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.

poisoneddwarf (2639) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 17, 2013
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Bottled on 7/31/12. Shit, just noticed that. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium white lacy head. Nice citrusy nose; I’m also getting SweeTarts and some age after it sits for a few minutes. Tastes a little past its prime. I really wish I would have noticed that born on date before my purchase. It’s a little sweet and a little bitter. Other than the noticeable age, this tastes pretty clean. Highly carbonated and light-bodied. Let me re-rate a fresher version of this when I get a chance.

Piwo złote, klarowne. Pian z poczatku wysoka wysoka, szybko redukuje się do koronki, ładnie lepi szkło. W aromacie trawa, las, miód, karmel. W smaku ziołowa goryczka, trwała, zelegająca. Średnia pełnia. Niskie wysycenie.

Bright gold. Not much head. Nice biscuity pale malts, bitter, mellow herbal hop. Tasty, balanced, quality apa.

Frothmeister (829) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2017
12 fl oz can. Pours a clear pale golden hue with an off-white head. Resinous aromas with underlying peach, green tea, and faint burnt sugar. Taste wise, lots of grapefruit, passion fruit, orange zest, light resinous notes and light caramel that lead into mineral notes, light malt, papaya, and citrus pith bitterness. This is a top notch -5%er.

jinroh (2268) - ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2017
Pours clear golden, white foam on top at first, leaves some lacing, coming down overall. Fresh fruity zesty hop nose, getting some oranges, other tropical fruits. Feels very fresh. Taste is clean, citrus and lemon peels in taste, bit resiny. Tastes actually more like session IPA, which it basically is. Nice long bitter linger, good balance and dry, drinkable clean beer.

Muggus69 (2723) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2017
355mL bottle from Carwyn Cellars. Bottle 04/03/17 Pale gold beer, dense white foam. Reasonable nose - honeyed, pale caramel malts, orange peel & pine sap hop, touch of grass. Medium body, some texture to chew on, drops away a touch on the finish. Flavour is probably a bit less intense than I was hoping - citrus & pine in a slight measure, more malty than anything, bitterness a touch restrained. Maybe I should be looking for a fresher beer? Very approachable overall, but lacking on the finish.

3.8
Leini (2079) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2017
355ml bottle. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Grapefruit dominatin, followed by some caramel, bread and minerals. Uncomplicated, straight forward well made.

3.4
ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - AUG 3, 2017
355ml bottle. Clear golden with a small white head. Malty, citrus and floral.
