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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Appearance: clear amber color, nearing peach, with a solid, snowy-white head. Aroma: bare, hidden, with some fruit, sweet malt, but just barely. Taste: very light, easy, breezy, little hops, but solid body, fine taste, smooth and untroubled, an excellent example of a session ale, in that it bothers one not a whit and provides no distraction from the chat and the snooker, etc... Taste is nice and rich, yummy, sweet and malty, fruity, applish, cherry-like...not a great pale ale, but good enough.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2004
Golden, small dissapearing white head. Weak hoppy and floral aroma, rather empty. Floral flavour with some hops but the body and the aftertaste is quite bland and rises no eye-brows.

Light hoppy taste and also ligth hoppy nose. Very weak. Orange color. Not impressed.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2004
A nice smooth ale, I agree, it could be hoppier, but its not a IPA, so it being a little milder is cool with me, good brew, very smoth, but not outstanding, I would drink it again, but I prefer more of a hop kick!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle pours golden, clear, small white frothy head, spotty lacing, with light carbonation.   Buttery sweet hoppy aroma.   Very light hops on the flavor, moreso malts and some graininess.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes malty, grainy, and slightly nutty.   Not bad, but fairly boring.   Could stand to be a bit more hoppy.

ricardowess (25) - Sedona, Arizona, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Clear honey color... nedium head. Just a little bitter, but overall pretty balanced. Hints of orange or citrus fruits- nothing overpowering just a halfway pleasant pale ale.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Orange colour. Aroma: A little swimmingpool, a little butter and a little melon. Flavour: Chewy hoppy but smooth still. Medium bitter. Maybe a little thin.

rlgk (14381) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2004
Malty fruit aroma with some caramel. Fruity and with both malts and hops. But it could have had more body...

omhper (21417) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2004
Bottled. Clear orange. Sweet and caramelly. A light dose of hops. Some crystal malt and toffee, but not much else. Not an attention grabber.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2004
Pours an amber colour with a medium head. Light malt aroma with some strange citrus. Flavour of light malt and citrus. Not a bad beer but I was expecting more.
