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.

Golden with a small white head. Hoppy aroma of pine, apricot and grapefruit. Dry and bitter with lots of hop flavour

Thanks to Todd for sharing this one. Hazy gold pour with fizzy off white head and spotty lace. Piney hops and grainy aroma. Flavor fillers suite with a twist of lemon

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2009
pale golden colored pour with a soft barely tinted off white head. the nose is a bit dirty/earthy... almost british type hoppy aromas mixed with caramel, pale malt, orange, grass and light florals. medium bodied and crisp though the carbonation is low/soft. the flavor is pretty much the same... more earth, spice and a touch of dry piney hops. there is enough dryness and bitterness to keep me interested but nothing else really stands out. 6/3/6/3/15/3.3

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Light golden amber with flufy head. Floral, lightly citrus hop aroma with malt base buried in there somewhere. Fluffy carbonation. Floral hop is not there as much in the flavor. Lightly citrus and herby/woodsy hop flavor, not too much bite. Smooth malt enough to balance the hops, not too strong on either end. Lght finish, hop btteeness on tongue.

Tap at the brewery. Light gold pour with a thick white head. Floral grassy hop aroma. Crisp malt with a nicely balanced hop bitterness. Really nice and fresh.

FrostedMug (8) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2009 does not count
It is overly carbonated. The taste is watery. It smells okay - like Cascade hops.

HungTuna (10) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Displays some honey and vanilla upfront with a light trail of tangy orange and pungent earth. Fades too quickly with a watered finale.

Butters (3960) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle shared with the guys at the Barrios’ 500th Swallow Tasting. Clear golden pour with some whitish head. Nose Flavor of fresh citrus and floral hops, and almost a little sweetness to balance. Fairly crisp and refreshing. Pretty decent pale ale.

BMan1113VR (7902) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 5, 2009
5 gallon keg from BevMo for my birthday. Pours with a clear golden body with a frothy white head that leaves fairly good lace. Aroma is hoppy with herbal and pineapple notes, some sweetness that is akin to orange icing, and a bit of grassy hay. Taste is citrus hops up front with caramel and quite a bit of husky, toasted grain. Light carbonation, low in residual sugars and somewhat dryish. Good pale ale.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Pours an off-white head with legs and a clear, golden body. Floral hop aroma. Flavor is floral and spice hops. Finish is not overly bitter.
