Flat poor with no head and very little lacing. Crisp finish is the best attribute.

My favorite pale ale. No wonder it's won gold medals. Top notch beer, though I am not a fan of too much hoppiness - so if that is what you are looking for, the Poleeko may not fit that bill.

The beer appeared a hazy orange with a light white head that faded to a thin cap and left a little lacing. Citrus hops, nothing more, nothing less. That pretty well covers the taste as well. Certainly expected more balance from an APA. The beer was easy to drink, smooth and finished with a nice bitter aftertaste.

Tasted and acted more like a lager to me. Not much of a hop presence at all. Some sweet malt. But it really tasted like a lager not an ale to me.
