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.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2004
citrusy hops, lightly toasted malths, slightly grassy. Flavor is watery, toasted malt and grapefruit. Flavor is a bit of a disappointment after aroma - too passive

Bottled: Some hops in the nose, light amber color, flavor is light, watery, some citrus, some sweetness, overall kind of bland.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Amber colour with an average head. Aroma is lightly malty and floral. Flavour is watered down and a bit sweet. Not a good example of a California Pale Ale.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 20, 2004
On tap: Pours a med. amber with a white thick head. Descent but mild aroma of cascade and crystal malt. WAY TOO MUCH DIACETYL. This is anything but smooth. I expected more from this brewer. This even has a watery cardboard body. Just a really poor Pale Ale.

On tap at brewery...weak ale, watery, very little flavor and a big let down from a style I usually enjoy. Session indeed...

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUN 9, 2004
(Bottle) Generic pale ale that features a mild and somewhat sweet maltiness with a bit of corn flavor, but a pretty weak hops bitterness; Consistently bland and boring from start to finish, but the finish is rather weak and flavorless; Aromas of, well, not much, it’s kinda sweet with maybe a little maltiness; Pale golden color with a slight cloudiness; Large, off white head has average retention, fading to a thin layer, but the head has trouble grabbing the glass

Pretty much your typical pale ale, with some nice prominent hops in the finish, but not enough solid malt to make it stand out. Some grittiness as it warmed brought the mediocre ratings down a bit.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2004
Tap@North Coast. Pretty bland pale ale, grainy, malty and tinny, some lemony hops in the finish, but hard to write too much about it.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Amber pour with a foamy white head and some nice lacing. Light citrus and hops in the nose. Some malts, not much though. Very mellow flavors. The malts come through. Some crystal. The hops are faintly citrusy. A little floral. It’s hard to tell really. Everything seems to blend so well that it hides each flavor. Very smooth and refreshing.

Compared to thier other brew, Red Seal, this is just not in the same league. It is much more of a session brew with little or no stand out features.
