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.

Bottle- Pours a slightly hazy golden color, dull white head. I get almost no malt flavor to this. Mildly hoppy, thin body, lots of apple in it.

Wolfenkopf (193) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2016
The scent of malt is really faint here. I took a few deep whiffs and caught some orange peel in there, but again, really faint. The brew is a pale amber, a shade deeper than a pilsner gold. The head is white and thins pretty quickly. The taste is pretty clean, not very dynamic, but it has a lightly sweet singularity. It is paler than pale, lighter than light. It’s crisp, tastes fine, but there’s not much character. There’s mild carbonation burn on the palate with every sip, but it’s not bad. There’s a thing filminess left behind. Not bad, but only a little more interesting than a Coors Banquet Beer.

ANZUShophunter (283) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2015
On tap at Buffalo Bar, Brisbane. Golden with more malt on nose than hops, ucommon for APA’s these days. A nice combination of malts for the tastebuds and a bit of spice on the palate.
