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.

Bomber served in an English pint. Pale yellow-orange color, a touch hazy, and a fluffy white head that disappears quickly. Sweet candy aroma of toffee and pound cake. Mild carbonation, light body. Crisp brew, yet plenty of hops. Mildly bitter finish. Nice APA.

Pours a deep gold with a hint of haze. Nose is cut grass, orange zest, honey. Taste is hefty on the malt backbone, rather sweet for a pale ale, nice hop bitterness to combat the sweetness, herbal hop flavors, finishes with a hint of toffee and bitter floral taste.

Clear orange-amber color, small white head. Very citrus-juicy aroma, also some bread. Citrusy, pale malty flavor. Balanced and sweetish pale ale.

Pretty nice aroma of grain, oranges, and rose hips. Clear amber, thin head, some lacing. Rose hip flavor, with a slight maltiness. A bit of grapefuit peel in the finish. Uncomplex, sessionable. Nicely done and keeps well. Underrated and a good find.

12oz bottle. clear murky yellow pour with a thin white head. muted citrus hop aroma. light to medium tingly texture is the first thing I notice. taste is sharp grapefruit and grass with a subtle bitter finish that lasts. kind of a smack in the face - but in a good way I think.

12 oz. Creamy lemon, honey and resin aroma. Taste is resin, lemon and caramel grain. Light body is soft and mostly smooth.

clear gold... like macro clear, thin white head, delicate yet non-discript hop nose, cascadey, flavor is pretty ’meh’, not much going on here, slightly bitter and quite refreshing, I’m not getting any bold hop flavors and am certainly not getting that toffee or any sort of malt complexity, finishes dry, pretty average pale ale.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, deep gold with a small, foamy, white head. This one has poor head retention, but decent lacing. Aroma: Floral and pine hops are very vibrant and forward. Light caramel and toasted malt notes. Just a bit of grapefruit too. Taste: The grapefruit takes a bigger part of the stage on the tongue. Light biscuit notes, light grass, and a bit of dust round out the taste. Lighter on the tongue than I was expecting based on the aroma, but still quite good. Palate: Medium carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short finish. The finish has just a bit of bitterness on the very back of the tongue. Light and delicate on the tongue. Overall: A light, well made beer that is worth trying and constructed well enough to enjoy again and again. Finally, a good session beer! Rebuy: Definitely. Give this one a go if you get the chance.

Lubiere (11225) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2009
A golden blonde ale with a thin white head. Pungeant floral c-hops, grapefruit, biscuitty. In mouth, a light pale ale with light resinous, rather weak in mouth. On tap at brewpub, August 16 2009.
Earlier Rating: 12/12/2004 Total Score: 4
Draft. Golden ale with an intense floral aroma, very resinous. Very hoppy in mouth, due to lower gravity and high hops (Brewer sitting next to me). Excellent balance. Im trying to imagine what the IPA is like.(June 2004).
