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 @ Pismo Beach. Average light beige head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Amber color. Aroma of grapefruit, pine like, citrus, fruit, mild caramel and light toasted malty notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with light sweetness. Lingering bitter dry finish.

12 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Yellowish-orange in color with a creamy white head. Clean hop aroma of grass, grapefruit, and citrus. Clean, satisfying hop flavor. Nothing surprising given the aroma. It’s a pale ale so there’s nothing to get too excited about here, but at 4.8%, and for what it is you really can’t go wrong. One of the best pale ales around in my opinion.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2010 Pours a hazy light amber with a decent head. Citrus hops, honey, and cereal grains in the aroma - nice and mild, but intriguing. Malts are more prevalent in the flavor, with a nice, refreshing hop backbone. Nothing too fantastic, but it’s a nice, entirely satisfying pale. Re-rate: Pale orange. Jane says it’s lovely. Packed with hops for a pale - it moves into malts, but up front, it’s all piney hops. Balances like a seesaw in motion - first one thing, then another.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2011 Pale gold, strong vibrant head. Pale malt, hoppy aromatics. Pale malt forward, earthy hops, so forward with the bready malt, finishes dry.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden body with a finger-width, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma of light and crisp hops with a subtle earthiness along wth a balancing sweet caramel. Flavor is similar and light bodied with a bit of a spicy finish. Crisp and earthy with a nice, lingering finish. Like an IPA in a pale ale body. Overall, a fairly simple pale ale that went down very easily. Decent amount of taste and an enjoyable six pack.

12 oz. bottle at TJ’s. Poured hazy gold. Extremely smooth and light, crisp citrus hoppiness. More characteristic of an extra pale ale. Was expecting a little bit more from these guys but this one is very sessionable at least.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Pours palish orange with a thin white head. Aroma is mild on hops, taste is thinnish bitter. A bit one dimensional to me.

Bottle shared by robert at SL. Drank on April 20th. Light golden yellow color. Ok head. Light aroma of hops... Taste wise this is the best pale ale I have ever tasted... Nice hoppy taste. If some one told me this was an IPA I would of believed them. It had a nice hop bite to it. Light in texture. Really easy to drink. Great beer, that could be drank any where at any time. ****update**** picked up a sixer for my self. This beer is the sh!t... Looks like your typical crappy macro.... but really great taste for a pale ale.
