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.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
0.355l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear golden one with a small just off-white lacing top. It’s not extreme on the nose, but I get some branchy hops, slightly dusty and sweet peaches. Not horrible, but not over-interesting to be honest. It’s below average on the carbonation and it has a slick oily mouthfeel. Not directly fresh on the taste, but it’s slightly berry-sweet this. Low on the bitterness indeed. Kinda mouthdrying and almost astringent also. Would like to try this a bit fresher. 05.01.2012

Hazy deep golden colour with a fine off white head. Nice grape hoppy aroma. Medium pluss body. Moderate sweet with a fine bitterness. Very fruity and grape hoppy flavour.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange color with a white head. Smells of perfume, some floral hops, water, and bread. A weird apricot fruitiness, sort of sweet and sugary. The flavor is a bit watery. Lots of grass and straw, some floral hops, and a light bitterness. Sweet bread, sugar, and candied orange peel. A weird green olive off-flavor as it warms up.

Onionkid (371) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has caramel and hops. Taste is similar, with some nice grass clipping flavor in there and a crisp finish. A pretty decent beer. 6.5% alcohol.

rollinsr (504) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 24, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with a finger of off-white head. Aroma is light and hoppy with tangerine-like citrus notes. Flavor is sweet and smooth with only some light bitterness. Slight funk in the aftertaste but not enough to ruin the beer. This one is very light and citrusy without to much of the bittering hops. A good replacement for people who are sick of Blue Moon and want to branch out a bit.

buzz_and_hum (153) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 23, 2012
Pours cloudy pale brown, big fluffy head. Wafting notes of hoppiness over a distinct "beery" scent of malt and yeast. Smooth and refreshing in the mouth, but a bit thick and sticky for the "summer ale" their marketing seems to suggest. Lingerly bitter, so a lovely summer drink, but not a quaffer.

Kristall-König (2560) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2012
Geruch hopfig, blumig. Süß-zitrusartiger Anlauf. Mitte ebenso, floral, lieblich. Moderat bitter-trockener Abgang. Sehr ausgewogen - echt gut.

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2012
Pleasant on the nose due to initial floral aromas, but somewhat alcoholic and tea/simcoe-bitter tasting PA with a light to medium mouthfeel. Left me with a dry mouth and an idea of what a headache might feel like after 2 of these in rapid succession.
