COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boat Beer is designed to be complex enough to merit drinking a few without being crippled by alcohol. Kolsch yeast and German malts are combined to be crisp and refreshing, while a generous amount of American hops have been added to keep it remarkable. Expect it to dance out of the glass with a whack of grapefruit and open into a crisp, stony tangle of white and yellow fruit with pine and moss notes. An IPA for everyday drinking, drink boat beer when you are thirsty from softball, fishing, or explaining why your team is best.

Gift tall boy from Sherm1061...thanks! Can pours a foggy yellow with moderate white head. Nose is blend of a hoppy citrus with a little sour funk. Taste blends the mild bitterness of the hops with the sour. Very pleasant and mild. Definitely a session-able ale. Excellent

Light golden color, a little hazy, moderate white head. Tangerine, grapefruit, and mango. Very slight sweetness that vanishes quickly. Fairly crisp and refreshing, light-bodied, and lively.
