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.

Mild Citrus aroma. Clear light amber color. Grapefruit taste worth English yeast character. The perfect Pale ale palate. Dry finish.

aleigator (92) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from "Gendarmenmarkt"-Weihnachtsmarkt. Bright yellow colour with a thin head which vanished fast. At first there was nearly no aroma at all, but giving the beer a little more time to warm up it unfolded some really pleasant citrus and light orange smell. The overall taste is pretty balanced and clean, the hop doesn’t linger to long and leaves me with a refreshed but not overwhelming intensive experience.

Slight twang to it. Medium body with floral notes. Fairly drinkable. Good beer overall.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottled 15NOV12 Golden with a loose quilt of light cream foam. Smells of grapefruit, grass, light caramel malts, some sweet malts - a touch of lactose. Flavor is bready, bitter (lightly), hints of grapefruit pith, some pine and a touch of woody malts. Light body with low carb and a semi dry finish. Decent beer, nothing special.

AWISLguy (1048) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle from Brook Falls Discount. Pours an orangey copper with a bit of a white head. Not much lace. Aroma has citrus and pine, pleasantly hoppy/grassy, with some light caramel. Taste is of lightly sweet biscuity malts, some lemon and some spicy pine. Light to medium bodied and lowly carbonated. Nice and refreshing. A solid APA.
