Being spoiled on the Central Coast, I must say that this a lighter, sessionable Pale Ale that is absolutely fabulous!

Is it the best Pale Ale in all creation? mmm?....even though it took a Gold at the GABF a few years back? its great!

get it on tap in Paso Robles or Buellton and see what's up....most people (9 out of 10) choose FW's DBA over Pale 31...its not a hop head's dream...its much more subtle than that...

I guess I am the exception....Pale 31 has a complexity that Mission St. Pale Ale lacks (perhaps its the DBA blended in?)....

This is delicious for days....bottle is good, on tap is the best!
