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.

Gold Yellow Color, Big Head, Lots of Thin Lacing. Citrus and Floral Hop Aroma. Semi Sweet, Malty, Bready, Citrus, Hops Bitter. Slightly Over carbonated. Once Fizz Goes away it is much easier to drink. Mellow and enjoyable. Pretty Good, Worth A Try.

Hops are the star of the show here. A very tasty pale ale. Crisp, clean, floral and citrus (tangerine and orange) Light, but assertive. One of my favorite Pale Ales

For a pale ale, this was quite bitter. "Crisply hopped," you might say. I can only barely taste these "nuances of toffee and vanilla," however, the texture could be aptly described as "bright" or, perhaps, clean? Really, thought, this is a good beer. A little bitter, maybe, but nothing to snuff at. If you like bitters--check it out. If you are a traditional pale ale person, you may not like it. Only one way to find out, though...

Aroma: citrus (mango, lychee), pine, resin. Appearance: slightly hazy golden straw color, nice white head. Taste: medium bitterness (resin, grapefruit), citrus notes (lemon grass, grapefruit, mango), quite dry, some herbal notes, refreshing. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, bitter and herbal finish. Overall: Great APA, refreshing taste, nice carbonation, well-balanced.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 12 oz. bottle. I may have rated this beer a bit high. This is my "go-to" beer, or session beer, so I may be biased. Golden color with thin white head. Aroma is mostly Cascade hops - that familiar mild and citrusy scent thats like an old friend. Flavor is mostly the hops, but amazingly very little bitterness. Some honey and fruity sweetness balance it out. Crisp, crisp, crisp! Medium light body with average carbonation. The moderate ABV and the fact that its crisp and refreshing without compromising any flavor or aroma makes for what is probably the most drinkable beer Ive ever had.

Saeglopur (482) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark golden, clear body, with big, frothy, creamy, white head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, grass, candy. Tastes of lemon zest, grapefruit, pine and a tasty, smooth malt backbone of caramel, biscuit, grass and some candy. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grapefruit, pine and some candy. A refreshing, greatly balanced example of a west coast Pale Ale, that has tasty citric fruit and pine notes and also a determined malt backbone. Excellent!

A good pale ale for those who don’t go for the type. A tad dry with vanilla notes and citrus, grapefruity, hops that come through on the front of the tongue, with slight pine notes mingling with the hops at the back of your tongue. A good brew for a hot day, very mildly malty and not at all aggressive.

Had it at the Chicago Craft Beer Festival 6/22/13. Very fruity / potpourri aroma, light head slight watery but a good pale ale.

Thanks to brewblackhole for this one! Pours a wonderful golden yellow color with a white head. AWESOME crisp hop aroma along with caramel and toffee. Great clean hop flavor to it as well. Nice malt backing as well. This would be a perfect brew to sit outside with on a warm summer day!
