D.L. Geary Brewing Company - Geary's Summer Ale

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a Collins glass posing as a Stange

Geary's Summer Ale is a Kölsch-style beer brewed in Maine. The brew pours a shining brownish amber with a crystal-clear body. The head is a large, off-white, fluffy foam. It's airy and voluminous with excellent retention and fine lacing. The nose is very lagery with a mild bitter dandelion. There's a slight skunkiness to it, with a minor toasted malt sweetness.

The beer is crisp and full-bodied with a sparkling carbonation. The lagery edge is in full force with an added dryness on the foretaste. The malts are sweet with a toasted biscuity flavor. A slight metallic tinge seems to line the beer and gives it additional bite. The finish is crisp and refreshing with a mild lingering bitterness.

Final Verdict: B
