A great pale ale if you like a little cascade flower up your nose. If you don’t like cascade... don’t try it. But if you do you’ll love it. A taste sensation!

Bottle at GBBF and one at home. This stuff totally blew me away, like i sampled one at the fest and had to buy one to bring home. Aroma is soo fresh and hoppy, citrus hop resin, leafy green hops, good underlying pale biscuity malt character. Taste is similar, quite a bitter chap too. Like id happily sit and drink like 10 of these every weekend and i wouldnt get bored. Excellent! Lets just hope thats what they are makign a cask vertion of for the wetherspoon fest!

12 oz bottles: Peachy color, maybe 12 SRM, bubbly without lasting head. Aroma is honey-sweet and gushing with Cascade dry-hopped goodness. Flavor leads with honey, toffee and berry jam, balanced with crisp hop bitterness spot-on for style. Medium light body with sustained finish that confirms this pale best of style.
&#40;Flavors muddle a bit as beer warms past cellar temps&#41;.

Delicious beer, amazing aroma even from a bottle (I am playing ping pong, no glasses). Anyway, very impressed at the sharp hoppy piney nose and the bitterness that lasts just long enough.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 12 oz. bottle. I may have rated this beer a bit high. This is my "go-to" beer, or session beer, so I may be biased. Golden color with thin white head. Aroma is mostly Cascade hops - that familiar mild and citrusy scent thats like an old friend. Flavor is mostly the hops, but amazingly very little bitterness. Some honey and fruity sweetness balance it out. Crisp, crisp, crisp! Medium light body with average carbonation. The moderate ABV and the fact that its crisp and refreshing without compromising any flavor or aroma makes for what is probably the most drinkable beer Ive ever had.

Bardzo dobre piwo, znakomicie pachnace 4 chmielami (Fuggle, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook), Takze kilka slodow do tego lekko zamglone, piana srednia, i srednio utrzymuje sie na powierzchni, ale jest drobnoziarnista i mocno przywiera do szklanicy i tworzy koronki, wspanialy nad nia jest ten aromat chmielny. APA mistrzowskie, do tego znakowana butelka z numeren seryjnym i rozlewem

Pours pale golden with a super tiny white head. Smells rather simple, but pleasant; soft malt character with some subtle California style hoppings. Taste is directly bitter with hints of sweetness on the back end. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Firestone Walker Pale 31 finishes with a drying bitterness that calls for another drink.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours a bright pale orange-yellow color.
Smell: Got a great combo of pale malt and citrus notes.
Taste: A great american pale ale with hops coming in first and then finishing a very creamy well balanced pale ale. Refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium carbonation that is very smooth.
Overall: A flawless and refreshing take on american pale ales not having to be hoppy or bitter. Will buy again.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Original score 4.0 Another fine-smelling ale from Firestone Probably one of the hoppier pale ales available (also not really that pale). The hoppiness is bubbly and lofty, kinda like Loft from Fat Tire. Leaves a long-lasting tingly-ness around your entire mouth. Two for two so far from this brewery (that I’ve had).
Had again as Pale 31, not knowing that it was the same beer.

Out of the bottle from a liquor store near LAX. Pours a beautiful clear golden orange. Slight carbonation, slightly off-white head. Filtered. What a palate, much like Sierra Nevada but more robust. The lower alcohol content is quite suprising. Fantastic Pale Ale. Cheers!!
