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.

maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2008
Bottled. A golden coloured beer with a thin off white head. Nice hops in the nose. Some good pine notes. Hoppy too in the mouth with some balancing malt notes. Never harsh, and refreshingly tasty. Good late bitterness.

A Mes rate: Bottle at GBBF.
Semi hazy gold with a thin white head. Fruity grapefruit and peach hoppage. Fairly sweet, quite high carbonation but still very drinkable and refreshing.

harrisoni (13251) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle bought at GBBF 08. I love these Californian pale ales, so easy drinking. First beer of the day at 20.50 straight out of the fridge and straight down my throat to quench my throat. Moderate grapefruit hop on aroma, just enough malt to keep it all together and a light stinging lingering grapefruit hop finish. Just a perfect quaffing beer. Wish I had another 4 or 5 in the fridge as this one has seemed to disappear in about 5 minutes. Boy, was I thirsty.

CelticBrew (751) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Compliments of DrBayern (Thanks Matt), The beer poured a light medium golden from 12 oz bottle. Formed a nice bubbley foamy head of foam. Aroma of malts, hops, ocean water and grasses. Flavour was of the same, extremely smooth, yet somewhat bitter. Extremely drinkable beer, sheeeesh, wish I had about 24 more! WOW!

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Medium head on clear, golden body. Just a great floral aroma. Flavor is mild sweetness, a little watery, but with a moderate amount of citric bitterness. Left no lacing on the glass. Nice to find a sub 5% pale ale.
