ACME CALIFORNIA PALE ALE is a smooth, clean ale with faint citrus and honey flavor notes and a dry finish. It is brewed with Yakima Valley hops and the finest American two-row malt, but with a measure of British specialty malt for depth. This easy drinking pale ale is a "session beer" which will be welcomed at neighborhood taverns and restaurants (and refrigerators) throughout the west.

Idiosynkrasie (7848) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, white head. Biscuity, malty aroma with cautious honey touch, vegy, yeasty overtones, some orange zest. Taste is minimally sweet fruity, hints of orange and mandarine, light body, slightly watery. Loveless, anaemic, refutes any positive prejudice about California (concerning beer, of course, not e.g. the weather).

Brentv (682) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2014
From bottle. Pours a honey-color, a bit hazy with a pretty good-sized head that dissipates and leaves just a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty and faintly citrus. Taste is also malty, citrus, slight bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Light bitter finish.

Christpuncher (3191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pure malt garbage. No hoppy flavor and is just a terrible tasting beer. Pours light orange in color. Smells malty. Had at Carolina ale house on Charlotte. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GuideDogSaint (1718) - Xiamen, CHINA - NOV 3, 2014
355ml bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Metallic malt and pine aroma. Bitter finish.

Hopmaestro (1719) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2014
The aroma is light citrus, tangerines and a hint of fresh leaves. The taste is classic American Pale Ale, but maybe a bit on the lower side of everything? A little biscuity, slightly toasted malts with mild pine and vague lemon peels. A pretty dry aftertaste. It’s refreshing, but not the coolest one around.

Garrold (5515) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Clear gold. Thick, lasting, white head. Pale, lager malt aroma. A little fruit salad. Taste is light sweet. Hint of bitter. Clean, fresh palate. Finishes a little dry. Sweet close. Not the tastiest beer, but quite refreshing, and easy drinking.

slowrunner77 (12594) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"a tiny bit better than others in the acme line, but still a slightly below average pale ale. not enough balance in the beer, the hops are ok, but they have no other presence to play off of."

ramboraffe (2257) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
On tap. Hazy amber with white head. Smell is caramel and grass. Taste is caramel, fruit and grass. Semi sweet with low bitterness and low carbonation.

PsychoGunnar (201) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Dark amber, ephemeral foam. Smells faintly of flowers, bread and american hops. Tastes surprisingly sweet and feels equally surprisingly vinous; tastes of toffee, artificial-like sweeteners, rock candy and a bit of wood. The alcohol is certainly also present, and becomes overdominating the aftertaste. Nevertheless an enjoyable beer.
