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.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Bottle poured a dark amber with a good head and sticky lacing. Good hopy, citrus aroma. Body is a bit watery, with a weak hops and citrus flavor. Not bad. Would make a good, easy drinking everyday beer.

sloth (2483) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Small offwhite head, short lived with scattered lacing. Good clarity, light copper color. Light hop and malt nose, citrus, light pine and a touch earthy with some grainy malt notes. Body is med/light. Citrusy hop flavors, lightly grainy and doughy malts are seemingly well balanced. Finish is fairly dry. A nice APA.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Barely average IPA, pour was nice golden amber color. Slight off hop presence in the aroma, with more malt than anticipated. Well balanced, but just doesnt really click with the buds.

Bottled. Beer of the month. Solid Pale ale. Nice west coast hop bite. Good balance.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Very pleasant APA with pine and grapefruit hoppiness I like so much, but not overpowering the slightly sweet malt base of caramel and toffee. Excellent beer.

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.

3daddict (139) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Excellent example of the style. I typically finish a beer as I’m writing the review and it’s 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.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUL 23, 2005
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.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 14, 2005
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.
