On tap at Far Bar in Little Tokyo (downtown Los Angeles). Clean, clear, crisp, hoppy and sessionable. iammatt (13) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours a clear gold with a white head that lingers with plenty of lace. Smell is pine and hay. Nice citrusy hop bite that quickly smooths out leaving behind fruit and a touch of malty sweetness. A favorite of mine, perfect session APA @ 4.9% mpf (2) - GERMANY - SEP 4, 2013 does not count
Bottle. Bought this in our local supermarket (Globus) here in Germany. It was imported through BraufactuM Frankfurt.
Very nice ale with floral hop notes. Love this for me new discovery. Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2013
Orange-golden and clear with a medium creamy head. Aroma of citrus/grapefruit, tropical fruits (pineapple, melon), spices (maybe cinnamon, maybe a little vanilla), maybe almonds. Tastes very fruity as described, decent bitterness, floral and resiny hop-qualities. Bitter and a little sweet ending with a good moutfeel. goochflies (50) - Kaiserstuhl, SWITZERLAND - JAN 11, 2014
What a great California Pale Ale.... Citrus, floral, hoppy aroma, lovely medium body with a superb dry finish. From sniff to swallow, nothing bad to say about this beer. Pure pleasure...

Wirklich herrlich fruchtige Note, in der Nase Papaya, Mango, Ananas. Im Trunk setzen sich die Aromen fort, sehr weich aufeinander abgestimmt, leichte Süße. Im Abgang dann herb, bitter, aber nicht zu krass. Sehr rundes Ale, sehr sorgfältig abgestimmt. Einfach lecker! MetalNHopHead (2018) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Like many of Firestone Walker’s beautifully hoppy beers, Pale 31 gives a nod to the English style. One place it can be seen is with this beer’s use of Maris Otter, which gives a biscuit-like backbone to this beer’s balance. Pale 31 pours a golden shade. Floral aromatics and flavors of lemongrass, grapefruit zest, mango, orange, and black pepper. Bright and medium-bodied, this beer is easy to put away. Definitely a solid example of what Firestone Walker is all about. Muskelbiber (13) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2016
Als Aktion im Supermarkt eingekauft. Sehr leckeres pale ale. Sanfter Hopfen Geschmack und Geruch beim Öffnen. GMCC2181 (1611) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle shared by robert at SL. Drank on April 20th. Light golden yellow color. Ok head. Light aroma of hops... Taste wise this is the best pale ale I have ever tasted... Nice hoppy taste. If some one told me this was an IPA I would of believed them. It had a nice hop bite to it. Light in texture. Really easy to drink. Great beer, that could be drank any where at any time. ****update**** picked up a sixer for my self. This beer is the sh!t... Looks like your typical crappy macro.... but really great taste for a pale ale. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2010
