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.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2009
pale golden colored pour with a soft barely tinted off white head. the nose is a bit dirty/earthy... almost british type hoppy aromas mixed with caramel, pale malt, orange, grass and light florals. medium bodied and crisp though the carbonation is low/soft. the flavor is pretty much the same... more earth, spice and a touch of dry piney hops. there is enough dryness and bitterness to keep me interested but nothing else really stands out. 6/3/6/3/15/3.3

Bottle 35,5 cl. Clear golden with a dense off-white head. Fresh citrusy nose. Rather light body, a little sweet fruitiness and a light and fresh hoppy finish. 100709

Clear orange-amber color, small white head. Very citrus-juicy aroma, also some bread. Citrusy, pale malty flavor. Balanced and sweetish pale ale.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Draft @ Yardhouse. Aroma has biscuit, some light floral, but pretty light. Taste is a pleasant fruity hop profile with the bready malts showing up in the middle and taking over. Finish is slightly bitter, a little watery. Decent quaffer.

BrooHa (120) - New York, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Received as extra from mkade8883. Thanks, Matt! Nice lookin’ beer!Pale copper and clear with minimal, off-white head. More amlt in the nose reminiscent of Bass (still oneof my favorite standbys). Sharp and dry on the tongue with a clean finish. Highly sessionable though I wish there was a little more malt to it. Would buy this as "standard inventory" if it was readily available.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2012
The pour is a clear, orangey, golden color with a fairly small, white, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing. The nose is very floral, some resins, orangey citrus, and some biscuits. The flavor is decidedly more passive with more biscuity notes, the citrus becoming almost limey, and slight resins. The palate is lively, light to medium, lightly crisp, and drying slightly. The finish carries a moderate bitterness, a limey citrus, and biscuits still. A fairly easy drinking, hop forward, session pale. The hop notes were pleasant but simple and the biscuit notes were a bit too overwhelming. Not bad for a <5% pale but fairly pedestrian.

Frank (3015) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2012
A nice citrusy pale ale. A bit too sweet but pretty drinnkable. Golden orange, small head with lots of lace. Full bodied with mild carbonation.

arminjewell (6414) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear yellowish orange with nice lacing white head, aroma brings notes of some lemon, bready notes, touch of grapefruit. Taste is nice bitter lemon peel, touch of pine and grass, some biscuit and bready notes, goes into a touch of grapefruit, finishing fairly clean. Nice.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 + mooie geel gouden kleur. + fris fruitige zoete geur. 1ste smaak - groente, 2de smaak - bitter, 3de smaak - door de bittere smaak is de 3de smaak niet goed proefbaar.
