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.

5000 (6599) - 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.

riversideAK (6140) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2009
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.

kramer (5826) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Tap. Pours a clear gold body with a small wispy white head that fell to a thin ring. The nose is fairly bright floral hops with a light crackery and bready malt base. Very fresh and bright. The flavor is bright and bitter with a grapefruit finish, nicely dry pale malt body. Light bodied and very easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Lingering light tropical fruit hops. Really nice sessionable Pale Ale, this is what I want when on the west coast.

reebtogi (5681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
650ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy golden orangeish color with a 2 finger head that left some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasing citrusy hops with some faint cereal grains. Taste is citrusy hops with some fruitiness and a nice malty sweetness balancing this out. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. This is a fine high quality IPA that is highly recommended.
