Pale 31 is an ode to our home state of California—the 31st to be named in fact. Beer may not be associated with terroir the way wine is, but we believe that where we’re from impacts how our beers taste. This California Style Pale Ale represents the bold yet approachable spirit that embodies our state. A crisp floral hop aroma precedes a medium-body and clean finish.

Bottle from Trader Joe's. Pours crystal clear golden color with tiny bubbles. White head dissipates quickly. Nose and flavor are pine and a little citrus. The hops are quite muted. Finishes dry with a bitter aftertaste.

Mild hop aromas with some hints of citrus. Pale yellow in color, minimal head. Nice initial sweet flavor of malt with citrusy hop overtones. Mild bitterness from hops. Finish is quick and bitter. A bit watery but not bad.

mmahut (648) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 19, 2014
Clean pale, light amber, body with almost no head. Aroma has high honey on the nose, little bit woody, herbs, some citrus character in the background too. Taste is light caramel sweet with higher earthy bitterness, mostly balanced to the bitter side, with short lasting after taste. Body is full, medium carbonation, oily on the tongue.

RexTalionis (2141) - FINLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottled. Pours golden in color with a whitish head. Citrus tea with a load of malty and biscuity notes in aroma. Fruity sweetness with notes of honey, some nuttyness and hints of piney bitterness in taste. Feels very well balanced and isn’t overly hopped or bitter in anyway. Overall a nice brew with a good malty backbone that is present in the aftertaste.

Saeglopur (159) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark golden, clear body, with big, frothy, creamy, white head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, grass, candy. Tastes of lemon zest, grapefruit, pine and a tasty, smooth malt backbone of caramel, biscuit, grass and some candy. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grapefruit, pine and some candy. A refreshing, greatly balanced example of a west coast Pale Ale, that has tasty citric fruit and pine notes and also a determined malt backbone. Excellent!
