Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed for the upcoming (hopefully) warm weather with a traditional Kolsch yeast, which lends toward a fruity and flavorful beer with a nose of floral and fruity hops and a soft malt body with a crisp, dry finish.

I had this one at the Wriglyeville outpost.

Served in a Willie, the beer is a chill hazed yellow with a really stick white head.
The nose is of lemon grass, grains and touch of spice.

First impression, incredibly fresh and refreshing. Slightly tart with a some citrus, ripe pears and grains.

The mouth is crisp with medium heft. Its an easy drinker that went well with the house made pastrami ruben.

I think this compares very well to any Kolsch I have had (domestic & import). Well done.
