Anderson Valley: Poleeko Pale Ale

Toby's Beer Reviews

From the Brewery: IMG_2558

“Refined.  Our Poleeko Pale Ale is an exceptionally flavorful and well balanced beer.  With a bright, citrusy hop profile and mild maltiness reminiscent of English biscuits, the aromas of pink grapefruit and lemon zest compliment the brisk, balanced finish to create a truly one-of-a-kind American pale ale.” 5.0% ABV American Pale Ale

Purchased from BevMo in Fresno, California.

The Pour: IMG_2559

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a nonic glass. The color is a slightly hazy golden yellow, with a hint of an orange hue. The head is slightly off-white and foamy. Light carbonation is visible.

The Nose: IMG_2560

Mild citrus hops, both grapefruit and lemon. I also get a light malt and honeyed sweetness, as well as a small bit of grassy earthiness. A sour aroma undertone is also present.

The Mouth: IMG_2562

Medium thin bodied, but slightly thicker than I would have guessed at just 5% ABV…
