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.

Compliments of uncle Steve. pours a nice dark yellow, clear and clean. Head laces to sides nicely. Even with a cold, the hoppy aroma comes through nicely. Nice light hop flavor that is not overdone. Mouthfeel is good but not great. Bittering on backside is light.

I liked this a lot! Nice floral nose at pouring. Poured a butterscotch color with head that disipated to a nice lacing around edge. Great mouthfeel with JUST the right amount of hops. Nice bittering at the end. Sure would love to find this in NC regularly! Thanks to the Magic of DrBayern and his Magic Bus trip to Beantown!

Poured into a shaker. Golden blonde color with off white head. Aroma is citrus and resinous hop notes. Flavor is bready malt with a good dose of grapefruit hop flavor. Palate is medium bodied and mildly astringent. Overall a very good pale ale.

cgreb (399) - Marburg, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2012
bottle - clear golden beer with a white head with tons of american hops aroma! Very nice! Flavour is malty what is balanced by a decent bitterness. But bitterness is not extreme. Medium carbonation.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - SEP 8, 2006
12oz bottle poured a clear pale gold color with a tiny white head. The aroma is light citrus hops and some small amounts of caramel. The taste is nice and smooth not leaning too much to the hops with a nice balance. A good pale that is clean, but it might benefit to add more hops.
