3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
35.5cl bottle at home (15 X 2015). Amber to orange coloured pale ale, a bit cloudy but vivid, and a most beautiful, tick and creamy white collar. Grassy and malt flavours with some dust welcome the taste. The mouthfeel is quite round and medium bodied. This lovely hopped Anderson Valley Poleeko Pale Ale has keen features of pinewood, herbs and mango. There is some malty dust in the taste too. The ending has that lovely American bitterness, not too long and not that sharp. A great drinker, a genuine American pale ale (APA), and far more fuller bodied than expected.

Pours a golden colour. Aromas of bubblegum and sweet malts. A bit of hop presence but this is mostly about the grains and the malts. Nice. But not overly exciting

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Een mooi, troebel oranje gekleurd bier met een stevige kraag. De geuren van vruchten zoals citroen, mango en zure appelen komen al vrij bij het openmaken van de fles. Een subtiele bitterheid zit in de smaak, tezamen met het fruitige, zoals grapefruit. Lekkere, rustige bittere nasmaak.
A nice, cloudy, orange beer with a firm layer of foam. The aroma’s from lemon, mango and sour apples are picked up by the nose, as soon as the bottle has been opened. It has a subtile bitter taste, together the fruity bit. Like a grapefruit. A calm, nice bitter aftertaste.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance is its best: amber with a nice white head. Unfortunately the rest isn’t even comparable: plain malty aroma and taste, just some hints of fruits and hops. Mediocre.

Super simple APA, even bit boring. Moderate to light maltiness, some citrusy hops, grapefruit, bit grassy. Light sweetness with moderate dull bitterness. Drinkable, but one time try
