Bottle. Lots of hop aroma, light body, citrus bitter taste, maybe some pine, with a long hop finish. Pretty bitter for a pale ale.

Pours a vibrant golden color with a white head which stays around quite a whiled. Aroma is pure and clean floral hop. Floral aroma moves right into the taste hitting then clean and crisply with the malt and finishing with a touch of bitterness......a wonderfully well rounded pale with pronounced hop notes. Wonderful rendition of a well built hoppy American pale ale.

Bottle Dated 6/05/13 - Pale 31 to me is a classic american pale ale that is consistent in flavor and available year round. It’s crisp, clean, bright, and refreshing. Perfect abv with a nice amount of hops without being overly bitter for the style. Loved every last sip.

Bottle at Third Base Round Rock. Clear pale amber and a small white head that leaves good lace. Light nose with subdued grass and citrus. Low sweet malt start followed by a medium bitterness. Medium mouth with slightly soft carbonation and a short dry finish. Inoffensive and easy to drink but nothing outstanding.

Pine and floral nose. Golden lager like pour. Malty start with a piney bitter finish. A good west coast pale ale and very drinkable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rerating as of a few beers later........ Beer is an excellent session ale. Aroma is sweet malty and light citrus hops, bright. Appearance is orange brown. Crystal clear. Small white head. Taste is malt and hops balanced very nicely. Hops are very floral and citrus, slight earthy. Honey, caramel, strawberry... very mild. Palate is light, a little watery, drinkable. Overall this is a very nice beer. Hops are perfect IMO. Could have a bit fuller palate for my liking, but perfect for session drinking. Excellent session beer. One of the best commercial examples I have had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid pale ale. Nice hoppy aroma. Clear gold/brass in the glass with good lacing. Taste is pretty mild and maltier than the aroma indicates. Not bad but not exceptional.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is floral and citrusy. Pours a light color amber with a white head. A good bit of carbonation adds to the bitterness. Taste is citrusy, somewhat piney. Overall the bitterness and hop aromas stand out the most; seems slightly unbalanced.

Pours a clear golden color with a medium foamy white head. Light aroma of sweet apples or cherries with a little bit of hops. Only a little bit of the malts make it through to the taste. A very thin but crisp beer with a decent little hop finish. Leaves a minor dryness that fades shortly after.
