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.

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Light yellow with a finger white head. Smell is hoppy and citrusy. Taste is much the same. Very drinkable. Fremont makes some solid stuff.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Golden pour, smallish head. Mild, hop-forward aroma, and a flavor that starts something like a weaker version of their Interurban, with biscuity malts coming to the front toward the finish. Standard.

BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured a nice orangish color with good carbonation leaving a nice white cap and some lacing S: Like a big fruit basket anf flower bouquet rooled up into one with light toasted bread T: Big citrus and flowers with a light toastiness, juicy, loads of flavor. Very nice and very much a West Coast Pale Ale M: Medium body, well carbonated, a little bit of slickness O: Good overall

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 Pours light gold color, with a medium, lasting head, lots of lacing, low aroma. Taste is balanced malty and significant resiny hop flavor. Substantial body on the palate. Maybe even a little chewy. Nice. Some complexity here, which you don’t often find in a pale ale. I know the brewer worked on this for a long time, and it shows. This is a pale ale that manages to stand out without almost becoming an IPA. Kudos, Fremont.

A drinkable pale ale alternative to SNPA. Bready malt with some citrus. Drinkable but far from my favorite in the APA category.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Pours clear gold. Aroma of floral hop, some citrus but mostly malt. Taste is nice, not very bitter at all, lots of biscuity malt and floral hop, some nutty malt. Medium body and carbonation. Not a very bold APA as far as hops go, but very solid and drinkable. A good entry beer for people that say they don’t like IPA’s. More malty than the old stand-by Sierra Pale.

poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. This bottle says 5.6% ABV. Pours hazy orange with a thick cream-colored rocky head with excellent retention and cobwebby lace. Aroma is citrusy hops backed by bready malts, neither all that assertive; I also get a bit of grain. Taste is bittersweet and sessionable. Finish is a bit bitter. Carbonation is medium and the body is medium-thin. Mouthfeel is creamy. Overall, a nice APA.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
650ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy golden orangeish color with a 2 finger head that left some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasing citrusy hops with some faint cereal grains. Taste is citrusy hops with some fruitiness and a nice malty sweetness balancing this out. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. This is a fine high quality IPA that is highly recommended.
