Pale 31

 
RATING
97

Any beer that takes home gold medals at the World Beer Cup (2004 and 2006) and Great American Beer Festival (2007 and 2008) is certainly worthy of a beer enthusiast's attention. Pouring very clear and gold, this brew is topped with a fluffy, white head. Pine and grapefruit scents rush out of the glass ahead of the light, fresh-baked-bread malt character, coalescing in a clean, crisp aroma. The taste is compartmentalized: Distinct breadiness washes over the tongue first, but quickly disappears; then, the hops jump in with sturdy citrus flavors plus subtle pine and flowery notes. With a medium body, low alcohol, and clean, dry finish, this beer has no rough edges.
