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.

Zoob (85) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Aroma= Medium hops supported by light malt Apperence = Bright yellow Flavor = Nice bitterness all the way through. Although not overly malty the beer is quite refreshing and for the most part in balance Palate = medium to med light, good carbination Over all = a very nice Pale in American style. If there is a flaw malt bill could be low but it is a really tasty beer and not hopped to IPA

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 16, 2015
Bottled on 03.11.14. Poured into a tumbler on 05.13.14. A: See through yellow with a light head, which recedes quickly. S: Flower. Some pine and grapefruit. T: Pine, grapefruit dominate. Honey, flower are subtle. M: Crisp. Has perfect carbonation. O: This was somewhat hop forward. It was nicely balanced, but I guess that I expected that the hops would be stronger.

alkolas510 (745) - SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2015
Guldig klar med litet vit skum. Mycket citrus humle i både doft och smak. Väldigt fyllig trots låg% med bra beska

rosenbergh (7506) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 09/23/14. From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. The aroma is sweet fruitiness, citric notes and toffee accomplished with mild bitterness and maltiness. The flavour is fruity hops, mild bitterness, sweetness and malt. Easy but super drinkable.

muffel (139) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle 355ml. Pours a pale golden color with a small white head that disappears quickly. Smelly quite fruity and sweet. Floral hop aroma and a long bitter aftertaste. Medium body and low carbonation. Not my favorite style of beer, but this is nice nevertheless.

mcberko (7443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Nose brings out pleasant floral hops, some tropical fruits, and some earthy herbal notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with crisp crackery malt, floral hops, a light tropical fruitiness and some herbal notes. Very fresh and crisp body. A pleasant pale ale that is quite drinkable.

popephred (261) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
I poured this ale into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a hazy, pale yellow body topped by a big, fluffy head of white foam, which lingered for quite a while. The aroma was floral, with some generous hopping (or at least I could assume so, since this is what I smelled through my cold.) Some slight sweetness, balanced by the bitterness of the hops, which quickly faded to a minimal aftertaste. This ale is medium bodied and had a smooth texture, making it quite drinkable.

Westchesterco (1163) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2015
On draft at dominion beer and wine it is a clear golden color with a big frothy white head. The aroma is floral and the taste is a strong bitter white grapefruit taste that finishes bittet
