COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

660ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Zesty lemon spice, lemongrass aroma. Thin palate, perfumed soap and floor cleaner lemon and sweetness. Works in the aroma, but is boring after that.

Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is malt, quite fruity, citrus and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a hoppy finish. Nice stuff.

Sigmund (5104) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 355 ml bottle, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. ABV is 4.9% according to front label, according to rear label (from German importer BraufaktuM) it is 4.6%. BB date 30.07.2013. Malts are Pilsener, Pale (Maris Otter), Münchener, Caramel. Hops are Fuggle, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of caramel, orange marmalade and American hops, also some herbal notes. Smooth mouthfeel and flavour, moderate carbonation. Not too sweet, a little caramel, herbal hops but not very bitter. Not bad at all despite BB date, but will sample again when I get a fresher bottle, might be even better fresh.

A well made pale ale. Too straightforward to make me love it but if looking for a safe pale ale without unique hoppiness this is a refreshing and solid choice. Bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (3760) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
4th July 2014, on tap pint in The Public House Bar, Venetian, Las Vegas. Solid enough Pale Ale with plenty of citrus hop notes in both the nose and taste, crisp and refreshing. The bar is fairly dark so the exact colour eluded me, light amber maybe? Medium bodied, if a little over carbonated for my UK palate. Came very cold, flavours appeared gradually as the beer warmed a little and became more bitter as time went on.

A "California Pale Ale". Doesn’t taste that great, actually. I would be interested in trying more from this "style", if they exist.

It's a good pale. Honestly, I had it a couple hours ago at a BBQ and don't remember much about it, other than, "Hey, that's good." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from the "Beer Shoppe". Pours a clear golden orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus, and pine. Taste mimics the nose. Decent, but nothing special here. Your run of the mill pale ale.
