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.

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.

Bottle pours a golden color with a white head that lasts for quite some time. The head laces the glass all the way down. Aroma has a notable hop presence and smells sweet. Mouthfeel is medium with a smoothness and crispness that helps it slide down easier. Tastes caramel sweet with a hop twang on the finish. Overall this is what a pale should be. Bold for the style, crisp, refreshing, and is something that you’d want to drink on a regular basis. Nice job.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a deep, clear gold (almost orange) with a thin, short-lived, small-bubbled, white head. The aroma is a big, bold, lovely, hoppy bouquet of flowers, honey, and oranges. There is a touch of fresh-baked croissants along with the sweet citrus hop smell. The flavor starts malty and bittersweet with big hop flavor and a decent, complex malt base. The malt has some toffee and caramel notes, but also a slight woody note (cardboard-ish? almost like it’s oxidized, except not unpleasant... perhaps it is a minor level of oxidation, or perhaps it is from the small amount of barrel aged beer that is part of the blend). The middle of the tongue picks up on some grainy flavors with the hop character entering into soapy territory. The finish is dry with a big hop flavor (piney) but soft bitterness. There is more wood/cardboard in the finish, too. The mouthfeel is medium in body with a nice, smooth texture and a slight tingle from carbonation. Overall, a very easy-drinking pale ale, but the oxidation (or oak?) is a bit distracting - especially in the finish.

PabloZab (1030) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Butelka 355ml (23.12.2016). Piwo klarowne o złocistej barwie. Piana biała z delikatnym odcieniem szarości, średnio obfita, niezbyt trwała ale za to świetnie krążkuje na ściankach szkła. W aromacie słodkie nuty owoców tropikalnych, cytrusów i delikatna nuta multiwitaminy. Całość jest dość intensywna, rześka. Goryczka na średnim poziomie ma charakter cytrusowy z wyraźnym słodkim posmakiem owoców tropikalnych i multiwitaminy, krótka w czasie, niezalegająca, za to ściągająca, mocno pobudza ślinianki do pracy aż chce się wziąć kolejny łyk. Piwo ma zdecydowanie wytrawny charakter co podbija odczucie gorycki, jest bardzo lekkie w odczuciu ale wyraźne nasycenie podbija nieco ciało, bardzo pijalne i świetnie orzeźwiające. I choć daje się wyczuć malutką pustkę w tle to nie jest to jakimś problemem, wszak piwo jest typowo sesyjne, świetne na gorący, letni dzień.

agl108 (1022) - 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.

Bright clear golden yellow color. Pale off white head. Nice hop and wet grass and pine nose. Very clean crisp hop taste. Yum.

ianwelby (1019) - 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.

Manslow (1019) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 4, 2016
Butelka 0,355l kolor jasnozłoty, klarowne, piana znikoma, szybko opada. Piękny aromat sosnowy z chmielem w tle, smak owoców cytrusowych i słodów, ostry posmak na podniebieniu, świetnie ułożone piwo.
