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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear golden orange color. Head was white and reduced to a thin lasting film. Smelled of light flowery hops and malty caramel with a whiff of soy sauce. Dry on the tongue. Flavor was of biscuity malt and subdued apricot. So so.

hapjydeuce (996) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 23, 2007
yellow color on the pour, transparent with a thin and somewhat disappointing head. Slightly hoppy aroma, mostly lighter malts and pepper. Just your average pale ale flavor,with the background citrus and bitter finish, but very subdued dry alcohol end. Good thirst quencher, nothing special by any means.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - APR 19, 2007
tap- did not care for this at all, which is surprising considering I like their other beers. Yellow in color, white head, aroma is slightly spicy, smells and tastes of alcohol and tannins, weird veggie taste as well. Not good.

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2007
My Bottom Line:
The quenching citrus fruit character and spicy, resinous hop finish of this very drinkable American Pale Ale unite in a comfortable body lifted by smooth carbonation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy golden amber.
-Sandy, wooden notes come from the expressive hops.
-Carbonation and maltiness combine to create a creamy, relaxed mouthfeel.
-The overall flavor profile is rather well balanced.
-Malts provide more body than flavor, but do manage to draw delicate toffee and straw impressions on the tongue.

Bottle; no date.

on tap at brewery: nice fresh hop nose, slightly grassy. Pale gold-amber color, tall creamy head. Light citrusy malt, tight dry bitter in the back of the mouth. Concentrated hop taste but not overpowering. Crisp, clean, excellent PA:

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Good ale overall. Drank one down on a hot day while moving. Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice flakey white head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity. Likewise for the flavor with a decent dry lingering aftertaste. Probably wont be my last one of these.
