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

Note: Formerly Poleeko Gold Pale Ale.

Anderson Valley Poleeko Gold Pale Ale pours to bright, golden color, with a tall bright white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent, with lots of lemon/grapefruit hop aromas which dominate. The palate is firm, with lots of good, crisp, biscuity pale malt flavor, with a nice under tone of citrus hop flavor. It fiishes with more good pale malt flavor up front, then ends with a zesty citrus hop bite that lingers. Well done APA, with good hop aromas, pale malt flavor, and hop bitterness. A nice aperitif beer, and one that would match well with cold salads and sea food dishes.

The body is a clear gold. The hops seem almost noble in the aroma, but I canít decide if they really are. The malt is very light and fairly dry leaving the beer to come across bitter and not quite balanced.

Pour is a clear yellow with a huge white head! This sucker is coming over my glass and i ever poured it right. Anyway, aroma is doughy and hoppy. Flavor is slightly hoppy and crisp. An average pale ale by a great brewer.

Bottle. Rating #200 -An Anderson rated by an Anderson. Raw orange gold, translicent, with a film-head. Smells vaguely citrus, very ripe, some malt-spice notes. Immediate impression is of dryness, crispness, hop and malt detectable, not sticky or even really sweet at all unlike many APAs Iíve had recently. Itís a refreshing change of pace even though I like a hint of sugar. This is as a result more notably bitter, but not in a bad way, more like a fresh unsweetened grapefruit. medium to light bodied and drinkable, this would be excellent on a hot summer day. Grapefruit finish. Not bad, although because these people are Andersons, I expected this to be the best beer ever. Oh well.

Light yellow fine beaded head. Aroma is heavy berries and floral. Nice dry hopping. Flavor is dominated by hops, starting citrus piney and fading quickly to flowers and berries. Smooth and crisp with a long lingering bitter. Very drinkable.

A bit creamy for my liking. Not as much hops as I like. Quite surprised that I disliked this one.

12 oz bottle imbibed in a hotel room in Sandusky, OH. Clear gold with a thick, fluffy head and nice lacing...lovely biscuity-citrusy aroma with some interesting green tea notes--like spicy cookies...creamy body, honeyish, lightly fruity, turning quite dry and crisp to finish...full but not heavy mouthfeel with perfect carbonation....pretty damn good.

Bottle (12oz). Poured slightly hazy yellow with a small fizzy head. Aroma of mild resiny rich hops, tangy lemon juice, light roast malt and rye toast. Taste is of UK funky hops, light roast malt, orange pekoe tea, orange juice and a long pungent bitter finish. Mouthfeel dry with an average body - nice session pint - really liked this, good blend of UK ESB and west coast PA styles.

I am wondering if this bottle was past its prime. Aroma was mild, but i picked up typical citrus hops. Pours golden, with white fizzy head. Flavor is dry, grassy, and I picked up some skunk. Texture is a tad watery. Finish is also dry with a crisp hoppy finish. This did not impress me much, but I want to get a fresh bottle since I got this in a mix a six, which usually means "clearance, this crap has been here too long"
