COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale 31 is an ode to our home state of California—the 31st to be named in fact. Beer may not be associated with terroir the way wine is, but we believe that where we’re from impacts how our beers taste. This California Style Pale Ale represents the bold yet approachable spirit that embodies our state. A crisp floral hop aroma precedes a medium-body and clean finish.

385ml bottle (Imported by Braufactum). Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, light orange, very nice. Appearance is pale golden with a light white head. Taste is bitter and light sweet. A very good, however light watery, palate. Light carbonation, very nice dryness. Overall a superb APA.

Bright clear golden yellow color. Pale off white head. Nice hop and wet grass and pine nose. Very clean crisp hop taste. Yum.

It’s odd, but this beer immediately struck me as being too pale for a pale ale of any sort. It’s somewhere between straw and gold; I originally thought it was a blond ale. Aroma is of very floral honey and some grass. Flavor is the same with greater intensity and a dash of additional hop bitterness. It reminds me of a honey ale I brewed with especially flowery Zambezi honey and not much in the way of hops. In the end, it really is quite mild; it also probably shouldn’t be labeled as a "Pale Ale" of any sort without a disclaimer. I was disappointed :(

On tap at Teresa's next door. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a very pale light golden. A few fingers of head and a wee bit o lacing. Mild grassy aroma. Mouthfeel is light but way too carbonated. Taste is grass and bubblegum. A little dirt too. Overall, meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Pint on tap. Bright golden color, decent lacing. Floral hop notes in the aroma, some biscuit, too. Probably one of the best pale ale’s I’ve ever had, not too overly hopped, just right. Just extremely good for the style, medium body, very drinkable.

Originally reivewed: 5/12/09. Pours a cloudy gold with a billowy white head bursting forth. Excellent retention throughout the entire drink, leaving some spotty lacing on the glass edge. Smells of malty biscuits, honey-kissed breads, and slight floral finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Flavor is of buttery bread, sweet candied malts, and finishes with just a touch of hoppy bitterness. With the low ABV and great flavor profile, this has got to be one of the most drinkable APAs I’ve ever had. I could drink these one after the other all summer long. Recommend.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Bomber served in an English pint. Pale yellow-orange color, a touch hazy, and a fluffy white head that disappears quickly. Sweet candy aroma of toffee and pound cake. Mild carbonation, light body. Crisp brew, yet plenty of hops. Mildly bitter finish. Nice APA.

Golden brown body with a heady froth of white bubbles. Aroma is nice. Floral hops softly grace the nose. Taste is recessed for a pale ale, a little too sweet for my liking. Vanilla undermines the palate here. Not a bad beer, but to me, its unbalanced and not drinkable on a repeated basis.

3.7
FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 4, 2007
12oz bottle. Medium orange-yellow color with a small white head. Heavy citrus and pine Cascade hop aromatics. Citric metallic hop flavor dominates. Tinges of crystal malt peer through, provide some balance. Bracing bitterness in the finish, fades quickly to a residual sweetness. Mouthfeel is fairly light, somewhat dry.
