COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our cool brew is a highly dry-hopped ale which is full of flavor and yet eminently refreshing. We brew this seasonal beer as a tribute to the grand American traditions of summer vacations, backyard barbecues, and peaceful picnics. Our COOL BREW is perfect for picnics and pairs with carne asada and sausages.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Bomber. Clear chestnut color with a tall khaki head. Aroma of lemon zest and chemicals. Metallic taste overwhelmed some attempts for a little citrusy hops to fight through. Hints of toffee and burnt chocolate as well. Watery. Quick, mildly bitter and astringent finish. I wanted to find something to like about this beer but it just wouldn’t let me.

This is a pretty tasty beer, even though the aroma is a bit malt heavy. A bit of grit and bitterness, but not overly done. Pretty tasty stuff.
