Our cool brew is a highly dry-hopped ale which is full of flavor and yet eminently refreshing.

Our COOL BREW is perfect for picnics and pairs with carne asada and sausages.

355ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium straw, thin head. Malty, grainy aroma, hops, citrus, earth. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Malty, grainy taste, citrus, caramel, hops, earth. There’s a growing sweetness in the finish which is quite disturbing. (2012-06-02)

If this was a motorbike it would be a Versper; a good little runner but is never going to break any speed records. Refreshingly sophisticated like a penguin in a suit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (5414) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2012
12 oz. Lightly hazy, peach-orange with a quarter-inch of lasting cream on top. Nose is earthy caramel popcorn and pineapple. Taste is dirty caramel, orange wood, potato chips, alcohol and resin. Light-medium body has light carbonation and is balanced.

3.2
Suttree (6385) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2012
I thought this was more of an amber ale than an APA. Very sweet, lots of caramel and toffee, and much more hops in the aroma than flavor. Not particularly inspiring...

3.4
hivemind (915) - New York, New York, USA - APR 19, 2012
Tap @ FG w E. Pour is a solid medium amber. No real head. Aroma is light, wet hop with some floral notes. Taste is pretty heavy, wet hops with a grainy, caramel malt undertone. Grapefruit or amarillo in the finish. Light mouthfeel. The sweet finish makes it good. Don’t understand the hate. Served in shaker.

3.3
ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $2.09 at Total Wine & More in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clear (though an initial chill haze), golden body with a frothy, white head that settles though never entirely dissipates.

Smell: Modest pale base malts with mild-mannered notes of biscuit and cracker with hoppy hints of lemon, grapefruit, and hewn grasses.

Taste: Sweetish pale malts with some accents of biscuits and waterlogged crackers with a little edge of caramel to it. Dried lemon rind, slightly grassy, slightly earthy hops with sufficient bitterness to balance things out. Becomes just a little bit astringent as you hit the dry, relatively crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A Cool Brew? Well, it’s just OK.
