Very smooth and refreshing pale ale. Nice hoppy finish, but not so overwhelming that those who are not fans of uber-hopped pale ales won’t still enjoy. Has a nice honey lemon zest to the palate with a mellow finish.
Exremely drinkable and friendly. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2010

Acme California Pale Ale has a medium, off-white head and a cloudy, orange-golden appearance. Lacing is decent. Aroma is of citrus, wood, and a sharp sweetness. The taste is a nice balance of barley malt, hop spice, and earth. Mouth-feel is surprisingly light and watery. Acme Pale Ale finishes refreshing. This is a very enjoyable beer. Another winner from North Coast Brewing.

Poured from a bottle into a globe glass. I’m sure a lot of people on here won’t like this beer - in their opinion it’s too normal, too few IBUs, too easy to drink, too little ABV for most beer nerds’ "extreme" taste. However, I like this beer. I will admit it’s pretty unremarkable, but when you want the craft beer equivalent of a "light" beer this is a perfect example. Easy to drink, tastes good, has flavor but doesn’t overwhelm you.
