(on tap at Tria Taproom - served in a British-shaped 16 oz pint)

A: apparent chill haze on the pour, clears up a bit... yellow-golden liquid... starts with a fluffy pad of fuzzy foam that takes awhile to drop, never coming close to disappearing, leaving connecting bands of lace in the glass... very nice

S: doughy yeast on the nose, not unlike a Bavarian hefe... subtle floral hops - more a classic "hoppy" hop scent - green, pasture-al

T: uncommonly assertive noble-hoppy for the style - satisyingly herbal-bitter all the way through... delicate flare of honey and caramel in the finish... vaguely sweetish cereal-like malt flavor at its base... white fruity esters are there, just woven into the background

M: lightly frothy and smooth, moderately dry in the finish... it being unfiltered lends more body to an otherwise light, crisp ale

O: what a lovely brew!... undeniably a Kolsch in its overall constitution, however, it very nearly has a British real ale bitter character

Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with big fluffy white head, much of which stays for the duration, with rings of wispy lace halfway down. Smell: semi sweet pale, lightly grainy and grassy. Taste: fairly substantial herbal hopping, with snappy grain, lemon, mildly doughy, a bit fruity with grapeskin towards the finish. Very enjoyable.
