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.

Crash_the_dog (141) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Deep golden color with a thin, quickly dissolving head. A light hoppy crispness on the nose leads to a dry mouthfeel and a light body. The finish is actually reminiscent of some big brewer premium lagers. Nice and refreshing summertime option. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aquilo (533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Yellow, clear, white head. Aroma is citrus and rosemary. Flavor is moderately bitter. Very abrasive mouthfeel. It’s like liquid sandpaper. Overall, it’s not horrible.

BiddleBrau (915) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Clear golden with thinner white head. Citrus notes in the nose some caramel malt aroma. Astringent on the front end that lingers, some citrus hop flavor that pushes the malt profile down. There is flavor here but it seems to much towards a hop that isn’t to my liking.

unclemike (2213) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - OCT 10, 2013
clear golden body with a small white head.the aromas and falvor were of your standard pale ale.i detected some malts and a bit of bitter hops.this would be really good with a big meal such as steak,or ribs to wash your palate.but overall id say its pretty average

sawbuck (286) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
Mild hop aromas with some hints of citrus. Pale yellow in color, minimal head. Nice initial sweet flavor of malt with citrusy hop overtones. Mild bitterness from hops. Finish is quick and bitter. A bit watery but not bad.

RABinCO (1139) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottled poured into a nonic pint glass. Deep gold hay pour, thin white head. Aroma of lemongrass, orange zest, grass. Taste is juicy, lemon, orange, grass, bit of sweet malt. Bit of a bitter bite. A tad thin. Would drink Pivo Pils or Easy Jack over this.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2004
A hazy orange beer with an OK head. The aroma is extremely hoppy with a sweet background. The flavor is hoppy, grassy, and extremely dry, while the mouthfeel is flat.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2005
light brown color with thin white lacing, mild hop aroma, not very strong, little tones of malt as well. nothing remarkable about the flavor either, a decent balance of grassy hops and sweet malts, but the whole thing just seemed a little weak. body is light and clean, finish is crisp and nothing lingering behind to sour your palate. what there is of this brew is good, but the flavors were a bit muted, and could use a little boost.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2007 Bottle... Clear, light golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Malty, fruity nose with notes of grapefruit, vanilla, toffee and a hint of oak. Good balance. Mild to medium sweetness and bitterness with a little vanilla, toffee and oak. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, fairly clean finish. More like an EPA than APA.
