The style of our summer ale is traditionally European, similar to a German kolsch: full bodied with a spicy hop tang and a rich, crystal clear golden color. Alcohol content is approximately 6% by volume.
Ingredients: Two row English malt (clarity, wheat and caramalt); Magnum, Tettnang and Saaz hops.

12oz bottle 3/13/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-40į in English Pint-Pours a medium golden with a decent sized white head. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste of the same with a little banana. This light bodied brew would fit in perfect on a hot summer day.

Metalchopz (2596) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Purchased in their mixed pack on a trip to Maine. Pours a clean amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and creamy lacing. Hoppy nose with some cereal malts and even banana. Floral hop taste at first with some nice grain malts in the finish. Fruity hints lingers. A nice, refreshing but heavier ale.

This is not a bad beer. Itís lightweight, easy on the palatte and goes down easy. I would serve this to any crowd at a good barbecue. Itís not overwhelming or particularly distinctive in any area, but itís not forgettable either. It is worth a shot if you havenít tried it.

Bottle. Nose light and pale, lightly grainy but golden malt with a squirt of citrus and dusting of candy. Pours clear amber leaning into copper, short beige head. Very crisp, refreshing full body has caramel and earth, faint cardboard, amber and lightly toasted Vienna-style malts, mild fruit behind the light earth, light chalk, more orange citrus with fainter lemon and grapefruit. A lot more complex than expected, itís also clean and fresh, and hit the spot.

Tap at a random bar in Boothbay. Light orange. Some hops in the aroma and a little bitterness in the flavor. Seems too bitter for a comparison to kolsch.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a clear golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies, slight foamy lacing and rings are left in the wake. The smell had malts and the hops with a bit of citrus in the background. There is a slight biscuity smell ever so slightly in the background. The taste was pretty much the same as the smell with a slight hop bite in the finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium with moderate carbonation on the tongue. Overall, this is a solid brew by Gearyís that I would come back to.
