Firestone Walker Brewing Company Pale 31 California Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Firestone Walker Brewing Company Pale 31 California Pale Ale.
From the Firestone Walker Brewing Company website: “A tribute to our home state of California – the 31st to be added to the Union. Beautiful floral and citrus hop aromas greet the nose with undertones of lightly toasted malt. Crisp pale and crystal malts offer a hint of sweetness. Subtle hop bitterness offers a refreshing finish. Perfect for a sunny California day at the beach or BBQ with friends, Pale 31 represents the bold yet approachable spirit that embodies our state.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, tropical, biscuit and caramel malts and a touch sweet.
Taste: Citrus and tropical hop notes, light malts – biscuity and sweet with just a hint of caramel.
Overall: Supremely drinkable, Firestone Walker Brewing Company Pale 31 California Pale Ale is excellent. This 4.9% ABV offering is a solid Pale Ale and one that I’ll certainly pick up again.
