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.

Ernest (6729) - 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.

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.

Sledutah (6042) - Utah, USA - FEB 2, 2013
12oz can from Total Wine in WA
Appearance: A huge gusher out of the can onto my desk, not good. Pours cloudy golden with a huge frothy white head that recedes quickly leaving spotty lacing in the glass
Aroma: Floral, lemon peel and wet grains
Taste: Citrus, caramel, bready, herbal and pine bitterness
A nice hoppy pale ale. Not happy about the gusher, but what was left was 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.

onceblind (5490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Beautiful clear golden with a foamy white head. Prety lovely nose of sweet of pale ale malty biscuit and a sharp grassy fresh cascade hop. Smooth and mellow flavor thats balanced and hoppy and sweet malty. There’s a nice grassy and citrus pop on the start followed by a golden toast and pale ale malt body. Nice toffee and citrus sweetness with a blonde ale body. And a touch of peppery hops. Nicely nuanced pale.

On draft at the brewery. Golden pour, with a slight haze. Crisp and citrusy, crackers, grapefruit, and some mild caramel. Easy drinking, pretty nice pale ale.
