COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just when you’ve had enough of winter, we release Alaskan Summer Ale in March. This traditional Kölsch beer is a great way to celebrate warmer weather and more daylight. Its crisp, clean flavor is the perfect complement for crab, halibut, salads and longer days.

Pretty decent for an american Kolsch. Very mild, slight wheaty sweetness. Clear yellow. Tried in Juneau.

(Backlog) 12 oz bottle. Color is straw to golden in color with a light white head. Clear. Smell is floral, fruits, some spices, and malts. Taste is pretty light with some malts, hops, grass, fruits. Pretty easy going.

355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Golden amber colour with a thin wispy head. Easy to drink and a great label.

Poured a clear pale golden colour with a one-finger white foamy head that diminished fairly quickly and laced poorly. Carbonation medium with medium sized bubbles forming trails. Aroma of musty grain and sweet malt but very subdued. Taste sweetish but not much at all. Light body. Smooth, light, clean, crisp and easy to drink. I’m not a kolsch fan but this one is OK.

Pours out a crisp golden color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, just like the taste. Medium carbonation with a standard kind of taste. Perfectly average bit of suds, nothing special but worth the try.

Bottled at Mccarrenn. Yellow pour, standard grain and nothing really that special here for a kolsch. OK overall.

On tap while on vacation in Alaska. I thought this one was pretty good. A nice clean quenching taste.

A kolsch to fit in with the Germans. Light golden straw color with nice snappy malt flavor. Poured into my favorite Fruh stange, only to have the wind knock it over and smash it into a million pieces. But the beer was very good.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly malty with a touch of floral hops. Light pale malt flavor, rather crisp with a very minimal bitterness. Clean finish. Light bodied with soft gentle carbonation. Decent enough, but not a whole lot if character.
