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.

Not much bite to it; a pale ale that would go well on a warm evening. Nothing special, but certainly drinkable.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2009
Pours translucent light amber to orange, with thin white head. Nose is suggesting orange candy to me, with some ripe fresh orange juicy notes - both natural citrus and candied orange. Palate has a nice balance of malt with hops, but it is rather light bodied and weak in flavor. Finish is light as well. Decent drinkability but nothing to be excited about.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
12 oz bottle from Beverages4less. pours a translucent 18k gold color with a medium white head that has good lacing. The The aroma is light with sweet malts and some citrus. The flavor has a crisp biter hop first impression that gives way to sweet bready malts. The finish is short and dry with a bit of dust. The mouthfeel is full and malty. Overall: A very sessionable ale.

joeneugs (4205) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
Pours a clear yellow gold color with a small off white dissapearing head. Hoppy aroma of grass, dust, and grapefruit. The flavor is mild hoppy with grapefruit, lemon peel and a hint of maltiness in the background. It seems like its on the verge of being excellent, but falls just short. A pretty good example of the style. Its just not very bold. The watery body doesn’t help.

Pale golden pour with a finger thick white head. Nose and flavor are slightly hopped with some earthy influence. A bit of grain in the finish.

Bottle shared by Frankenstein, pours macro pale gold with a tight white head. The nose is floral hoppy as is the flavor. A bit of an earthy finish.
