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.

6 pack from Vegas. Gold with light foam with hints at clumps. Rich grapefruit hop aroma. Flavour is every bit as good as the scent promised. Very drinkable, very tasty and very hoppy. I notice the vanilla early but the toffee I just get under the hops in the finish.

12oz bottle from Bruno’s in Orange Beach Alabama on vacation - Poured golden with a big white head. Great aromas of floral and pine hops over caramel malts. Flavor starts qut quite hoppy as well. Good pine and slight citrus flavor blends well with the solid malt background. Quite tasty and refreshingly clean on the palate. Nice brew.

Thanks to brewblackhole for this one! Pours a wonderful golden yellow color with a white head. AWESOME crisp hop aroma along with caramel and toffee. Great clean hop flavor to it as well. Nice malt backing as well. This would be a perfect brew to sit outside with on a warm summer day!

Sweet orange and spicy hop on the nose. Moderate hop and alcohol flavor in the glass. I thought it was a solid APA.

Haven’t had a lot of Pale Ale’s yet, but I would have to put this one at the top of my list so far. Really enjoy the flavoring, but beyond that there’s something I can’t put my finger on. I always have a good time when drinking this beer.

Decent, light bodied pale ale. Nice hoppy aroma, but lacking an assertive taste as the description says. On the good side, low carbonation and light palate make this extremely drinkable and thirst quenching.

IndianaRed (2591) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle pours a nearly clear light amber. Full sandy colored head with coarse blocky lacing. Aroma is some light pale malts and a little citrusy hops. Flavor is similar, slightly sweet and cerealish. A bit under hopped for a Pale but easy drinking all around. Palate is a bit thin and carbonation was quite soft.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 9, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 Initial aromas on pour from bottle are dominated by hops - floral with a hint of pine. Pours golden and clear with a moderate white head that quickly dissipates. Taste is a bit citrus with undertones of vanilla and barely sweet toffee. Bitterness is present but restrained. Finish is clean and slightly astringent. This is like Bass Ale all grown up (and without the green apple flavor). Not a world-class pale ale, but agreeably drinkable.

JohnnyJ (4546) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet caramel malt, and crisp hops. Flavors of grapefruit, caramel, citrus, bread, and hops. A very nice session ale.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Poured into a pint glass with a golden colour and a medium fizzy white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops with malts lingering in the background. Initial taste of crisp grapefruit and citrus hops and medium malts. Good balance with the active carbonation. Decent head retention. Finishing with a bitter hops that linger on the palate, finishing dry. Very impressed wit this american pale ale.
