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.

GT2 (9283) - San Diego County, 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.

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.

DuffMan (7996) - 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.

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

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.

drowland (6831) - 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.
