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.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Just a basic pale - they do a good job on it but its pretty run of the mill. Good hop flavor, not sweet, and not at all cloudy. A little weak on the ABV so that takes away points, otherwise a solid choice.
