’Brien’s: Pale golden color with a very small, fast fading head. Aroma is jucy fruit gum. Flavor lightly sweet and fruity with a hint of bubble gum. Smooth thin palate.

Nose is a small grassy hay aroma with a splice of bannana and vanilla. Gold colored and a tiny head was created but very quickly formed a thin ring around the perimeter. The flavor is bland and has only a straw grass and malt profile. It’s only a beer for those days in the sun.

Pours a small white head that s gone in a flash and leaving minimal lacing behind. Lightly hazy gold hued brew. Delicate fruit and malt nose, light citrus and oxydation. Light body. Lightly toasted malts, grassy hops, vinous notes. Finish is dry. Thanks Stephen!

Light and fruity with not much going for it. Unobjectionable but throughly uninteresting. Very weak flavor profile.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Initial phenolic aroma of clove and a little banana quickly dissipated to a mild grain/malt aroma with slight DMS aroma detectable. Beer poured with a golden color with a very fine head and no lace. Several minutes after pouring, a mixture of medium and a few large bubbles continued to rise up through the glass.
Flavor was heavier than other Kölsch beers I’ve tried: more like a kristalweizen than a Kölsch. A pleasant flavor, but I’m not sure this conforms to the style. Palate was a little thin and fizzy. Not a bad beer, but falls short of other offerings I’ve had from Alaskan Brewing.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Malty sweet, herbal, grassy aroma. Lemon zest, light caramel malt flavors. Unpleasant dryness at the finish produces a coating feeling on my tongue. Not bad, but coming from Alaskan brewing I had higher expectations.

Beautiful golden ale look. Pours easily with a slight head. Perfect warm weather beer. A little sweet with some tart, citrusy taste.

Pours a dark golden color with a small white head. Aroma is citrus lemon and a bit of malty sweet. Flavor is a mild malt with a bit of lemon and a metallic taste. Watery mouthfeel but refreshing. Good session beer.
