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.

ClubGonzo (3873) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget in Torp, Uddevalla. Pours a slightly hazy light golden body with a small white head. Aroma is peaches, apricot, pale malts and hints of melon and herbs (most notably parsley). Taste is melon, parsley, herbs, hints of grapefruit and smooth caramel malts. Mild carbonation, smooth palate. A nice hoppy beer in the American tradition.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 10, 2012
Süßer blumiger Hopfenbeginn. Karamellig, gering fruchtig, konstant. Die Süße nimmt zum Ende ab, die Hopfigkeit rückt dadurch in den Vordergrund. Gelungen. 9/9/10/10/13/9

Hermod (3032) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2012
355ml bottle. Poured cloudy dark orange with very thin head. Barley wine aroma, bread, raidin, marmelade. Flavor has dark fruits, caramel with late hops pushing through in th finish. Probably an old bottle. Despite lacking the hop fruitiness, it was quite drinkable and tasty.

unclemattie (4129) - Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2012
12oz bottle. Hazy orange, Thick, heavy laced, white foam. Aroma of soapy hops. Crisp pale malts, bold earthy hops bite. A really good summer session dry-hopped American Pale Ale. 8-10yrs ago this beer would have blown my mind, kinda like Bert Grant’s. (3386)

A good beer overall, but nothing that will make you stand up an shout. We got this on discount and for a reasonable price this is an OK beer. The overall quality of beer is getting so much better in the USA, that 10 years ago this would have been a top rated beer Now it is an also ran!

stefannilssons (1451) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2012
Det här var en positiv överraskning och en riktigt god öl. Den både luktade och smakade svampigt eller disktrasigt men var väldigt välbalanserad. Smaken i sig var väldigt fruktig (aprikos?!) men det här var en rolig och god öl.

boydmarq (48) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2012
I really liked this beer. Tasted a lot like Stone IPA. Very hoppy, yet very drinkable. I could drink a lot of these

Bottle 12 . A cloudy pale amber colour with a medium high off-white head. An aroma of malt, sugar and fruit. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter. A cool brew!
