BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Alaskan Brewing Co.
Alaska, United States
alaskanbeer.com

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

This is a great, refreshing summer beer. It's a darker golden color, light carbonation. Crisp drink, very refreshing. Not overly unique, but it's an enjoyable drink.

Aroma is a nice fresh beer at first, but then with a second whiff - medicinal. Flavor has some crispness from carbonation, but also some heavy malt sweetness that's a bit out of place. Color is darker than traditional Kolsch. Ok beer.
