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.

pours a clear yellow with a medium size white head, and good lacing. smell of hops, floral, a touch of caramel, and just a little pine. taste is crisp and clean, a little sour, hops, a little caramel, and some grain, ends with a little bitterness.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Clear yellow color with a sizable white foam that leaves an impressive lace. Not much carbonation but good looking in totality. Strong citrus aroma of orange and lemon chased by a delicious honey scent. A light but pungent hop finished the complex aroma. The flavor is mostly hoppy with a grass mint combination. The malt takes second fiddle to quenching water and hops in this pale ale. The light watery palate makes for easy drinking. A solid choice but not exactly groundbreaking.
Earlier Rating: 7/8/2008 Total Score: 3
Clear yellow color high white head with some lace. Slight carbonation action in the glass. Lemon and pine aroma that feels like i’m in for a clean beer. Citrus flavor very light. This beer is lacking malts to make it a preferred ale in my book. More similar to a lager than a pale ale. Nothing awful, just nothing special.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2009
22oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of hops, citrus, and grapefruit. Poured golden/amber in color with a small to medium-sized, dense, creamy, off-white head that diminished but lasted as a thin film on top of the beer. Slightly hazy. Sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of toasted malts, slight caramel, hops, slight citrus, slight grapefruit, and some cereal. Light to medium body. Slightly thin, slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Light caramel malt, light hop finish is lightly dry.

Thanks to Todd for sharing this one. Hazy gold pour with fizzy off white head and spotty lace. Piney hops and grainy aroma. Flavor fillers suite with a twist of lemon

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2009
pale golden colored pour with a soft barely tinted off white head. the nose is a bit dirty/earthy... almost british type hoppy aromas mixed with caramel, pale malt, orange, grass and light florals. medium bodied and crisp though the carbonation is low/soft. the flavor is pretty much the same... more earth, spice and a touch of dry piney hops. there is enough dryness and bitterness to keep me interested but nothing else really stands out. 6/3/6/3/15/3.3
