A pretty fantastic pale ale. Light and golden with a decent head. Light and crisp on the palate. Floral aroma, some citrus, an understated bready base, and some hints of mint.

MarcoDL (2239) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Polaris is a herbal hop. Bitter and aromatic, with a spicy edge. Since this pale ale is single hop, the beer tastes like this as well. Nice, but not my favorite hop.

javiercrasher (167) - Granada, SPAIN - JUN 21, 2014
De color naranja coronada por una buena capa de espuma blanca. Suave aroma a cítricos. Buen cuerpo, oleosa y gasificación media. En boca un poquito herbal, cítrica y con final amargo y seco. Un poco por debajo del nivel habitual de The Kernel.
