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.

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

DocLock (7824) - 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.

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.

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.

Madpoet (4) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2006 does not count
A good session beer, not too heavy, the hops are not over powering, good color and a nice aroma, finishes nicely.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle courtesy of HogtownHarry! Thank you! Pale yellow pour with medium white froth fading to a thin white ring. Good malted base aroma with mild pine hops and a boost of sugars. Decent hoppy flavour profile with sugared malt sweetness to balance. SLightly thin and watery finish. But would be very good for sessions. Glad I got to try it. Thanks Harry!

mds (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a small white head. Yeasty orange hops in the aroma and touch of sweetness. Light, fruity, yeasty hop flavour and some cereal and metal notes. A simple and plain APA. Good.

IrishBoy (3821) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 27, 2006
Amber gold with a small white head.Very nice hop aroma with a lemony touch. Very nice bitter lemon taste, interesting contrast between the sour and bitterness, utilizing two out of the fours types of taste buds. I think this one has been underrated; it is better much better than the other Firestones I’ve tried.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2006
12oz bottle: Mostly clear amber body with a small white head that is somewhat lasting. The aroma is malty, sweet, light caramel, and has some light citrus hop notes. Taste is sweet malt up front, a bit of caramel, and then fresh, grassy hops, sugary grains, bitter caramel, cereal, and lemon. Light-medium bodied, medium carbonated, finishes with mild grassy hops.
