We present to you, from Big Ten Country's largest craft brewery, Goose Island's Summertime Kolsch. Summertime exemplifies this unusual style (one of only a few that don't fit neatly into the categories of Lager or Ale) with its light, refreshing body, crisp carbonation, mildly fruity/bitter interplay and a clean finish.
