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.

probstblueribbon (3011) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy golden with a full, off-white head. Aroma: Crisp grapefruit and grainy maltiness, a little floral and more citrus, fairly clean. Palate: Medium body with moderate to low carbonation. Flav.: Maltier than the nose with some Vienna or Munich, still has decent citrus hop notes with a lightly floral aspect; dry with decent bitterness and a clean, citrus and Vienna malt finish.

Fair to good.

Flaska från Ralphs LA. Ljus bärnsten med vitt skum. Lätt humledoft med lite tallbarr. Inte fruktig, snarare lätt med lite humlecitrus och väldigt liten beska.

martin00sr (820) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2014
Clear golden, small white head. Aroma has toffee and citrusy hops. Flavour is similar, but definately weaker than the aroma suggests. Hints of honey in otherwise rather light finish.

ThreeCats (592) - ISRAEL - NOV 3, 2014
Slightly hazy golden with a spongy head. Aroma is floral and a little dank. Taste clean with citrus and grain notes. A bit of metallic feeling around mid-palate, and again on tongue afterwards, but fleeting both times. A nice pale ale, but I suspect my sample was a bit old. Would probably be amazing fresh
