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.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2009 pale gold appearance. crisp hop flavor, citrus in the flavor with some small malt accents, toffee and some other shit. I love this kind of hoppy pale ale. finishes clean and crisp, bitter but not overdone. kind of one dimensional and a little lighter in the mouth than SNPA but this a good one!

A prickly bitterness is a good way to describe this. I like that sort of finish. Man, Piscator knows his stuff. thanks for sharing this with me. It was great

Gold. Some head. Hoppy aroma. Mild hoppiness with a good sharp taste midway through but doesn’t last.

Bottled sample via presario. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Balanced aromas of citrus and slightly biscuit and caramel malts with some minor floral and spice notes. The light caramel flavors mix well with the mellow hop elements. There’s a bit of prickly bitterness on the finish that cleans up the finish quite nicely. Refreshing, and more complex than a lot of other pale ales.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - AUG 24, 2007
Golden brown body with a heady froth of white bubbles. Aroma is nice. Floral hops softly grace the nose. Taste is recessed for a pale ale, a little too sweet for my liking. Vanilla undermines the palate here. Not a bad beer, but to me, its unbalanced and not drinkable on a repeated basis.

TipsyMcStager (1128) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Nice floral hop aroma. Pours a golden yellow, white head. Satisfyingly hoppy, with a nice bitter finish. A good pale.

6 pack from Vegas. Gold with light foam with hints at clumps. Rich grapefruit hop aroma. Flavour is every bit as good as the scent promised. Very drinkable, very tasty and very hoppy. I notice the vanilla early but the toffee I just get under the hops in the finish.

12oz bottle from Bruno’s in Orange Beach Alabama on vacation - Poured golden with a big white head. Great aromas of floral and pine hops over caramel malts. Flavor starts qut quite hoppy as well. Good pine and slight citrus flavor blends well with the solid malt background. Quite tasty and refreshingly clean on the palate. Nice brew.
