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.

Light golden orange in color... Aroma of light malts, citrus hops... Flavor is light malts, hint of honey, minimal hop bitterness on palate... Really light, almost watery ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Migmar (248) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 14, 2013
Amber colour, modest head. Grassy hoppiness and some caramel, but only mildly. Bland taste that dissipates quickly. Better as "session beer" than most lagers, though.

Bottle from Plonk. Very unexciting beer, tasted almost stale, wet cardboard, no hop aroma. Disappointing after some of their others.

BillHick420 (424) - North Dakota, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2013
Pours light amber with a white head. Nose of hay, sweet malts. Faint aroma of sweet malts and caramel. Pretty bland, light body, thin mouth feel.

Moderate sweet whiskey aroma. Hazy orange color with a medium white head. Mild better beginning that fades kinda slow and gets sweet in the finish.

Deep gold, clear, off white head. Aroma is subdued with light sweet graininess, mild floral hops and hint of citrus. Flavor is clean with light caramel malt note, balancing bitterness, mild floral hop flavor. Drinkable and mild light pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rpaskie (16) - Alabama, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours deep gold with light white head. Has the aroma of a little citrus and a bit of caramel. Has pretty good body and is malt forward for an american pale. Caramel and orange notes are present. Grassy and citrus hop character. I enjoyed the pleasant and soft bitter finish. Overall a decent affordable session pale ale with decent balance.

floydian1 (917) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 17, 2012
330ml bottle. An orange-gold beer with a just off white head that persists and laces the glass. Aroma is dominated by simple honey malts with subtle citrus hop notes (oranges mainly). Palate is malty with a nice smooth mouthfeel and easy carbonation. Mild dry finish. The product description is accurate for this easy drinking APA.

Might be an old bottle. Cardboardy. No sign of hops. Caramally malt. A pretty insipid pale ale.
