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.

Concealer (937) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Clear golden pours with clean foamy white head. Smells of citrus, spice, caramel and sweet grain. Flavor is sweet citrus and malt upfront with a bitter hop spice at the end.

flying_pig (1125) - SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2015
355ml bottle at home from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.00):
One that definitely grew on me as I worked my way down the glass. I initially wasn’t overly impressed with what I felt to be a weak nose & a lack of in your face hops with the taste but given time to open up the bitterness is there & the beer starts to work its magic. It’s definitely not up there with their Union Jack IPA but it’s not a bad effort from Firestone Walker again.

Lukaduke (2660) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a medium golden color with good clarity and a finger plus of tight white foam. Nose is bready with some floral grass and nuances of spicy citrus. Palate follows, bright clean well balanced bitterness. Soft toasted grain, citrus peel, pine.

GMarini (11) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Very hoppy aroma with fruits, some spice and caramel malt. Flavour also dominated by hoppy bitterness and complimented by the fruity hops and the slight malt sweetness. Slightly thin but quite nice.
