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.

3fourths (8382) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle. Clear honey gold with a fine white head. Hoppy nose is pine lumber, herbs, gummi bears / tropical gum; Malt is lightly toasty and toffee-like; game-y butterscotch notes suggest diacetyl. Medium body, sweet, syrupy and glycerin-like on the tongue; moderately bitter, medium-low acid, buttery and off.

mcberko (8040) - 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.

DSG (7457) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[3/2/15] Draught at Fremont Brewing in Seattle. Golden. Mild aroma of citric hops. Rather dry flavor with citric hops and mild bitterness. Medium-bodied. Refreshing.

Can shared by Bob - thanks! Clear light golden pour with a smaller head. Syrupy citrusy aroma, a little bready. Smooth. Pretty solid.

DuffMan (7343) - 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.

drowland (6575) - Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2013
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.

Ernest (6514) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, grapefruit), with light notes of diacetyl and celery, hint of fusel alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather clunky aroma...rough malt and some light off notes. Ample hop bouquet, but the other things bring it down. Decent balance, but not especially clean. Mediocre at best.

22. Pours a clear medium amber with golden brown highlights. Loose filmy tannish head knocking around, leaving bits of patchy lace. Nice fruity nose, caramel showing through oranges and pineapples. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, oranges, and pineapple on the mid-palate. Pleasant. Tangy pineapple finish. Nice fresh citric fruity APA. Good stuff.

Sampler pack from a dude from the brewery, supposedly.. . Biscuit, hay, mild centennial, and dry grass .. Easy mouth, dry finish for a pale .. Good pale, but I liked the 77 so much better. .. . Betty white once ate a pot brownie and banged a tree stump.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bottle:   Amberish, a little fiery, fairly clear, moderate white head, nice lacing.   Soft hop nose, slightly soily/earthy.   Soft hoppiness up front, a little citrus rind and less earth than on the nose (thankfully).   Pretty soft, yet fairly clean.   Smooth too.   Not an overly hoppy Pale, which is nice for a change.   More sessionable than most.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but it coats the tongue fairly well.   Finish comes quick with this one.   Decent quaffer.
