Bottle. Betterthan the amber. But still pretty timid and thin, diluted maltyness, lemon, melon, not many hops. No big deal, easy to drink.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not bad but not real flavorful. First impression is it’s not very good. It taste similar to the Full Sail Pale Ale, which seemed a bit strong and had too much alcohol flavor with no real character that spoke to me. I’ve got 5 more bottles to nurse the rest of the week maybe the taste will improve. :)

My first Alaskan (it’s my frist time in Cali). Fruity and slick, is the way i can describe it- a good beer- with everything I expected from an Alaskan brew (I’ve been hearing many good things)

Rich golden colour and a thin white head. Softly carbonated. Fruity aroma with spicy noble hops apparent. Light fruity flavour (cherry, berry) and excellent malt/hop balance with some bitterness and a very rich mouthfeel.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not much head out of the bottle. Really good clean flavor. Hoppy, citrusy, tastes fresh. Theres no other way to explain it. Comparison to other Kolsh I’ve had, I like this better than GI Summertime. Another very good product from Alaskan. Need to get up there so I can sample the rest of their offerings.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a dark golden hue with a quickly subsiding white head. Remained bubbly throughout. Light starchy aroma. Smooth on the tongue, supremely malty and cereal-based. Not bad; bit thick for a Koelsch, but good.

Delicious slightyly sweet caramel flavor, with light hints of citrus. Very light and refreshing, excellent summer brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice gold with a head of white, creamy that is. Lace and high levels of carbonation. Very refreshing aroma of tart fruits, light hops and malt. Yeast and citrus floating around as well. Nice flavors of sweet malts, tart fruits, lemon tartness maybe, and some bittering hops. A bit earthy. Light and relaxing palate, medium body, and a dry, tart finish.

This was a nice surprise! My first Kolsch...
aroma is awesome, apples and pineapple, and some other fruity smells. Looks like carbonated apple juice with a tiny head. Nice fruity taste, mild hops, a little sweet. Surprisingly good.
