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.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2008
Draft at Pizza Port, Carlsbad. A light golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of fruit, peaches, and oranges, as well as notes of vitamin pills. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of peaches and citrus, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is thin. Boring.

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2010
Bottled
Hazy orange color, small white head. Grainy, slightly bready and lemony aroma. Lemony, light lemon, a bit grainy. A bit too bready and American hoppy for being "a real kölsch".

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Light amber, not much head. Malty and slightly fruity character. More fruity budweiser taste with malts and high gravity-ish esters. A little heavier than a macro but that’s about it.

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.
