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.

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.

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 (7036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

Benzai (9353) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Sampled at CBC 2013. Clear yellow color, small white to off-white virtually non lacing, mostly diminishing head. Smell lightly malts, lightly bitter, lightly hops. Tastes about the same. No flaws, but a bit boring although that may be caused by the amount of big beers available at the festival. Tastes also a bit thin, but that could very well have the same reason. Would like to try it again sometime on a hot summer day.

GIJOE (730) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Pale golden beer with a thin white head that stays a while. Sparse carbonation bubbles rising. Aroma is delicate floral hoppiness with bready undertones. Flavor is nicely balanced malt and hoppy bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation. Good brew.

bigbish (576) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours a straw/holden color, lots of carbonation, head dissipates quickly. The beer is a lot lighter than I was expecting. It’s a very approachable, drinkable session beer for sure. Great flavor, crisp, clean. Good stuff.
