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.

Serving: 12 oz. can from 5000. Thanks Andre! Deep gold pour with a dense white head. Hoppy nose with light pine notes. The flavor has a touch of cracker, light pine needles, and a dry finish. Nice daily drinker.

robforbes (2074) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2012
pours a pretty clear amber-orange with a very large white fluffy head, and good amount of sticky lacing. smell is of hops, a little wet grain, caramel, dish soap, floral, and a little malt in back. taste is of malt, grain, some hops, and caramel. ends a little thin and somewhat bitter.

Prufrockstar (1146) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Can poured into snifter. Med amber color, 1 finger white head, leaves irreg lacing. Hop, citrus aroma. Crisp hint of roasty grains meets citrus and is immediately followed by hop bitterness that dominates the finish. Refreshing NW pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Medium clear golden, white head that leaves delicate lace. Aroma is light citrus and biscuity malt. Sessionable palate of slightly sweet biscuity malts and perfumey citrus hops, in nice balance. Just a nice sit-&-chill beer.

Smurf2055 (1400) - 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 (1338) - 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

michaelinwa (612) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2012
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.
