Date of tasting-3.29.2013
Brewery- Captain Lawrence; Elmsford, ny
Style-German style American kolsch
Appearance-wet straw colored, no chill haze. Like average American bottle fare. Very little lacing, minuscule head.
Smell- zest of orange... Maybe orange marmalade...
Taste- more orange zest.. The hops whisper elegantly from beginning to end. White grapefruit In finish. Bright.
Mouthfeel- too rich IMO... Symptomatic of the problem that afflicts many American renditions of wine, beer, Shakespeare.. Over production. This should jump.. it trudges.
Overall- second kolsch (sans rockdots) I've ever experienced. The first was reissdorf, and that had such an elegant mouthfeel. This felt clunky. Another instance of the devil lying in the context. Womp Womp.
Disclaimer- I love the liquid gold! No disrespect to captain Lawrence
Serving type: on-tap

3.8/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Crystal clear, pale yellow with great lacing
Smell: Very interesting. Can't put my finger on whether it is a spicy, citrusy, or hoppy aroma, but I like it
Taste: Nice. Not as good as the Oberon I just reviewed, but another good summer beer (that I wouldn't want come November)
Mouthfeel: Great. After swallowing, my tongue feels happy. No lingering aftertaste
Overall: Good summer beer. No need to rush out and buy more right away, nor does it being me back to several fun nights I spent in Cologne Germany drinking kolsch, but a nice beer
Serving type: bottle
