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.

Initial phenolic aroma of clove and a little banana quickly dissipated to a mild grain/malt aroma with slight DMS aroma detectable. Beer poured with a golden color with a very fine head and no lace. Several minutes after pouring, a mixture of medium and a few large bubbles continued to rise up through the glass. Flavor was heavier than other Kölsch beers I’ve tried: more like a kristalweizen than a Kölsch. A pleasant flavor, but I’m not sure this conforms to the style. Palate was a little thin and fizzy. Not a bad beer, but falls short of other offerings I’ve had from Alaskan Brewing.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Malty sweet, herbal, grassy aroma. Lemon zest, light caramel malt flavors. Unpleasant dryness at the finish produces a coating feeling on my tongue. Not bad, but coming from Alaskan brewing I had higher expectations.

Beautiful golden ale look. Pours easily with a slight head. Perfect warm weather beer. A little sweet with some tart, citrusy taste.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Pours a dark golden color with a small white head. Aroma is citrus lemon and a bit of malty sweet. Flavor is a mild malt with a bit of lemon and a metallic taste. Watery mouthfeel but refreshing. Good session beer.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Pours with a golden-orange body topped by a thin to medium thick head with some lacing. The aroma and flavor are slightly sweet and malty with a grassy bitterness. Light bodied and smooth.

This Kolsch-style ale was quite a let down, very flat and watery with a big metallic finish. Pours clear orange with a medium white head. Malts are light with a slight fruitiness and mild hopping in the finish. This brew finishes with a big metallic note and a slightly tart flavor that lingers in the aftertaste.

Thanks to Buck Dich for this one. Pours dark straw with medium white head. Aroma of malt, some hopcit. Tastes malty, with a firm honey element, some hopcit, and a smooth finish. Solid.

steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Pours deep golden color with dissapating white head. Nose is faint of bready, grassy mild maltiness. Flavor is mild bitterness with almost a grainy, straw-like character. Not bad, however I probably wouldn’t get this one again.

Faint matl nose. Clear light amber colour, with small head. malt taste that fades to yield a yeasty after taste. spotty lace
