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.

Draught. Clear light orange color with white head that left a thin lace. Attractive citrusy hop nose. Delicious malty caramel flavor with buttery toffee finish. This pale ale stands out. Very tasty.

On tap @ Firestone Walker poured a clear gold with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and pine. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of carmel, lemon and a hint of orange with a lingering moderately bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2012 Pours a nice copper color with a good white head. A sweet fruity hoppy scent and taste that is citrusy, sweet and damn good.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Beer is a clear, medium orange with a small, frothy, white head that vaporizes immediately. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate notes of lemon, flowers and iced tea, trace of resin/pine. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with a longer than average, lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. I have really enjoyed the delicate, refreshing notes in this beer. It’s highly drinkable, yet still reasonably complex.

This is a solid pale ale. Medium head and a nice hoppy aroma even if its a little thin on body.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle from State Line. Dark straw pour with 1-finger white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citrus, some caramel malts, and tropical fruit. Tastes of caramel malt and fruit up front, with mid-palate hops and citrus, all very well balanced. I could see this becoming a summer session beer for me.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Had on tap in California. Nothing really special about this beer. Thought the Double Barrell really made this one seem week and with little taste.

oldrtybastrd (3225) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Pours a medium golden yellow with a small white head. Aromas of hops, citrus, and malts. Flavors of hops and grains, kinda thin. Nice clean crisp finish.

A good session beer, not too heavy, the hops are not over powering, good color and a nice aroma, finishes nicely.
