I was at the store and saw that they still had Alaskan Summer Ale and it was on sale, so I picked up the sixer. I don't know if they were trying to get rid of it, but it was in the back of the refrigerator case so I figured it was still in good condition. It's a kolsch style. I poured one and I have to say tat is is a fantastic beer. A gold color and perfectly balanced. A little hop aroma with a hint of grain. Bitter, but not overly hoppy, clean and crisp, light and everything a kolsch should be. This beer is the goal the next time I make a kolsch.
