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.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
12oz bottle -

I have to admit that this stape in my fridge during the warmer months. Why it’s not been rated til now is odd. It’s just a light, semi-hoppy, full of flavor, easy quaffing beer that’s always a nice price $7-8 a sixer.

Aroma is really floral. It’s easy to forget about the hops and think this thing was infused with some herbs, petals or fruit, because it has such a unique aroma for a pale ale. Flavor had some medium sweetness to it, keeping things very well balanced with the woody hops. There’s a zing of fresh hop right at the end of the swallow that’s easy to notice and quite welcome. Phenomenal beer for the Summer time weather.

JorgeLee (2278) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2018
Bottle, Beer52. Light golden colour, white foam. Slightly bready malts, quite dry. Medium slightly non-descript hoppy feel. Some bitterness, not strong. Ok, a bit safe and ordinary.

berkshirejohn (6762) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2018
12oz bottle from Beer52.com. A pale amber pour with a thick cream head and lively carbonation; a pleasant crisp floral aroma with a hint of citrus; a smooth malty body with a light floral bitterness; and a biscuity finish. Clean and refreshing.

Bullit (4803) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2018

biologynbeer (6) - - JAN 11, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2018 Purchased from costco. Bottled 12/07/17. Poured from bottle into pint glass. Pours golden yellow with relatively thin head but persistent lacing. Aroma - Lots of dank. Some pine and citrus. Taste - Light malts, light bitterness that dissipates quickly, lemon citrus and yeast on the back end, bitterness returns for a balanced finished, refreshing and very drinkable Texture - Very light and refreshing Overall - Very drinkable pale ale with unbelievably dank aroma for the mild bitterness. This would be a good starter beer for someone who doesn’t love APA/IPAs. It would also be a great summer beer

spacecube (1810) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2018
Bottle, clear golden brown pour, small white head. Aroma is light caramel malts, pine and grapefruit hop, light bodied, slightly oily palate drying to a pleasant balanced finish with a little bitterness. Carbonation is soft.

3.6
Benters (137) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden colour with minimal head retention after a minute or so. Aromas are big floral and citrus New World Hops, big piney hop hit. Taste has some fruitiness and caramel notes but is dominated by quite an assertive piney hop bitterness. A beer full of flavour but lacks a bit of balance from malt sweetness for my taste.

brownaler (742) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Bready malts present in the body with a toasty finish. Great beer by Firestone.

Miły (109) - Kielce, POLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Wygląd: Barwa blado złota z drobnopęcherzykową pianą złamanej bieli, początkowo lekko wychodzącą z butelki opada do kożucha pozostawiając lacing. Aromat: Cytrusy w szczególności cytryna, zest cytryny, pomarańcz, mandarynka, min. słodki grejpfrut z owocami tropikalnymi (słodkimi) jak mango, brzoskwinia; multiwitamina. Delikatna słodowość chlebowa. Trochę żywicy, lasu i iglaków. Smak: Cytrusy i owoce tropikalne podobnie jak w aromacie, lekko kwiatowe, trochę lasu i żywicy, niewielka ilość słodowej chlebowości i nuta karmelu. Goryczka niziutka i krótka, może minimalnie ściągająca, cytrusowa. Wysycenie dość wysokie, treściwość niska podbita przez nagazowanie. Finisz żywiczno - cytrusowy, lekko trawiasty. Aromat i smak jest lekki, nic nie atakuje, pijalne. Bottle on 22.11.16

3.5
panda_brewmaster (127) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 Hoppy, crisp and lively carbonated. Bitterness overpowers the pale malt sweetness. Quite average.

2.9
matstrange (263) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Distinctly average. Nice and easy to drink session IPA, even quite refreshing. But everything is dialled down. Weak hop aroma and flavour, thin head and only a little citrus flavour.
