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.

Suttree (5023) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Golden with a white head. Flowery, mild hops, Slightly watery palate, but that it is not a detriment. A little smoky on the finish. This is a good "drink a lot of this" beer.

mjg74 (2490) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Pours a yellow color with a hint of amber. Crisp, floral, hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor, little bit of sweetness. Pretty tasty up front but not much of a finish.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 29, 2005
Golden amber color, soapy white head. Full hoppy aroma, grapefruity. Flavor falls a touch flat, bitter, but not overly flavorful and could have some better balance. Lighter bodied. Not bad.

Bottle shared with blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of blankboy. Light gold-amber colour with a strong & pleasant herbal tea aroma. Flavour is quite fruity, with more tea notes and a citric finish. Bidy is thin, but it’s OK otherwise.

Had a good varity of aromas. Citrus, floral and pine. Darker shade of gold for body color with decent head. Flavor of citrus hops no malt profile in mine. Would of been nice the body texure would of been right. Cool and crisp on the palate a decent beer.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2006
This aroma offers the nose a smell of hops, peaches, grapefruit, and molasses. It is a golden solution with very little head offered. This thin bitter sour beer produces a taste of hops and grapefruit that fades leaving a mild hint of molasses lingering on the tongue.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle courtesy of HogtownHarry! Thank you! Pale yellow pour with medium white froth fading to a thin white ring. Good malted base aroma with mild pine hops and a boost of sugars. Decent hoppy flavour profile with sugared malt sweetness to balance. SLightly thin and watery finish. But would be very good for sessions. Glad I got to try it. Thanks Harry!

On tap @ Firestone Walker poured a clear gold with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and pine. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of carmel, lemon and a hint of orange with a lingering moderately bitter finish.
