3.15/5 rDev -12.7%
On tap poured into a 16 oz pint
A - Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a tinge of green. A billowy 1.5 finger head. Produced really nice lacing as it was drank.
S - Smells like a typical Kolsch, has that lagering yeast aroma, a bit of hay, kind of musty beer smell. Some wheat malt comes through.
T - Tastes a lot like a basic Kolsch, quite disappointed that I didn't pick up on any tea flavors. I did get some wheat and a bit of lemongrass, which might have been the tea, not quite sure.
M - medium carbonation, light mouthfeel
O - Admittedly I don't care for this style of beer, but even so I'm trying to as objective as I can. This beer is nothing to write home about and personally a bit of a disappointment to me for the Fulton & Wood series. It just reminds me a beer you'd drink at a frat party out of a red Solo cup.

3.33/5 rDev -7.8%
Served on-draught at Goose Island Clybourn over Paddy's Day Weekend. Reviewed from notes. 4.6% ABV confirmed. Served into a 13 oz stange.
A: Pours a one finger white colour head. Soft froth. Nice thickness. Above average retention. Body colour is a predictable clear yellow. Vibrant. Very appealing - especially in a proper stange. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Clean pilsner malts, bright fruit, pale malts, and I guess some light fruit character when I look for it - bright fruit/passionfruit. A mild strength aroma.
T/Mf: Clean crisp pilsner malts fill out the body. Good carbonation. Slight coarseness, yet still wet and refreshing. Bright muted fruit. Clean and pleasant. Light plum, perhaps. Maybe some tea-like notes. Light on the palate. Enjoyable. I quite like it in spite of its simplicity. Tasty flavorful stuff.
Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. Not the best kolsch I've had - and far from traditional - but it'd be worth getting again. A solid little Kolsch from Goose Island. Hides its ABV well.

Served in a stange at the Clybourn brewpub.
The first Fulton and Wood release of 2013 is a kolsch brewed with Iron Goddess of Mercy, a black oolong tea from Intelligentsia. Right on. It pours a clear straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises dry wheat, sweet honey, fish fry batter, green tea, light toasted biscuit, and light sweetgrass. The taste brings in more of the same, producing basically a sweet and smoky green tea flavor. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, an interesting, intriguing, and generally enjoyable little experiment in double-brewing (tea and beer). Not bad.
