Polaris Pale Ale
Pale ale • 5.0% alc/vol
Polaris Pale Ale is brewed with wild-harvested spruce tips, Québec-grown hops and Ontario wheat. This inspired, tasty beer was brewed by Beau's to honour all the deserving artists and albums nominated for the 2016 Polaris Music Prize, and offer a tip of the hat to this uniquely Canadian reward for artistic merit.
Pours a light orange with a frothy white head. The predominantly woodland aroma of spruce also offers subtle notes of citrusy hops. The flavour is mildly peppery and zesty spruce is echoed here too, a medium malt backbone holds it all in place. The finish is clean and snappy.
