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.

This is a solid drinking brew. I like the brand flake nose and flavor that is present and the lagerish taste is not overwhelming but complements the beer on the finish.

Mild aroma of sweet bread, and notes of some fruit zest. Nice golden color with a thin white head. Crisp malt up front. Sweet bread notes mixed with a mild bitteness that mixes well. Nice example of a Kolsch. Finishes with some lingering bitteness. Refreshing.

Gold pour with slight haze. Nose is light and fruity with some light maltiness. Flavor is cross between wheat ale and hefeweizen with light fruity yeast esters. Okay, but a little different.

It’s good, but there are better in this style. Everything here is average to above average -- nothing exceptional. I’d like a bit more "slipperiness" that usually accompanies this style, in particular.

Bottle pour. Clear golden with small white head. Light malty aroma with hints of floral and fruit. Crisp clean taste with quickly fading fruit aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 The appearance had a clear golden body, some clingy lacing that spiderwebs. The smell had the malts, light hops, slightly grainy, just a bit of spice, but not long lasting as the smell quickly fades altogether. The taste was mainly sweet, sticky sweet aftertaste, fading sweet finish. On the palate, it sits light, sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and for me. Overall, good for a kolsch styled beer, though a weaker smell than most I’ve had, might have again.

Pours a light gold color with light white head. Aroma has floral, fruits, and some malt notes. Follows onto the palate. Finishes with some grassy hop notes.
