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.

12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Bottled on 7/31/12. Shit, just noticed that. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium white lacy head. Nice citrusy nose; I’m also getting SweeTarts and some age after it sits for a few minutes. Tastes a little past its prime. I really wish I would have noticed that born on date before my purchase. It’s a little sweet and a little bitter. Other than the noticeable age, this tastes pretty clean. Highly carbonated and light-bodied. Let me re-rate a fresher version of this when I get a chance.

dlovell2 (677) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours clear bubbly golden color with white head. Aroma is biscuity malt with grassy, floral hop and citrus. Dry biscuity malt start with a slight yeastiness. A really dry crisp grassy floral hop with some lemon note finishing with pine. Bitterness does not linger, finishes very clean. As always, another great brew from Firestone Walker. A solid Pale Ale.

TET (1573) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2014
A dark yellow beer with a dense, blond and quite big head. Aroma has sweet caramell, peaches, citrusfruits and mandarin. Taste is clearly dryer than aroma, still caramell, herbal-pine hops, some fruits. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Only slightly fruitful. Slightly disappointment, anyway the bottle isn’t very fresh anymore.

FatPhil (9172) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2014
660ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Zesty lemon spice, lemongrass aroma. Thin palate, perfumed soap and floor cleaner lemon and sweetness. Works in the aroma, but is boring after that.

Sigmund (4956) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 355 ml bottle, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. ABV is 4.9% according to front label, according to rear label (from German importer BraufaktuM) it is 4.6%. BB date 30.07.2013. Malts are Pilsener, Pale (Maris Otter), Münchener, Caramel. Hops are Fuggle, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of caramel, orange marmalade and American hops, also some herbal notes. Smooth mouthfeel and flavour, moderate carbonation. Not too sweet, a little caramel, herbal hops but not very bitter. Not bad at all despite BB date, but will sample again when I get a fresher bottle, might be even better fresh.

A well made pale ale. Too straightforward to make me love it but if looking for a safe pale ale without unique hoppiness this is a refreshing and solid choice. Bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
