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.

Pours a golden amber color with an off white head. Nicely carbonate although it comes off as somewhat flat on the palate. Aroma is sweet malt and honey, with a piney minty possible formerly resinous note. There is no way this is fresh, sad to say. With no date though, its impossible to know. Taste is sweet, honey, malt, slight bitter finish and maybe a trace of hops from the past. Not fresh, remember this being better...nice body though for 5% ABV.

Overall, a pretty dull pale ale with none of the hop tinge that you’d expect. Very bready with a stale aftertaste.

Bottle from man liquor. Pours a dark clear orange with minimal white head. Nose shows minimal citrus and light bread, very take nose. Taste is much the same. Not much going on, light citrus, malts and a light bitter finish. Nothing special but very easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle from Mouton Rouge Canterbury and drunk at home. Clear deep gold lasting off white head. Some crystal malt some hop on aroma. It’s an ok pale ale on the flavour, a little bit of decent fruit salad citrus flavours towards the finish. Satsuma and light tangerine. I would imagine it’s slightly better fresh. But the fruit on the finish is really extremely pleasant. Decent peachy fruit.
