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.

Chadski4 (114) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Light gold (borderline lager) look with piney aromas with and a hint of lemon zest. Balanced toasted malts with citrus hop flavors up front but which seem to completely disappear before hitting the back of the mouth. Lacks character. Will not repeat.

teromous (55) - - SEP 19, 2014
Appearance: Brilliant sparkling transparent light golden body with a fluffy white head. Good lacing. Aroma: Light fruity aroma, like tangerine, mango, and peach. Taste: Very light flavors. Low bitterness, very little malt character, and a hint of pine. Palate: It has a great palate, being both refreshing and containing just the right amount of bitterness to cleanse the palate. Light bodied. Overall: It is a very good light feeling American Pale Ale. It edges right on the lower side of everything, from bitterness to aroma and flavor. It is would be a good beer to drink at a picnic or an early morning to afternoon event which serves beer. I recommend trying it if you like pale ales but don’t want a lot of bitterness.

ComradeK (1029) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a clear deep gold, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Floral, orange zest and spice hops mix with caramel and white toast malt to make up the aroma. Lime and orange rind hops up front lead into subtly sweet caramel malt in the mid-palate. Lemon curd hops come in at the finish, and there is a slight floral aftertaste. This is a very well-balanced APA, with good, interesting hops flavours sitting against a nicely rounded malt body.

(Bottle). Aroma of sweet caramel, musty over ripe tropical fruits, figs and raisins. Taste of over ripe tropical fruit, caramel malt and hops. The taste is a bit watery and unfinished.

Pours a clear yellow with soapy 1 finger head. Slightly skunky aroma with hints of citrus, pine, and light sweetness. Flavor matches aroma.

rotaman14 (41) - Falkensee, Brandenburg, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Orangene Farbe, weiße Schaumkrone. Zitrus-, und vor allem Orangenaromen. Im Geschmack dominiert bittere Orange, trotzdem überraschend viel Malzgeschmack für ein Pale Ale. Kann ich weiterempfehlen.
