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.

Aroma is a nice fresh beer at first, but then with a second whiff - medicinal. Flavor has some crispness from carbonation, but also some heavy malt sweetness that’s a bit out of place. Color is darker than traditional Kolsch. Ok beer.

On tap in Sitka. Pours a golden color with white head. Straw, grainy, slight earthy, husk aromas. Straw, grainy, earthy flavors. Nothing mind blowing, not as good as I remembered from 8 years ago

Popoff91 (85) - Oregon, USA - MAY 29, 2016
12-ounce bottle in a pint glass. Pours dark amber. Not bad; a little heavier than I think of for a "Summer" ale, but good nonetheless.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Smoothsippin (48) - Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours a dark golden with a white head. Earthy aroma. Mildly sweet/ bittersweet into the mouth and on the swallow. Lingering finish, pleasantly so. Refreshing and a decent summer beer. Not bad for the kolsch style.

milewide (2012) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Bland, even for the style. Clear golden color. Modest head. No alcohol evident. Average body.

chucklemation (1319) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Pours a transparent gold with a thin, long-lasting white head. Aroma is sweet bread and slight citrus hops. Flavor is very sweet bread malts. Has a crisp body. Nothing too remarkable, but still decent.
