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.

where is this woman swinging? is she swinging? just be careful, your holding a beverage. pour: classic pale ale. nose: sweet pale malt, carbonation bitternessss mouth: like hops in your pale? wont find here, however nice malt character, lightly hopped, not much bitterness with a slight hop resin taste. mouth medium/light giving way quickly. overall, nice, easily quaffed, for those who like hoppy pales dont expect that here, this brew lets the malt shine foward, with a nice pin up girl. falling on a dangerous swing.

Garrold (1470) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Clear gold. Thick, lasting, white head. Pale, lager malt aroma. A little fruit salad. Taste is light sweet. Hint of bitter. Clean, fresh palate. Finishes a little dry. Sweet close. Not the tastiest beer, but quite refreshing, and easy drinking.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"a tiny bit better than others in the acme line, but still a slightly below average pale ale. not enough balance in the beer, the hops are ok, but they have no other presence to play off of."

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Dark amber, ephemeral foam. Smells faintly of flowers, bread and american hops. Tastes surprisingly sweet and feels equally surprisingly vinous; tastes of toffee, artificial-like sweeteners, rock candy and a bit of wood. The alcohol is certainly also present, and becomes overdominating the aftertaste. Nevertheless an enjoyable beer.

SNL (253) - - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden pour, small offwhite head. Very subtle nose, a little malty. Crisp malty taste, a little sweet, roasted notes. Aveage carbonation, slick texture, medium body.

deyholla (6714) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy orangish gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a lot of grain and biscuit with just a hint of grass underlying. Flavor begins thin but grows to have notes of sweet grain, biscuit and a touch of grass.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 Mørk gylden med lavt skum. Aroma av sitrus, gress og søt malt. Intetsigende smak. Samme som i aromaen. Tynn/medium konsistens.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a off white head. Taste sweet, grassy, caramel. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure what keeps happening to my older reviews, but this is a good one...better than their IPA actually.

Bottles from Rehills, Newcastle and Safeway, Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco. Dark golden coloured with a sweet toffee and gentle orange flavour followed by a light grassy and sugary almond-like finish. This is more a Steam Beer than a Pale Ale.
