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.

Dansrc51 (46) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Aroma: Nice mellow hop resin. Little pine and floral Appearance: dark for a pale, but only a little. Golden in color Taste:citrus presence with a light bitter finish. On the dry side but not overtly and well within style. Very good Palate: very nice mouthfeel and presence. Hops add character without over loading it. Perhaps a little heavy for a summer session, but very quaffable. Overall: there are few beers I buy repeatedly these days as there is just so many new styles and offerings to try. This has become a solid go to for me when I just want a beer I can drink and enjoy. Never disappointed and on sale for less the $8. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ianwelby (705) - SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Lively, clear golden beer with a white bubbly head. Strong, floral citrus aroma. Flavour is surprisingly mellow. Lemony hop, somewhat dry, a bit of a resinous hint to it and this gives it a slightly tangy aftertaste which lingers for a fair while.

Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear gold. Thick, bubbly, lasting, white head. Lovely, peach and orange hop to this. A little bit grassy. Some flora. Some pine needle. Taste is moderately bitter, with a light, grainy sweetness. Crisp, clean palate, that has a light dryness. Finishes long, light bitter. Hugely quaffable.
