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.

Bottle. Lemon and hops in the aroma. Taste is very citric, with a hint of caramel and fairly watery overall. The finish isn’t as nice as I’d like...the usual bitter bite is replaced with a funky, artificial flavoring tartness that really doesn’t work. Not awful, not good, just meh. 5% alcohol.

Cloudy medium gold,short head some froth.Leaves some spitty residue. Aroma is a light airy clean citrusy lemon.Some herbal almost skunk. Taste is medium bodied,with some citrus,light carmel,tartness almost distracting.Tart citrus finish. Not really that great of a pale ale.Diety tart kind of harsh finish.

where is this woman swinging? is she swinging? just be careful, your holding a beverage. pour: classic pale ale. nose: sweet pale malt, carbonation bitternessss mouth: like hops in your pale? wont find here, however nice malt character, lightly hopped, not much bitterness with a slight hop resin taste. mouth medium/light giving way quickly. overall, nice, easily quaffed, for those who like hoppy pales dont expect that here, this brew lets the malt shine foward, with a nice pin up girl. falling on a dangerous swing.

From the bottle at The Office in Warwick, RI. This is exactly what I would classify as an American beer. It’s a beautiful golden amber with a cloudy character. The aroma is sweetly hoppy. A very light mouthfeel. Tastes malty with a dry hop finish.

DeliriumT (354) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2012
Aromaless, flavourless bland lager moonlighting as an ale. Smells of straw and VERY faint malt. Tastes like a slightly less dry, fuller pale lager

burg326 (3245) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2012
12 ounce bottle pours a golden color, aromas of citrus, light grass and some caramel. Flavors are the same, light bitter peel in the aftertaste, average pale ale overall.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Grainy, light citrus, some sweeter husky malts. Flavor is lightly bitter, paper, grainy malt, faded hops. Are these beers ever fresh? And who Is buying this?

BucannonXC5 (746) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2012
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Sept. 7, 2012 (purchased at Cost Plus World Market in Grossmont (San Diego, Calif.) for a solo price of $1.99 on Sept. 6, 2012). Two fingers of head. Poured a caramel orange with off-white lacing. Below average cretention on the top and average on the sides. Smelled light citrus hoops, seemed to be orange more than anything else. Caramel malts, lemon, wheat and honey. Tasted similar to the nose. Malty. Light citrus (orange), iced tea and slightly bitter. Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. Pretty average beer overall.

BVery (5617) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle. Slightly hazy bright orange pour with a small foamy white head. Aroma is a bit dank - mild floral hops and musty. Moderate palate. Taste is bready malts, lightly bitter, and a bit sweet. Not a standout brew.
