COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fremont is the self-proclaimed “Center of the Universe” and Universale, our flagship product, honors the namesake of our unique location. Universale Pale Ale offers a distinctive Northwest twist on the classic pale ale, using a select blend of organic Gambrinus pale roasted malt and Old World malts balanced with classic Northwest hops to achieve a heavenly beer of rich malt flavor and subtle hop spice. This is beer. Enjoy.

The hop profile is very subtle. This malt profile is more dominant. This has a somewhat bready taste. Fairly easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ACHops (736) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2013
On tap @ Fremont. Pours orangish pale with medium white head. Aroma is mild pale malt and sharply bitter earthy piney hops. Taste is clean pale malt with big hoppy finish. Earthy, floral citrus hop notes dominate. Bitter finish, but doesn’t linger. Definitely on the hoppy side for a pale, which probably explains why I like it this much.

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Nice aroma on this for just a pale ale. Floral, piney, and plenty of citrus on top of a solid malt balance. Slightly more lackluster flavor, less hop presence, more malts coming through. Tasty.

mcberko (6883) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
On tap at BevX360, pours a hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out fresh piney hops, a little fresh grass and doughy malt. Flavour brings out fresh dough, medium hops presence for a pale ale, finishing very doughy. Very drinkable for a pale ale, with a very high freshness factor. Great doughy pale.

Draft at the source. Pale golden color. Aroma of fruit and light pine. Taste is resin and bitter fruit.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Safeco. Amber with a foamy off white head. Aroma is typical PacNW hops with a light caramel scent. Flavor is biscuity malt with a firm hop bitterness. Medium body and average carbonation. Very nice pale, hoppy with a nice malty base.

Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Nice pale ale flavors and finish. Great beer for the style. I was very pleased with this beer.

maxwelldeux (3763) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose reminded me quite a bit of a nice IPA - somewhat hoppy with some floral and citrus elements coming through. Taste is slightly bitter, yet very crisp and smooth. I really like it.

jnanakul (26) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Poured from a 22oz bottle in to a pint glass. Brass color, slightly hazy with a 1 finger off white head. Aroma is citrusy, piney hops. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, a medium malt backbone and piney hops. Medium body, leaves mouth slightly dry, medium carbonation and a hoppy finish. Overall a solid pale ale. Not world class but definitely worthy of my glass.

Can. Pale pour with decent white head. Nose fairly faint floral hops. Taste has little more hop along with fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
