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.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Rerate Solid, session worthy APA, just the right amount of bitterness and sweetness. Nice orange, amber hue, decent head and sprucey aroma. Clean mouthfeel Original 4.1 Excellent - North Coast impresses me again. Clean, fruity aroma. Tart, but not overly hoppy flavor and a thick long lasting head. Finishes strong - looking forward to the IPA next.

a nice drink, but i felt it was seriously lacking some hops as a pale ale. probably the least hoppy pale I have had.

Bottle. Good malty flavor with understated hops. Smooth and silky on the palate. A good beer but nothing to make it interesting.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 smells like granny smith apples, has a nice light amber color, very apple like flavor and very light on the hops for a pale ale, extremely smooth and refreshing..Good stuff

Light gold color, medium head. A lighter bodied pale ale. Mild hops and malt. Good flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Pours with a coarse bubbly head which sticks around for a little while. Crystal clear - lightl copper color. Aroma is mild and not as big as some other CA pale ales Iíve tried. Flavor is slightly floral and sweet. Slight mineral aftertaste. Easy drinking. Sampled at about 50F. Iíd like to try the draft version closer to the brewry but overall a good beer.

An Okay Pale ale. Admittedly, this is not my style. American Pale ales are too often dominated by the hops. This one is true to that form. Nice full of hops flavor that is just too strong for me.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2002
This is an O.K. APA - no more, no less. medium thick malty body, long lasting hoppiness makes a dry but not crisp finish. orange color, medium head that doesnít last.
