT 21, 2003
I did not like this beer. Appearance was pretty good with a large white head. Weak and watery on top of a flavor that is distinctly malty beer. Sweetish with little in hopps showing up. A beer fit for Wiley Coyote only.
