COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DSG (5782) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear golden with a medium white head. Overripe fruits aroma with pear, prickly pear and banana. Sweetish flavor with malt, somewhat bready, fruits, light yeasty hints, and a finish with some spicy hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. OK.

Frank (2863) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2012
This is a sort of pilsner-ish blond ale and pretty good. A little bit fruity but clean overall w/ some nutty malt and a touch of noble hop herbal character. Carbonation is vigorous w/o being biting, which lightens the mouthfeel and keeps it interesting on the palate. This isnít a show stopper but a good beer nonetheless.

Scrapersnbeer (1481) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Aroma i spicy, mildly hoppy, and almost wheaty. Itís dark copper rather than blond. Very activeand effervescent. It has some bitterness to it, but that is countered by a heavy malt presence all around. Some what like kolsch as the brewer suggests. A good backyard beer, too heavy for sessioning.

poured from multiple 12oz bottles - Not your typical summer ale brewed in the U.S., but quite satisfying. Hop notes are embellished compared to other U.S. versions. Nice creaminess and texture, but bitter finish is not altogether pleasant.

Atom (1342) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2012
12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma of caramel, wheat, and pencil shavings. Taste has a nice malt and hop bitterness. Itís hot out and Iím liking this one.

phaleslu (6497) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Draft at Jís Oyster in Portland. Pours a clear amber with a small, just barely off-white head. A little darker than a typical golden/blond ale. Notes of citrus (lemon mostly), sweet and bready malts, wheat, and faint grassy hops. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, refreshing mouthfeel. Very nice, bested expectations.

355ml bottle. Golden colour. Wheaty aroma, but flavour is more bold hops. Unusual for a summer ale.
