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.

Armitage (9) - - APR 2, 2013 does not count
In one word, pleasant. Crisp palate and inoffensive floral aroma. Just enough hops to remind you this is a serious beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MikeJslc (777) - USA - APR 26, 2013
Deep gold, clear, thin white head. Aroma of grainy, biscuity malt with some caramel, light hop aroma of citrus/pine. Flavor is similar with a crisp grainy maltiness, a touch of caramel, and a hop flavor that is fairly grassy. Nice drinkable pale ale.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2013
Clear gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Sweet citrus and floral hoppy aroma, with light toasty, sweet cereal malt. Sweet, bright citrus aroma, light tropical fruit, caramel, sweet fruity notes and a hoppy acidic twang. Light body with a somewhat dry and slightly sticky feel. Really tasty and nicely refreshing.

jmgreenuk (7086) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Poured a clear yellow straw colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is grassy and floral, leading to a medium bitter, fresh hoppy, grassy flavour. It tasted like the contents of my lawn mower box! A super beer. Can’t wait to try this again.

Pours a deep golden amber. Medium head, nice lacing. Floral and pine scents come through, slightly sweet. Nice carbonation and crisp, clean finish. Overall very solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Gold with a medium head; average appearance. Initial sulphury (skunked?) lager smell, followed by grape and earthy hop, then rubber. Light and dry with some peach fruitiness and big spicy noble hop flavor. Crisp body, clean bitter finish. Finally, an American pale that is more hop-expressive than most IPAs and doesn’t taste like canned fruit salad.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Lots of grassy citrus on the nose. Light yellow with plenty of effervescence. Taste of bitter fruit and a hint of Ritz Cracker malt. Light crispy body with a nice hop zing. Great light-side APA.
