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.

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.

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..

Finally got to try something from Fremont. Had this down at Nectar last night. Nice and easy drinking pale, yet a bit too mellow for my usual tastes...great club beer though!

Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. This bottle says 5.6% ABV. Pours hazy orange with a thick cream-colored rocky head with excellent retention and cobwebby lace. Aroma is citrusy hops backed by bready malts, neither all that assertive; I also get a bit of grain. Taste is bittersweet and sessionable. Finish is a bit bitter. Carbonation is medium and the body is medium-thin. Mouthfeel is creamy. Overall, a nice APA.

Pour from a 12 oz can. Big white head over a clear amber pour. Lots of white lacing on the glass. Citrus and slight pine nose. Lots of citrus in the taste. Slight lingering bitterness. A bit floral on the finish.

Canned: earlier Good toasted corn color with a solid quilt of light creamy foam leaving behind some ropes of lace. Herbal hops with a tea like character on the nose and some english crystal malts remind me of an old ale. There is also a small amount of detergent in the nose for me along some grass. Flavor is mostly dry tea leaves and some sweet malts alongside a bit of bitterness. I think with a bit of CaraPils, this one would actually make a really nice ESB, but it’s not doing it as an APA for me. Medium bodied with slightly slick feel. Overall drinkable, but think their Summer version should be the headliner. Serving type: can 08-03-2012

Light yellow with a finger white head. Smell is hoppy and citrusy. Taste is much the same. Very drinkable. Fremont makes some solid stuff.
