56 Brewing Polonaise APA (5.4% alcohol by volume, 38 International Bittering Units) is an American Pale Ale. Biscuit, spice and citrus aromas are fairly evening balanced with a trace of fruit in the bakcground. It pours copper amber with a slight haze under a 2" cream colored foam collar with good retention. It tastes like fruit, light biscuit, and light peach. Hop bitterness is medium and is balanced by a hint of caramel and a touch of iced tea flavor. The body and carbonation are medium. I rate this full flavored, very drinkable American Pale Ale 83.
