Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 06-01-2002

Alaskan Summer Ale balances a softly malted palate with the clean freshness of hops. In the tradition of the style, neither overpowers the other. Both hops and malt come together to refresh and renew the palate. The straw-gold color and easy drinkability are an enjoyable way to celebrate summer.

Summer Ale pours a clear darker golden color with a small but lacing head. There is a very crisp and light malty aroma. The taste is very crisp, creamy, nice pronounced pale malt flavors, some citrus notes. Nice full flavor, good feel. Overall its a stronger and very tasty Kolsch.

a little grain and spicy hops on the nose but they are not big.
The beer pours straw color with a touch of gold with a thin white head.
A touch of light grain to light bread on the palate balanced by spicy hops and a light bitter accent, hints of light fruit.
Light, crisp, mild and refreshing and very drinkable.
