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.

jgb9348 (5232) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Crisp light copper coloured body with a very hazy, bright orange glow and a thick, three centimetre tall off-white head - looks brilliant. Aroma of pungent grassy and soapy hops, a bit of malt and a decent amount of sugars. Light-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal flavours up front with a decent amount of hops, some light alcohol and a bit of sugars on the finish. Aftertaste is one-dimensional with a touch of malt capped by the light hops and very smooth finish. Overall, exactly as the label says - a refreshing, almost cooling beer with some hops, but mostly an easy-drinking, still flavourful beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, Calfiornia on 01-August-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 22-August-2012.

Grima (2211) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2012
Very nice bottle design. Pours bright copper colored with small white head. Smells hoppy-fruity, some herbs are noticeable. Starts with herbal hops, slight bitter, well fruity in the background. The middle part has some medical herbs, well paired with fruity hops. Goes into a very herbal-hoppy finish with some pine woods.

mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Pours a clear, light amber with a medium, white head that stays. Good lacing. Aroma has balanced notes of both hops and malts, with a hint of citrus. Effervescent mouthfeel. Hoppy, but not overpowering taste, with citrus notes true to the aroma. Bitter finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mzaar (2291) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2012
Mörkorange öl, stort skum som rätt snart lägger sig. Dofterna är rent ljuvliga: mycket blommor men också melon och grape. Smakar dessamma. Beskan är väl avvägd, skön eftersmak av exotiska frukter.

glennmastrange (2489) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle. Moderate roasted for the malt, light pine and mustiness for the hops and yeast, with wood and paper. Head is average size, fizzy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation and a lightly astringent and dry finish. This American Pale Ale is very easy drinking and pretty standard for the style.

fr5ed (59) - Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Hazy, orange color. Bready / malty aroma with some melon / pineapple hops aroma. Biscuit / malt taste with moderate hop bitterness. Classified as an IPA on BA, but a Pale Ale here on RB. I agree with American Pale Ale. Nice and drinkable, but not on my favorites list.
