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.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2014
From a 0.355l bottle @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a crystal clear golden one with a nice medium sized white lacing top. Light hoppy malty aroma, yeah it has some fruitiness also in the form of light apricot and peaches. Nice. It’s above average on the carbonation and light oily on the mouthfeel. A bit minerallish in the taste I guess. Lots of grassy bitter hops, some more of those peachy fruits found in the aroma. It’s a really lightdrinkable and tasty one. Sessionable. 04.05.2013

Narnad (1451) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Pours a very clean golden color with a very nice, thick white, bubbly head. Aroma has a strong floral, light grassy hoppiness with light notes of orange and lemon citrus. Flavor starts off with a very strong floral flavor that creates a sweet nectar like flavor. Light grassy notes with just a touch of toasted malt come in the finish of the brew. Body is light, slightly watery with a low amount of carbonation. Overall a really good pale ale. I love the nectar sweetness of the beer without it being cloying. The malt comes in at just the right time to break up the mild sweet from earlier in the tasting. Very good example of what an american pale ale should be.

kanerjus (34) - orimattila, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2014
tuoksussa kylmänä sappuavesi fiilistä. vähän karamellisuutta. kypsiä hedelmiä, sitrusta. maku on suht kuiva ja katkeroa on ihan kohtalaisesti. kääntynee enemmän kypsien hedelmien puolelle kuin sitrusmaisuuteen mitä sitäkin kyllä vähän löytyy. mäntyistä humalaa ei tästä löydy. suutuntuma on pehmeän kuohkea mutta saisi olla täyteläinen. pidän juuri tämän makuisista oluista isosti ja pisteet sen mukaan.

SimonTja (226) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
Soapy, a bit hoppy, very well balanced aroma with a bit leather feel to do the malts, very intruging. The taste is very very well balanced but with little bitterness, and very clean, with some hoppy aroma that resemble lemons without the sourness, very clean, easy going and enjoyable.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
12oz bottle from Julio’s.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with small foamy head. Lots of lacing but head is a bit short lived.
Aroma : Biscuity malts with citrusy and floral hops. Slightly herbal as well. Nice malt.
Taste : Malty with citrusy hops. Slightly piny and slightly resinous. Floral as well. Finish malty with floral and citrusy notes. Slightly resinous. Moderate but fairly persistent resinous notes on the finish with nice malt.
Palate : Moderately llively carbonation. Quaffable.
Overall : Really nice beer. More malt forward than most US APA but I like that. I agree with the description, crisp floral hops with a medium body.indeed. Maybe it’s not super fresh so the hops is a bit muted but this doesn’t taste old so I presume it’s just the way they wanted it and it’s pretty nice like that. This could easily become my go-to session beer if only it was available here.
