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.

Very orange pour....unusual. The flavor is of hops, but strange ones at that...slightly citrusy but kind of musky. The malt has low levels of cane sugar with just a hint of unpleasant bitterness. These Acme beers seem just a bit below the quality of what North Coast is capable of, but these are interesting in their own right.

Gold pour with minimal head. Aroma of malt, hopcit, some fruit. Tastes malty, with hopcit, slight fruit. Nothing special, but not bad.

A cloudy deep golden color along the lines of apple juice. Aroma show some light hoppiness and citrus. The flavor is all hops except for a faint taste of grapefruit. Lighter in flavor than a Bass ale this didnt impress.

Bottle @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Plenty of butterscotch in this bottle. Maybe an old bottle as the price was reduced... Some papery notes as well, indicating oxidation. Quite sweet and malty for an american ale, in my oppinion.

Theres some doughy, malty sweetness in the nose, a bit of orange/citrus; lively carbonation; simple mild crystal malt flavor with a detracting metallicness; slight bittering; generally unexiting and disappointing.

IndianaRed (4418) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Bottle Pours a slightly hazy light amber. Fluffy off white head Sweet light malts mostly in the aroma. Flavor is similar. Light, pale and fairly sweet. I suppose it is quite drinkable, esp for those who are not ken of bitter hoppy ales. Lacking substance though esp considering its nearly complete absence of a decent hops componant.

Blah. Im looking for more in my beer. This is a very light with a sweet taste that didnt help matters. Id just assume give the rest of these away. Wait...I did.

This bottled brew poured a small sized head of off-white colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated hazy brown colored body. The aroma was mild malty hoppy pale ale like notes. The mouth feel was tingly yet smooth with a mild hoppy finish. The flavor contained notes of mild caramel with malt and a mild hop content.

Light, malty, boring beer. Nothing of note in this one. Grabbed it in Harris Teeter in Carborro because it was one of about four beers on the racks I hadnt tried. Next time Ill just grab another six of Sierra Nevada.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Poured cloudy light amber with a good head and good lacing. Flavor is malty with a strong metalic finish and palate. The metalic finish made this a beer that I would not buy again.
