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.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt, bottled on 02/20/13
Blond color. The aroma is immediately resiny, piney, and then fruity. The mouthfeel is weak and very dry; light malt flavor, with strong hopping, quite resiny, and a touch of orange peel, chamomile, lime; if fresher, it could be something.
