Harpoon Summer With A Seasonal Brew
No matter what the weather or time of year, we can think and drink summer thanks to seasonal brews now available. Harpoon Brewery of Boston, Massachusetts and Windsor, Vermont has just released its summer seasonal beer. Check it out!
Harpoon has been making their summer beer for many years now, and if you’ve never tried it, here’s a brief description according to harpoonbrewery.com:
“Harpoon Summer Beer (Seasonal)
Our version of the traditional German Kölsch-style ale. This beer, which is light and refreshing, appears to resemble a lager rather than an ale. The Kölsch style is a testimony to the broad spectrum of characteristics an ale can produce, as well as the brewer’s art. The body is soft and delicate with a dry, crisp finish.
Appearance: straw-gold with bubbly white head
Aroma: lightly sweet, faint wheat
Mouth feel: delicate body
Taste: crisp, lemon-y, some bitterness
Finish: dry, crisp
First Brewed 1999 Style Kolsch alc/vol 4.8% ibu 26 Color 9 EBC”
I’ve had this one over the years and can vouch for the fact that’s it is a very good summer beer. Not fruity, filtered and refreshing.
