From the talented brewers of Midnight Sun comes an incredible, beautifully bright and sunny golden ale. Every sip entices the taste buds with a bold balance of pils malt and noble hops. Midnight Sun Kolsch is a traditional German-style beer that unites the liveliness of an ale with the crispness of a lager for real refreshment any time of year.

v Creating a beer that truly serves both newcomers to craft beer as well as avid beer aficionados is no easy task. Midnight Sun Kolsch brewers struck gold with this beer...and now you can too.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 Had this beer on tap at the Salmon Bake restaurant in McKinley Park, Alaska. It was the tourist town at the east entrance of Denali National Park. Anyways, they claim that this offering from the midnight sun brewing company is only available on tap at their location. That said, I hope they keep it that way. It smells bad and doesn’t taste much better. Blonde and uninteresting, the best thing about this beer is that the waiters have pretty cool shirts advertising it.

Draft sample at the brewery 7/8/05: Straw-colored with a decent head. Starchy aroma but an interesting bitter tinge beyond the standard Kolschiness ... good stuff.

Sampled on tap at the brewery. Cloudy, light golden appearance, light fluffy white head. Fresh clean, mown grass aroma, slight buttery taste with a good malty backbone that adds some sweet doughy notes. Smooth, silky mouthfeel. All in all, a decent Kölsch, quite refreshing.

DarkElf (3059) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 1, 2004
(Draft: Midnight Sun Brewing Co. in Anchorage, AK) Quite malty for a kölsch, in fact malty enough and balanced that it could qualify as a European pilsener; The maltiness balances the moderate bitterness fairly well; Clean and crisp on the palate; The nose has a nice bit of maltiness to balance out the moderate hops and citrus aromas; Light golden color; Off-white head has good size and decent retention
