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.

A nice California beer. Many people had told me about this beer and I was pleased to get it. I found the taste easy light and easy to enjoy. Looks very average while your pour but will surpise you.

Excellent example of the style. I typically finish a beer as Iím writing the review and itís already gone! Pours a rich clear amber color. Nice vanilla aroma nestled within the hops. Wonderful mouthfeel with the vanilla malt backed up nicely by a crisp hop bite. Goes down exceedingly smooth and quick. Thanks to TMR Bac for the sample!

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Poured an effervescent golden with a fizzy/frothy off-white head. Bitter citrusy hops, with a touch of floor cleaner character. Tastes of mild citrus with a small hop kick, slight sweet smoothness. Rather smooth body... not as much presence as I would like. Easy drinking but bland.

Golden amber color with a small white head. Aroma of orange-pineapple. Flavor is lightly sweet with some spicy citrus bitterness, finishing kinda dry and orange rind bitter. A nice tangy APA.

Quite a surprisingly nice beer. Medium golden copper with a medium head. Pleasant hops and malt aromatics with good hops bitterness with character, medium malt flavors, and a bit of earthiness from the oak barrel fermentation.

oooo-eeeee.......das a miiighty fine brew! Fragrant fresh hop nose, nice head that dissipates somewhat. verrry very drinkable. Friendly beer. Looks great in my goblet: in the wide part a tarnished gold, and in the thin part a nice yellow gold. Good mouth and a flavor that matches the aroma. Satisfying, yet alluring. Maybe a hair thiner than Sierra Nevada, but better flavor. Got this bottle in a beer a the month. Wish we could get it in La Crosse.

Bottle shared with GregClow, tupalev and jerc. Pours a mildly sparkling amber with an average fizzy white head. It has a strong herbal/floral hops aroma -- itís actually deceiving as the taste isnít as hoppy as the aroma would lead you to believe. Flavourís still nice and hoppy but a bit too subtle, itís a little lacking. Overall itís a nice, enjoyable Pale Ale.

Bottle shared with blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of blankboy. Light gold-amber colour with a strong & pleasant herbal tea aroma. Flavour is quite fruity, with more tea notes and a citric finish. Bidy is thin, but itís OK otherwise.

Gorbalev (2923) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2005
Bottle, via HTH and Blankboy at Gregís. Herbally hopped up aroma which was really nice and interesting. No head, slightly dark yellow pour. Taste is bitter but also extremely watery. There is a really nice original aroma and taste here, but there is not much else at all to go with it. Still, this would be tasty on a hot summer day. Decent.

Bottle. Thanks for Sharing HTH via Blankboy. Golden yellow, moderate fluffy white head. Aroma starts with floral hops and finishes herbally with notes of dried tea. Flavour is a touch lighter than anticipated. Not much here besides some mild bitterness. Thin bodied. Booooring.
