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.

Earlier Rating: 12/12/2004 Total Score: 4
Draft. Golden ale with an intense floral aroma, very resinous. Very hoppy in mouth, due to lower gravity and high hops (Brewer sitting next to me). Excellent balance. Im trying to imagine what the IPA is like.(June 2004).

On tap @ Firestone Walker poured a clear gold with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and pine. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of carmel, lemon and a hint of orange with a lingering moderately bitter finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9984) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Pours golden honey to light copper with a thin off-white head that clings to the glass edge leaving a fair film of lacing. Fragrant floral hop aroma with a crisp pine nose, hints of honey and citrus on the end. Floral hoppy flavor with a mildly tart beginning and a mild citrus end. Palate is extremely refreshing and mild-bodied and a little clean water feel.

660ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Zesty lemon spice, lemongrass aroma. Thin palate, perfumed soap and floor cleaner lemon and sweetness. Works in the aroma, but is boring after that.

Gold pour. Nice hops up front in the nose! Some unripe stone fruit hidden in the background and light cereal notes. Flavor is a nice mix of caramel malt flavors and hops. FW makes damn good stuff!
