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.

A perfectly serviceable pale ale. Not the best, but I would drink this again, no problem. Typical malty/bready flavor with spicy hop finish.

Pours copper with a white head. Hops aroma with bitter/sweet notes. The taste follows the aroma and is bitter/sweet. It is medium in body with a sticky, bitter finish. Itís a decent IPA, but itís nothing special

madvike (3010) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle - Amazed at the low ratings on this one--North Coast has always been good to me. When I crack it, I know why. This one is golden and slightly hazy, with a thin foamy white head. Nose is light and fruity, with pear and tropical fruit syrup. Not much hopping to speak of. Taste has an odd savory aspect to it that transitions into dry, mineral and pale malt. A touch of herbal hops, honey, and more pear on the finish. Thin and overcarbonated.

Yellow color, white head. Stale hops, crackery malts, not a whole lot going on.

BeerandBlues2 (10390) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is stale earthy and citrus hops with a faint butyric component, biscuit malt, and light peach/pear fruity esters. Flavor is fruity esters, light hops and bitterness, light malt and a hint of oxidation with a dry finish. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation.

Chudwick (2278) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 11, 2013
12oz bottle - pours an opaque deep gold with white head. Nose is hay/straw or straw/hay. Flavor adds grass and citrus with a small malty backbone. Watery but flavorful. Moderately bitter. Refreshing. I know understand the low ratings.

Migmar (251) - 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.
