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.

Very good pale ale with a good dose of hops. Very strong hoppy aroma, the hops in the taste are a bit more subdued.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Much better than the ratings give it credit for. A little light in color plus a small rapidly disappearing head. Aroma is of malt and citrus hops. Taste has some grapefruit, some pine, malt. Explodes in the mouth with a full body. Easily quaffable. A great session beer.

Citrus, floral, and sweet malt. Golden-amber, white head with decent lacing. Grassy, orange peel, mild caramel, and citrus flavour. Dry finish.

GIJOE (1078) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Pale golden beer with a thin white head that stays a while. Sparse carbonation bubbles rising. Aroma is delicate floral hoppiness with bready undertones. Flavor is nicely balanced malt and hoppy bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation. Good brew.

ianwelby (1062) - SCOTLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Lively, clear golden beer with a white bubbly head. Strong, floral citrus aroma. Flavour is surprisingly mellow. Lemony hop, somewhat dry, a bit of a resinous hint to it and this gives it a slightly tangy aftertaste which lingers for a fair while.

"Pour a gold color medium head. SMell of flowers and hops. Had a sweet taste to it yet citruisy. Moutfeel isn’t thin Finished dry. Overall not a bad pale ale. "

agl108 (1047) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2009
12 oz. bottle at TJ’s. Poured hazy gold. Extremely smooth and light, crisp citrus hoppiness. More characteristic of an extra pale ale. Was expecting a little bit more from these guys but this one is very sessionable at least.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2007
11-16-07 bottle. Clear amber pour. METALLIC taste and finish. Watery and bland aside from the metal. Just not impressed - I wanted a lot more.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2006
Pours a rich golden color with a ncie fluffy head. Fresh citrus aroma with some orange marmalade. Assertive hop flavor is characterized bystrong lemon/lime flavor but balanced by a sweet malt component. Finish dry and crisp. Not bad.
