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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Oh my god, first rating of this beer. I am the mother-fucking man! Nose is nice and hoppy with hints of citrus and floral hops. Light base malt notes are bready and a bit sweet. Smells almost like Manny’s IMO. Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice thin head and good lace. Dry light and quenching with a hint of sweetness and a nice hoppy finish. Notes of orange, light citrus and some floral notes too. Insanely drinkable. Rather nice.

had at Fremont okto fest. This is a nice pale ale. A good hop. A bit fruity, more floral and some good bittering hops. A great surprise to the festival for me.
