Alaska Brewing Company’s Summer beer is based off the traditional style of Cologne, Germany’s Kölsch beer. “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.”

Need confirmation of quality? Alaskan Summer Ale won a gold medal at the 2008 World Beer Cup. The ale will require some exploring to get your hands on, but remember the best things in life ain’t easy.
