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.

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.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - MAR 23, 2006
had this on the beach in PB. surprised by the golden color that it had as much hoppy character. sligt citrus nose carries through to the palate with more fresh hops. balanced well. better then i thought it would be. served a little too warm in a plastic cup that looked like glass??

One of my favorite pale ales. Light hoppiness gives it just enough chacter for a good pale ale.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2006
This aroma offers the nose a smell of hops, peaches, grapefruit, and molasses. It is a golden solution with very little head offered. This thin bitter sour beer produces a taste of hops and grapefruit that fades leaving a mild hint of molasses lingering on the tongue.

chargerfanjess (124) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 27, 2006
From a 12 oz. brown bottle Made a decent appearance, poured a clear golden hued copper with a foamy white head that reduced to a thin lacing. Had a grassy/herbal hop and bready malt aroma with a musty yeastiness and a little roasted barley. Moderate carbonation and a slick, coarse medium bodied mouth feel, moderate drinkability. Had a crackerish malty and herbal hop taste, a little buttery, traces of a salty yeastiness and a dry, coarse, bitter hop finish.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2006
Pours a rich golden color with a ncie fluffy head. Fresh citrus aroma with some orange marmalade. Assertive hop flavor is characterized bystrong lemon/lime flavor but balanced by a sweet malt component. Finish dry and crisp. Not bad.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 3, 2006 The beer is a gold color and only has a wispy, pale draught head. This beer has an incredible, fresh, hop aroma. I get notes of apricots, some peach, and of course some of the typical citrus notes. The aroma is just quite striking, and I really like the mix of fruit character that the hops evoke here. The taste is pretty light and refreshing and has a light sweetness to it that really helps to accentuate the fruity flavors from the hops. The hop character is definitely dominated by a fresh fruity character that is most evocative of peaches and apricots. This is really quite nice.
