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.

Pours crisp amber with gold around the edges, 1 finger creamy beige head, and agressive carbontion bubbles are apparent. Aroma is carmel malt, light citrus hops, flora hops and a slightly earthy backbone. Flavor is grapefruit, caramel, bicuity malt, and a nice fruity crisp melon note. FInish is slightly bitter with an unsweetened pink grapefruit tang at the end. While all of this is well and good, the problem is the beer is just too damn weak, it really tastes like 50% really good pale ale and 50% tonic water. Probably would be great to stock at a summer BBQ or camping trip.

Block (2152) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Orange pour with a large white head. Light aroma, some citrus and pale malts. Flavor is sweet consisting of mainly malts, yeast, some citrus. Pretty ordinary.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Pours a clear orange-amber color with a splotchy, cream colored head. The foam breaks apart into cloud-like clumps on the surface. A sudsy wash dries to the glass in skinny, jagged rings. The nose is not offensive, but it completely lacks excitement, showing primarily honey sweetened cereal grains and faint floral hops. Flavors are equally uninspired, sort of stale and grainy with a round honey sweetness. The floral hop notes lend little bitterness, barely noticeable if we’re being perfectly honest. Light bodied and lightly syrupy, the palate resembles sugar water more than anything else. Totally forgettable.

Poured pale yellow with a sparse head.Starts light, but has a nice finish. You want more. Somewhat thirst quenching, bit needs some more hops.

You get up every day to go to work to earn your pay. You cans spend it on any thing you want. You can buy this or you can buy a better pale ale.. What can I tell you to convince you to buy a better one? Nothing? Then why are you reading this? This pale ale is fair. Not poor, not good. Just fair. Nothing more or less. The end.

Migmar (255) - 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. 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.
