COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Poleeko Pale Ale is an exceptionally flavorful and well-balanced beer. With a bright, citrus hop profile and mild malt flavors reminiscent of English biscuits, the aromas of pink grapefruit and lemon zest compliment the brisk, balanced finish to create a truly refined American Pale Ale.

MALTS: Pale Two-Row, Crystal (40L)
HOPS: Columbus, Nugget, Cascade

Note: Formerly Poleeko Gold Pale Ale.

RSRIZZO (1949) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Had on 7/30/2001. Aroma is a fresh hop scent that seems to have come from dry hopping. Color is a medium gold with very good carbonation and head. Taste is mild with a heavy metallic taste. Starting with a smooth medium body it goes down easy. There isn’t much malt flavor in it and as the finish comes on with a good bitterness the hop flavor turns to a strong metallic taste. I can drink it but the only things about it that are like a Pale Ale are the aroma and the bitterness.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2007
Pours a pale yellow copper color with a nice frothy white head. Fruity, slightly caramelly nose with a hint of malt. Nise rounded finish on the bready malty side. Good session brew.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Nice clearish honey gold pour to it, with a medium white head. Smell is of fruity hops, with a sweet piney touch to it as well. Smell turns somewhat towards honey soaked graininess as it warms. Taste included a nice amount of sweetness initially with a perfectly carbonated good crisp bit to it. Refreshing, and has a good sweet backing with a perfect amount of hops in the finish for a pale, I think. Definitely better than average, but not the most robust flavor. Still, quite better than average for the style, and one I wish were available locally.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Pours a lightly hazy amber with a frothy ivory head. Grapefruit, flowers and a light pine are backed by a nice malt aroma. Medium-bodied and slick with a nice bitter end. Caramel malt up front with citric (grapefruit), floral and faint piny hops taking over until the bitter end. This is a very tasty and well balanced APA. Thanks for sharing this one Don!

Draft at Dewey’s Pizza in Clifton. Light amber color, ample head with good retention, mild hoppy/ citrus aroma, sensation of assertive but not overbearing hops with a hint of grapefruit coating the tongue like pure maple syrup on pancakes. Decent brew.
