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.

Hops: Columbus, Centennial, Cascade and Simcoe. Malts: Pale, Special Aromatic, and Victory. Poured from a can into a tumbler on 12.27.13. A: See through golden. 1 finger fluffy head that retains well. S: Delicious citrus, pine. Fantastic! T: Pine, citrus, flower. Malt is there as a base. M: Crisp. Perfect carbonation. O: This was the first APA that I had ever tried and it blew me away. This beer changed my view of what beer could taste like. I expected a lip-puckering "bitter beer face" bitterness but what I got instead was a wash of pine and citrus. It pushed me to challenge my tastebuds and explore other beer styles. This beer is my first love.

had at Fremont okto fest. This is a nice pale ale. A good hop. A bit fruity, more floral and some good bittering hops. A great surprise to the festival for me.

Serving: from can--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: lightly hoppy with grapefruit overtones. Appearance: large, rocky, off-white, initial head with fully diminishing longevity and very good lacing. Hazy, dark-yellow body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and lightly citrusy, slightly acidic finish with average duration. Palate: light bodied with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: excellent. Very subtle, appealing taste with no overpowering attributes. Easy to drink.

Draught. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose reminded me quite a bit of a nice IPA - somewhat hoppy with some floral and citrus elements coming through. Taste is slightly bitter, yet very crisp and smooth. I really like it.

Nice. Agreeable. There’s nothing to write home about, but it’s sufficiently flavorful. No one will be offended.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2011 Overall, I liked it a lot. Nice hoppy, floral aroma. Golden color. Pour is fairly lively, with a nice head. Sweetness and bitterness are well-balanced.

Smells great citrus and floral. Tastes honey, dandelions, fresh and light. A perfect pale ale in my opinion. Pair with dried cherry, smoked chicken, Gouda flatbread at Black Bottle in Seattle. Heaven I tell you.

Beautiful clear golden with a foamy white head. Prety lovely nose of sweet of pale ale malty biscuit and a sharp grassy fresh cascade hop. Smooth and mellow flavor thats balanced and hoppy and sweet malty. There’s a nice grassy and citrus pop on the start followed by a golden toast and pale ale malt body. Nice toffee and citrus sweetness with a blonde ale body. And a touch of peppery hops. Nicely nuanced pale.

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!
