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.

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.

Darker yellow color and spicy floral hops aroma. Sweet bread taste with light and somewhat sticky mouth feel and carbonation. Fairly clean and refreshing finish.

Onslow (1318) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear amber yellow brew with white head that settles down to a steady scrum. Aroma of light caramel with mild hops. Taste is light caramel up front iwth a late blooming mild bitter at the finish. Ends a little sour with a bit of lingering sweetness. Very enjoyable and refreshing.

I’ll be the first to rate this at a non airport venue, which funny, I have to go there tonight. Draft pour pint at the Safe. Pours an amber color with a thin patchy head. Rich malt flavor with a sweet finish. Not typical for the style for sure. Overall not bad.

furthur (656) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle on airplane, clear orangy amber, frothy white head faded. Aroma is richly malty and lightly fruity. Taste is pale malt, a touch of citrus, and yeasty dough. Finish just touched bitter. Palate is light, carbonation is, yes, soft and full. Not bad.

portableparty (2257) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Clear golden pour with a white foamy head. Aroma has a subtle lemongrass and biscuit. Taste had more lemongrass biscuit malt and slight bitterness. Palate is thin crisp and buttery (like all Alaskan brews in my opinion)

Aroma: grain and cereal malts, light floral hops. Appearance: clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: mild bitters continue, very grainy, some grass and floral hops, soft carbonation. Overall: OK Koelsch, nothing too exciting though. Bottle aboard Alaskan Airlines, SEA-ANC.

On tap on the ferry to Bremington. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of biscuit and bread with a bit of straw underlying. Flavor is mainly straw and grain with a slight crispness.
