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.

Draft at GABBF: Poured a hazy yellowed with white head. Aroma is nice crisp hops that follow into the flavor. Also nice balance with the malts to make a very nice drinking pale ale.

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

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Bronze with crisp head. Honeyed floral grapefruit aroma. Body has a solid malt quality, with some honey malt flavor and barely discernable graininess. A bit of wet shoe intermingles with reserved grapefruit. Pretty reserved bitterness. Re-rated 3-20-10: Rather non-deScript hoppiness. Grainy and mildly hopped.

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.

On tap, served through randall with mosaic hops. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus, hop oils. Flavor of hop oils, fresh bitter grassy hops, garlicky hops, crackery malt, more hop oils in the finish. This is a hop bomb for sure, although the underlying malt base could be stronger. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Nice golden hue and nice lace. Nutty nose. Full of flavor yet easy to drink. Subtle sweetness with hints of bread. Hops are floral and mildly bitter. Really good pale.

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.

Serving: 12 oz. can from 5000. Thanks Andre! Deep gold pour with a dense white head. Hoppy nose with light pine notes. The flavor has a touch of cracker, light pine needles, and a dry finish. Nice daily drinker.

Pours a chill hazed golden yellow on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of resinous citrus hops and sweet bready malts. Taste is more toward the malty side, a hint of oxidation, but still nice and hoppy to balance. Not bad, but nothing special.

651 ml. bottle. Bottled 11/17/14. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled off white head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, gold (SRM 6) body.....nose is toasted malts, with hints of biscuit, light pine, citrus from the hops, no esters, balanced.....taste is mild toasted malts, bread, light pine, slight citrus notes, no esters, balanced....mouth feel, medium body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a clean, crisp, easy drinking beer. Unfortunately both the hops and malts are a bit muted, with the hop backbone being especially quiet. This is most probably due to the age of the bottle, but perhaps the hop selection. American Pale Ales are supposed to be hop dominated, and this one is not. BJCP 6/3/13/4/6
