Long Trail Pollenator

Long Trail Pollenator

Critical Information:

  • 4.6% ABV
  • English Pale Ale

My Experience:

– POUR

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. It has an orange glow to it with lots of bubbles and an off-white head.

– SMELL

It has a nutty, caramel malt aroma. Is there also some grape in there? It reminds me more of an autumn beer than a spring one.

– TASTE

It starts with some crisp hops and finishes with some sour, floral malt flavors. It has a pretty light body as well.

– FOOD PAIRING

Hurray, it’s finally spring! No more bundling up to walk the dog. This beer calls for some outdoor grilled BBQ chicken. Has to be the thick BBQ sauce (that’s Memphis right??).

– OVERALL THOUGHTS

I’m just not that into it. No fun flavors were present and the “usual” beer flavors associated with a beer weren’t good enough for me to recommend or buy again.

Score: 2/10
