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.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow with a billowy 1.5 finger head with great retention. Aroma has a belgian yeast quality to it with lots of fruity esters, especially orange and lemon. A little light bready malt as well. Taste is quite fruity and full of orange and grapefruit. Again there is that Belgian quality with the spice and fruit. Some light bread it detectable but no flavor is very strong. A light bitterness cleans everything up at the end. Overall, it is an ok pale ale but somewhat lacking in flavor. The spice and malt is different than other APA’s out there but not really enough for me to seek out again.

Light amber beer with some golden/orange highlights. Slightly hazy, effervescent bubbles, and nice white head. Aroma is very mild, there’s some fruitiness but also an unpleasant hint toward grain husk that’s foreboding. Very easy drinker here, not a ton of depth. There is some sweetness that plays nicely with the biscuity malt, also tending towards a lighter grain, while the hops make an appearance without leaving much behind.

Pours a cloudy pale golden yellow with a medium white head. Aroma and Taste of biscuit malt, some grapefruit and fruity notes, with some light grass and a bit of barnyard and yeasty notes, followed by some hops bitterness. A medium body and soft carbonation on the palate. Finish is biscuit malt some light grapefruit and citrus notes with some grassy and mild funky notes. This seems a bit light for the style, needs more hops, and carbonation. Nothing really standout about this brew. Overall an ok brew. I was expecting more from North Coast.
