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.

Can from Deguchiya. Pours a clear gold with a half-finger of head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nice light tropical fruit nose with some citrus and floral notes. Biscuity malts and honey come out as it warms on the palate. The tropical notes linger. Well-balanced with a medium body and average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish, but easy drinking. Solid pale ale.

355ml bottle at home. Clear golden with a full white soapy head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Citrus, hops and malts. Refreshing.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Another good session beer in the same vein as the Easy Jack. Crisp, slightly less citrus and more floral than its counterpart.

Yellow body with a long lasting white head. Grass, light toffee & limey aroma. Full bodied mouthfeel with citrus & tropical fruit lasting bitterness with some sweetness to balance. An outstanding beer. Rated by BrewTom

stravale (2723) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle from Bradley’s, Cork [240416]
Blonde, clear, frothy white head
Aroma of citrus, soft lemon, no malts, light sweet
Taste of citrus hops, soft zest, light sweet pale malt, soft lemon, touch floral
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, light sweet, light zest bitter. Finish of soft sweet fruits, zest
Overall - Decent enough - but not a patch on their other beers I’ve tried. Bottle a bit old so hops probably have faded

VinegarStroke (381) - Napa, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2016
Tap: very pale color. Huge hoppy lift. Opposite end of the spectrum to the DBA’s. The palate has increased bitterness although it’s very fine and fresh.
