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.

Peach/pear zing with a little pine aroma. Clear golden color with thin white head. Pine start with some zing on the end of the tongue and a bit of bitter copper aftertaste. Pretty good for the price. I would take it disc golfing with me.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle on Alaskan Airlines flight #2, first class perk, yay. Clear yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of slightly peppery citrus. Taste is light citrus and straw. Not bad.

pictoman (427) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
Poured from 355mL bottle. Clear medium yellow with a little white head. Wheat aroma with a very light hint of honey and spice. Predominantly grainy flavour with little else to support it. Light texture and not much of a finish.

Doesn't smell the best but tastes alright. Alaskan Summer could be a new favorite with a few tweaks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Drinkable summer brew. Some nice citrus notes. Malts are very prevalent. Sweet and citrus. Nothing special but could do worse

nealblind (660) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAY 26, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013 Clear orange yellow. slight white head. smells of tartness (lemons) and buttery bread. Tastes quite bitter medicinal hoppy. Not very sweet at all though it’s slightly honey flavored. also slightly briny. astringent mouthfeel - a bit too carbonated.
