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 -thanks Artem! Pours clear amber with a large creamy off white head that dissipates with great lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, citrus, mango. Flavors the same, very light sweet, light bitter. Bitter in the finish, a touch metallic. Light body, bit watery.

12 oz can given to me by bvc. The pour is a mostly clear orange golden with a full two inch off white head. The head falls with splotchy lacing. The aroma is floral lemon peel bitterness along with cracker malt. The taste is sharply floral and lemon hops up front, then some pine hop, all layered on top of the clean cracker malt. The pine becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. The palate is light bodied, average carbonation, and a mineral earth bitter finish. Easy drinking Pale. Thanks for this one Brandon.

kaser (2791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Poured from 22oz bottle at home. Orange and clear. Good fruity taste, mild hops, orange and vanilla notes. Like this, especially for being a pale ale

Hazy gold. Lots of west coast hop notes. I get pine and tangerine. Nose is weak but with a hint of grass

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Pours clear gold. Aroma of floral hop, some citrus but mostly malt. Taste is nice, not very bitter at all, lots of biscuity malt and floral hop, some nutty malt. Medium body and carbonation. Not a very bold APA as far as hops go, but very solid and drinkable. A good entry beer for people that say they don’t like IPA’s. More malty than the old stand-by Sierra Pale.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Safeco. Amber with a foamy off white head. Aroma is typical PacNW hops with a light caramel scent. Flavor is biscuity malt with a firm hop bitterness. Medium body and average carbonation. Very nice pale, hoppy with a nice malty base.

Archetypally beautiful and tasty. Exactly the pint i’ve been craving for months, a clean, bright, fresh and powerfully balanced pale ale. Nice citrus and pine in great golden amber package. Impressive first pint from the new Fremont Brewery for me, can’t wait for more.

Who put the "Free" in "Fremont"? Alex?

On tap at the Fremont Oktoberfest. Pours cloudy dark orange with an off-white ring of foam. Sweet peach and grapefruit nose. Taste of toffee, peach, earth, spice and citrus. Crisp finish. This is nice stuff!

robforbes (2072) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2012
pours a pretty clear amber-orange with a very large white fluffy head, and good amount of sticky lacing. smell is of hops, a little wet grain, caramel, dish soap, floral, and a little malt in back. taste is of malt, grain, some hops, and caramel. ends a little thin and somewhat bitter.

OldMrCrow (1867) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Tap at the High Life. Nice amber pour, enjoyable citric hop snap atop something rather like an English Pale malt body. As I work my way through the pint, though, I find it hard to overlook the off-flavors that crackedmachine noted, both metallic elements and a touch of boiled cruciferous vegetables. Nevertheless, quite reasonable pale with enough hop presence to keep from regretting not ordering an IPA..
