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.

craighill (35) - GERMANY - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle from supermarket in Germany. Golden colour, clear with moderate white dense head. Strong hop aroma mixes both herbal/spicy notes with fruit, particularly mangoes. Taste is dominated by hop crunchy hop bitterness, but there is still a perceivable bready maltiness. Dry and long finish with hop citrus flavours. Great beer, but a bit more malt balance would improve the drinkability for me.

Clear dark yellow, light bronw lacing lasting foam head. Strong hoppy aroma, some flowers there. Strong bitter taste, lasting quite long. (Houston 201501)

Fisler (120) - GERMANY - JAN 30, 2015
Wirklich herrlich fruchtige Note, in der Nase Papaya, Mango, Ananas. Im Trunk setzen sich die Aromen fort, sehr weich aufeinander abgestimmt, leichte Süße. Im Abgang dann herb, bitter, aber nicht zu krass. Sehr rundes Ale, sehr sorgfältig abgestimmt. Einfach lecker!

WABeerFiend (274) - - JAN 16, 2015
Bottled on 03.11.14. Poured into a tumbler on 05.13.14. A: See through yellow with a light head, which recedes quickly. S: Flower. Some pine and grapefruit. T: Pine, grapefruit dominate. Honey, flower are subtle. M: Crisp. Has perfect carbonation. O: This was somewhat hop forward. It was nicely balanced, but I guess that I expected that the hops would be stronger.

alkolas510 (809) - Vänersborg, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2015
Guldig klar med litet vit skum. Mycket citrus humle i både doft och smak. Väldigt fyllig trots låg% med bra beska

rosenbergh (7864) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 09/23/14. From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. The aroma is sweet fruitiness, citric notes and toffee accomplished with mild bitterness and maltiness. The flavour is fruity hops, mild bitterness, sweetness and malt. Easy but super drinkable.

muffel (144) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle 355ml. Pours a pale golden color with a small white head that disappears quickly. Smelly quite fruity and sweet. Floral hop aroma and a long bitter aftertaste. Medium body and low carbonation. Not my favorite style of beer, but this is nice nevertheless.
