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.

Not sure what was going on here. Draught from brou lane. Poured an attractive gold. Not much aroma. Mild hops I guess. Strangely astringent taste. . Neh.

Draft at Brouwerij Lane, Fresh Pine and citrus hop aroma. Forward pine hops with some citrus on the palate, clean and crisp , nice dry finish, a well executed pale ale, easy drinking.

The pour is a clear, orangey, golden color with a fairly small, white, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing. The nose is very floral, some resins, orangey citrus, and some biscuits. The flavor is decidedly more passive with more biscuity notes, the citrus becoming almost limey, and slight resins. The palate is lively, light to medium, lightly crisp, and drying slightly. The finish carries a moderate bitterness, a limey citrus, and biscuits still. A fairly easy drinking, hop forward, session pale. The hop notes were pleasant but simple and the biscuit notes were a bit too overwhelming. Not bad for a <5% pale but fairly pedestrian.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Bottle 3 months old. Clear gold color with soft lasting head and lace . Vibrant floral and citrus greats the nose with a surprising light anise, menthe, or pine aroma. Flavor is cool citrus element, clean grain and light tropical hops. Feel fresh, lively, and full. Really nice. Could drink these forever. Just what I want a place to be.

Hops are the star of the show here. A very tasty pale ale. Crisp, clean, floral and citrus (tangerine and orange) Light, but assertive. One of my favorite Pale Ales

hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Draught pours a cloudy orange brown with white head. Floral, hay and citrus aromas are present. Taste is a bit underwhelming, with no real flavor outstanding. An ok beer, but not the best.

Anova167 (330) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Solid pale ale. Nice hoppy aroma. Clear gold/brass in the glass with good lacing. Taste is pretty mild and maltier than the aroma indicates. Not bad but not exceptional.

thome50 (1285) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle from anywhere on the Central Coast. Fresh. Pours a golden yellow/orange. Rad head retention. Aroma is hoppy and fresh grass but that could be because it is a nice winter/spring (no difference in California) day. Taste, sessionable beyond belief. If you have a friend who wants an alternative to BMC, this is it. Maybe too favor forward for them but they will warm up. Overall, nice when I’m mowing the lawn, if I had one.
