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.

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.

A golden blonde ale with a thin white head. Pungeant floral c-hops, grapefruit, biscuitty. In mouth, a light pale ale with light resinous, rather weak in mouth. On tap at brewpub, August 16 2009.

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).

Benzai (11359) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Sampled at CBC 2013. Clear yellow color, small white to off-white virtually non lacing, mostly diminishing head. Smell lightly malts, lightly bitter, lightly hops. Tastes about the same. No flaws, but a bit boring although that may be caused by the amount of big beers available at the festival. Tastes also a bit thin, but that could very well have the same reason. Would like to try it again sometime on a hot summer day.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Corks & Kegs in Richmond, VA. Pours a slightly hazy peach color with a small head, low head retention and moderate lacing. Citrus and floral hop aroma with some apple-like fruity notes. Taste is sweet malts with leafy hop notes. Medium bodied.

BeerandBlues2 (11054) - San Diego, California, 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.

courtesy of Jürg Kohler - light blond-orange beer with a poor foam left; pineapple and grapefruity hoppiness; medium-bodied, decently tasty and quite bitter; moderate carbonation; pretty dry and long fruity hoppy reminiscence of bitter oranges and grapefruit
