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.

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2012
This brew pours a mostly clear dark orange color with a medium bone white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lace on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with some pale malt behind it. Light body with flavors of biscuit malt, citrus and mildly bitter hops. The finish is fruity with a short hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle @ the medicinal shop. Pours a golden orange appearance with a frothy, cream colored head. Slightly piney, sprucey, herbal, moderate citrusy aroma. Slightly twangy, orange citrusy, herbal, soapy flavor. Not as good as some of their other offerings. Would like to re-rate on tap.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Tap at Fremont. Pours a clear, bright golden with webby lacing. Nose has the brewery’s characteristic weedy skunk note universal in their hoppy stuff along with some raw brewhouse/sweet wort boil. It doesn’t bother me- makes it feel rustic. But for others this may be seen as flawed. Taste is full biscuit balance, beautiful malt showcase as always with this brewer. Thick mango, marmalade, grilled papaya, huge sourdough biscuit. Balancing, beautiful. Shows a lot of brewer aptitude.

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Can shared by Bob - thanks! Clear light golden pour with a smaller head. Syrupy citrusy aroma, a little bready. Smooth. Pretty solid.

DuffMan (9593) - 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.
