Brew Review – Pool Day by Walking Tree

It’s not the space, it’s the quality of the beers.

That’s the main reason why I am confused as to why Walking Tree is not on at least one tap list in every single craft beer serving location in the state of Florida.

On top of the tap room and production facility, they’ve got the team behind that facility to make some fairly fantastic beers.

It’s not every day I get to try those beers. Even though they’re only a few hours from me, they are just out of reach. So if I get North, say Jensen Beach, and I find that they have a beer like Pool Day (Pale Ale, 5.3% ABV, 28 IBU) on tap, I’m going to go for it.

And it’s worth it.

Sometimes the traditional recipe of an American Pale Ale is to still hop it like an IPA and let it be just as bitter. That is not the case here. Pool Day is nice and smooth, with enough bittering to add the flavor of the hops, not so much the alpha acids.

They actually managed to find that beautiful halfway point between the hop bitterness and hop flavor, giving just the kiss of a beautiful citrus and floral hop. But it still maintains a light and refreshing base that is crisp and clean and sweet and just a touch fruity enough to be enjoyable poolside during yet another roastingly hot Florida summer.

It’s one of the things that makes Walking Tree so fantastic and one of the best breweries in the state. It’s a shame that they are just out of reach for me, or else I’d be drinking them a lot more.

Inside, of course. It’s just too hot for a poolside beer drinking session right now.
