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.

On tap at Fish. in Saulsalito, CA. Pours and tastes a crisp honey lightened with the right amount of hops. Very drinkable.

Nothing extraordinary, but nothing negative, either; it’s "just right." Golden in color, just enough hops, finishes very clean. A very drinkable beer.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle from a six-pack bought at a local grocery store. Bright clear gold color, half-inch dense white head. Aroma is of floral hops, a little piney. Flavor is very balanced. Bready/biscuit malt flavors contrasting to a nice bitterness, hop flavors are present, a little earthy and piney. Clean, dry mouthfeel. Overall a fantasticlly balanced pale ale. Very drinkable.

Pours clear and golden, average head and lace for a PA. Citrus nose with a hint of malt. Fresh taste with a little sweet up front and some hop on the finish. Some chalk on the aftertaste.

foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Beer poors light golden with a persistent white head. Aroma is strong citrus and herbal with malt present in the nose as well. Flavor has a medium high bitterness with solid maltiness, but hops dominate. Palate is somewhat drying somewhat from the hopping, encouraging another drink. Overall the beer is a very nice pale ale, very drinkable.

micronaut129 (143) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a brilliantly clear light golden amber color with a medium size head. The foamy cap is fairly dense and has a tan color. Carbonation is medium to weak. This is quite a pale pale ale. This beer does not lack for aromatics. The hop bouquet is big and bright with aromas of grass floral and pine. Malts are understated and weak. Flavor finds a nice hoppy ale, just right I think for a pale ale. Malts and hops balance nicely with a godd biscuit malt finish. Unfortunately on the palette the beer presents itself as watery and rather weak. Its smooth with a semi-dry finish. This is a California style APA and I couldn’t find any info about that style. Maybe a hoppy steam beer. I thought this beer pretty good even with the lighter taste, could be a session or yard beer perhaps.

Crash_the_dog (141) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Deep golden color with a thin, quickly dissolving head. A light hoppy crispness on the nose leads to a dry mouthfeel and a light body. The finish is actually reminiscent of some big brewer premium lagers. Nice and refreshing summertime option. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellent example of the style. I typically finish a beer as I’m writing the review and it’s already gone! Pours a rich clear amber color. Nice vanilla aroma nestled within the hops. Wonderful mouthfeel with the vanilla malt backed up nicely by a crisp hop bite. Goes down exceedingly smooth and quick. Thanks to TMR Bac for the sample!

Smooth with a mild bitterness bite. Not a bold IPA. Mellow California pale ale. Low alcohol content makes it prime for multiple tip-backs.
