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.

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.
