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.

buzz_and_hum (153) - Wellington, - 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.

slowrunner77 (5985) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 9, 2014
"Not a favorite. Slightly sweet. Bready malts are more prevelant than the soft citrus hops. A little grass in the nose as well. Not enough going on to be very interesting."

Golden orange in color... Aroma of citrus hops, light floral notes on nose... Flavor is lightly sweet, honey notes, some spiciness from the floral, citrus hops... Not terribly bitter, kind of fits the name, cool... Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
