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.

Saeglopur (449) - 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!

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.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Bottle. Pours clear gold in color, thin white head. Great pale ale aroma, nice citrus hop aroma. Taste has some of those same hops but also some sweetness comes across, caramel and vanilla. Nice and balanced, feels fairly light. Finishes nice and clean. I can’t believe I waited this long to try this, might be a new regular for me.

Tasted at Chicago Craft Beer Festival. Clear golden color with a white head faint floral aroma. Citrus taste with a bitter bite. A sharp, tasty pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2010
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.
Earlier Rating: 8/5/2008 Total Score: 4
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!

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2013
A nice pale ale with a great hop medley. I usually really love dry hopped ales, but this one was a bit too subtle for me. Very floral, crisp beer with a lot of character, but not as bitter as I’d like. Pours a gorgeous yellow orange with golden edges. A winner but not a favorite.
