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.

The store that I get it at has a better label (itís like an old-stlye pin-up girl in a red dress). I donít like ridiculously strong tasting beers, and this is a nice, smooth tasting beer that has a delicious flavor.

Pours a yellow gold with a thick bellowing head. The aroma is warm grain and honey with a touch of citrus. The taste is amazing. Nice sweetly malted start with a bit of extra depth and a nicely bitter finish. This reminds me of more like an English ale rather than a California pale, but itís very good.

I think this is a good pale ale. Iíll pay the extra bucks since I canít find my favorite Sweetwater 420. Iíll say this is my favorite at the corner ABC, who recently started selling fancy beer. Otherwise, Broudyís is the place to go. Having just moved from Oregon. Iím having discover a new slew of frothy malt and hops.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Appearance: Pours a hazy, orangey-copper body with a full, bubbly white head. Smell: Pleasant aroma of toasted grains, caramel, biscuits, and some light citrus. Taste: Sweet, smooth caramel malts with a bit of toasted grains. Hops are fairly light and provide a bit of citrus as well as some floral notes. Ends with a softened finish thatís both lightly sweet and bitter. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Mild carbonation. Drinkability: A nice, light APA.

Lucent gold, thin but lasting and dense beige head, creamy medium body, medium carbonation.

Aroma: sweet malt, bready yeast, resinous citrus leafy hops.

Taste: lots of butterscotch and sweet malt, bready yeast, navel orange, and leafy hops.

Great flavors. More amber malts and less hoppiness than I expect from an APA.

I really think this beer is underrated, esp. for the style. A nice darker pale, witha a floral aroma. This brewery can make all their beers except for the wheat - which should be abandoned by all breweries everywhere, forever.

Very smooth and refreshing pale ale. Nice hoppy finish, but not so overwhelming that those who are not fans of uber-hopped pale ales wonít still enjoy. Has a nice honey lemon zest to the palate with a mellow finish. Exremely drinkable and friendly.
