COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale 31 is an ode to our home state of Californiaóthe 31st to be named in fact. Beer may not be associated with terroir the way wine is, but we believe that where weíre 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.

Seeing as menís health, or whatever menís magazine rated this in the top 25 beers, I had to give it a whirl. Pours out medium shade of gold with a thin fading white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops with slight malt, nothing overpowering. Taste is well balanced and smooth. Citrus/pine hops with a slight malt in the background. Solid beer, I would drink this again.

This beer is awesome when itís really cold. Itís very hoppy, and has a distinct flavor reminiscent of Sweetwater 420 but a little sharper.

bottle. Pours a clear gold with a tall, frothy white head. The aroma is assertive with pine, grapefruit, leaves, and a bouquet of citrus. The hops are tamer in the flavor than in the aroma, but still very present. This pale is nicely tart throughout with an appropriate level of sweetness. The finish is lemony with suggestions of dough. Iíd say this is quite similar to Sierra Nevadaís classic take on this style, but with its own subtle nuances.

On tap at Toronado. Disarmingly clear yellow-orange color, light citrus aroma with some skunk. Citrus taste, some metallic elements, caramel, bready. OK.

(Bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Fresh aroma of pineapple, citrus, and pine. Flavor of malt, citrus hops, and a hint of nuts in the finish.

The Firestone Pale Ale has a very delinquent appearance. The smell has hints of beer and foam(head) to it. The taste was very delicate but intrusive at the same time, very confusing. Drinkability was top notch. i popped the top with almost no effort or resistance. Very good beer IMO.

Zoob (85) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Aroma= Medium hops supported by light malt Apperence = Bright yellow Flavor = Nice bitterness all the way through. Although not overly malty the beer is quite refreshing and for the most part in balance Palate = medium to med light, good carbination Over all = a very nice Pale in American style. If there is a flaw malt bill could be low but it is a really tasty beer and not hopped to IPA

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2009 This is my first ale from Firestone. The APA was very good. The head was small and no lacing. The straw color was pleasing . The aroma of grapefruit was muted by the vanilla nd toffee. the well balanced APA was well worth it. I would try from the tap. I will also look for more Firestone products. I purchased a 6-pack on fatherís day 2009. It was great with steamed crabs.
