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.

MetalNHopHead (1344) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Like many of Firestone Walker’s beautifully hoppy beers, Pale 31 gives a nod to the English style. One place it can be seen is with this beer’s use of Maris Otter, which gives a biscuit-like backbone to this beer’s balance. Pale 31 pours a golden shade. Floral aromatics and flavors of lemongrass, grapefruit zest, mango, orange, and black pepper. Bright and medium-bodied, this beer is easy to put away. Definitely a solid example of what Firestone Walker is all about.

Super smooth and full of flavor. A bit too golden in color but it's the taste that matters. Floral finish helps make this a bit more muted than other pale ales ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PabloZab (1108) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Butelka 355ml (23.12.2016). Piwo klarowne o złocistej barwie. Piana biała z delikatnym odcieniem szarości, średnio obfita, niezbyt trwała ale za to świetnie krążkuje na ściankach szkła. W aromacie słodkie nuty owoców tropikalnych, cytrusów i delikatna nuta multiwitaminy. Całość jest dość intensywna, rześka. Goryczka na średnim poziomie ma charakter cytrusowy z wyraźnym słodkim posmakiem owoców tropikalnych i multiwitaminy, krótka w czasie, niezalegająca, za to ściągająca, mocno pobudza ślinianki do pracy aż chce się wziąć kolejny łyk. Piwo ma zdecydowanie wytrawny charakter co podbija odczucie gorycki, jest bardzo lekkie w odczuciu ale wyraźne nasycenie podbija nieco ciało, bardzo pijalne i świetnie orzeźwiające. I choć daje się wyczuć malutką pustkę w tle to nie jest to jakimś problemem, wszak piwo jest typowo sesyjne, świetne na gorący, letni dzień.

mrjez (441) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAY 26, 2016
Can. Pours a clear orange-gold, finger of bubbly white foam, lasts a little while, lots of carbonation. A sweet tangerine aroma, along with orange and bergamot, light pine. Flavour is more biscuity, honey sweetness mixed with the citrus. Nice full flavour, decent body with mild clean bitterness. Easy to down, really refreshing.

Pale amber with soda-like head taht dissipates very quickly. All tropical pine in aroma. Lightly sweet biscuit malts with smattering of citrus/pine and floral in taste. Clean and refreshing mouthfeel with small bitterness. Nice.

Good beer the aroma was sweet not very bitter. Appearance was golden and clear. I was not a fan of the after taste as it was a little more bitter than I expected. Overall good beer. Would recommend for others to drink.
