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.

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 (3990) - 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 (7911) - 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.

Russo (1937) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2009
Drank at Brasil Brau 2009 on Hops USA booth. Golden color almost amber with a nice and dense foam. Aroma is hop and floral notes as well. Flavor is bitter and mouthfeel keep for long time his bitterness. Good stuff.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 26, 2009
Bottle (in NZ). Pours a deep gold with a filmy white head. Sweet hoppy aroma with elderflower and caramal. The palate is a bit soapy, the malt is caramal flavoured with some citrus from the hops. The finish has some moderate bitterness, but also a touch tangy. While at first I thought it was just "nice", it really grew on me.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 24, 2009
Big hop aroma, hint of honey at back. Bright orange in colour with thick firm white head, Soapy flavour, which is a shame

nbutler11 (1267) - Rota, SPAIN - JUN 18, 2009
On tap at Papago. Pours a golden with an off-white head. Smells mildly of citrus and hops. Tastes just as mild with added notes of caramel and cream. Fair, at best.

mrhoppy (1289) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Very good. Comparable to Sierra Nevada in quality but lighter and sweeter. Creamy and good all around. Grassy finish. I don’t think that I would crave this beer later on.
