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.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Just a basic pale - they do a good job on it but its pretty run of the mill. Good hop flavor, not sweet, and not at all cloudy. A little weak on the ABV so that takes away points, otherwise a solid choice.

spikester (603) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2009
This is an APA that won’t knock you’re socks off. It is just about perfect for the style however. So if you are looking for the next bigger, hoppier APA this ain’t it. It is just a well executed APA with no bad character whatsoever. Pours a light amber with a good-sized white head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma is citrus floral hops. Taste is mildly bitter citrus hops with an ideal amount of sweet malt. The perfect session APA for me. The problem is that it is hard to find in Oregon. I bought the last bottle at the store today. Just bought another bomber. As good as the first. Exceptional APA. Buy some now. Especially at the low 4.8% abv. Great session beer.

seanbhudson (57) - , California, USA - FEB 13, 2009
APPEARANCE: Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. There is a small amount of lacing. SMELL: Pleasant aroma of orange, apricots and sweet dough. Also some pine. TASTE: Smooth slightly sweet with nice balance of citrusy hops. Finishes with a little grassy bitterness. MOUTHFEEL Medium body with slight syrupy texture. Moderate carbonation. Finishes a bit dry. DRINKABILITY: Very easy drinking beer. Not too sweet and not to bitter. Nothing exciting but a great session beer. NOTES: BBCSD-0812-Dan
