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.

phaleslu (9305) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Cask at iTap Soulard served in a pint glass. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with a finger of uneven eggshell head and lace. Aroma of fresh herbal hops, citrus, sweet malts, and a bit of pine. Flavor of herbal hops, sweet and pale malts, straw, pine, grains, and crackers. Light body with soft carbonation and a dry, quick mouthfeel. Finishes fast and dry for sure. Nice overall.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 8, 2011
Bottled 355ml. It pours a clear golden beer with a creamy off white head. Deeply inviting hop accented nose with grapefruit, sweat, vanilla, mango, devonshire cream, caramel, quince, a lot of pine accompanied by some earthy components showing up. Medium bodied. Good head retention. Flawless malt back. Leafy. Beautiful lacework. Lovely bitterness. Perfectly balanced. I love the hop profile. Dry bitter finish which is reminiscent of quince, pine, some earthy hops and whipped cream. Excellent.
