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.

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.

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

12 oz single can from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Hazy light orange appearance with a sticky white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pale malts, light bead, floral notes, light spice and light tropical fruits. Similar flavor, moderately hoppy and lightly zesty with light malt sweetness. Smooth and easy to drink, solid APA.

Can from Mile High. The body on this is a light amber with some hop haze and a really tall, explosive, rocky white head. The aroma is grassy with supporting notes of orange and lime. Palate is fizzy and has a reasonable, sugary malt body. It’s very appropriate for the style. Hops are the first thing noticed in the flavor with hints at lawn clippings, lemon and orange. Finish is bittersweet and just a touch metallic. This is not a bad pale ale by any stretch, but it’s my least favorite Fremont beer so far. It seems like they have a really strong catalog.

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.

Bottle, from the in-laws at Xmas. Sort of forgot about this, otherwise I would have cracked it a month ago… not that it matters once I see the date stamped on the neck… bottled 01/14/13. It’s 25 months old! Pops with plenty of carb, pours a clear copper color and is topped with a thick finger of creamy beige head. Tons of sheet lacing. The nose is lively with floral and pine, a tiny bit of grass. Mostly floral hops in the taste with minimal grassy notes. The malt presence is sturdy, but it doesn’t overshadow the hops. Rating is based on the taste today, wow this has aged gracefully, but I’ll look for this fresh…

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.

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!

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.
