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.

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.

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

Bottle -thanks Artem! Pours clear amber with a large creamy off white head that dissipates with great lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, citrus, mango. Flavors the same, very light sweet, light bitter. Bitter in the finish, a touch metallic. Light body, bit watery.

12 oz can given to me by bvc. The pour is a mostly clear orange golden with a full two inch off white head. The head falls with splotchy lacing. The aroma is floral lemon peel bitterness along with cracker malt. The taste is sharply floral and lemon hops up front, then some pine hop, all layered on top of the clean cracker malt. The pine becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. The palate is light bodied, average carbonation, and a mineral earth bitter finish. Easy drinking Pale. Thanks for this one Brandon.

Hanuta06 (378) - Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Serving: from can--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: lightly hoppy with grapefruit overtones. Appearance: large, rocky, off-white, initial head with fully diminishing longevity and very good lacing. Hazy, dark-yellow body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and lightly citrusy, slightly acidic finish with average duration. Palate: light bodied with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: excellent. Very subtle, appealing taste with no overpowering attributes. Easy to drink.

Sledutah (5598) - Utah, USA - FEB 2, 2013
12oz can from Total Wine in WA
Appearance: A huge gusher out of the can onto my desk, not good. Pours cloudy golden with a huge frothy white head that recedes quickly leaving spotty lacing in the glass
Aroma: Floral, lemon peel and wet grains
Taste: Citrus, caramel, bready, herbal and pine bitterness
A nice hoppy pale ale. Not happy about the gusher, but what was left was tasty
