Pale 31 pours a clear honey yellow with a moderate sized creamy head on top. The foam fades away quickly leaving behind lots of spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma has nice sweet malt notes with some citrus hop mixed in. Notes of lemon and pine plus a touch of honey and cereal malt.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth and creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor is more sweet than bitter. Cereal malt, honey and a little biscuit along with a touch of light fruit (mango?) are balanced with lemon citrus and a little pine. It finishes with a mild grassy bitterness. Once gone the honey and grass lingers on the palate.

An easy drinking beer that leans sweet. It could use a little more bitterness to balance it out.
