Growler from the brewery.
A: Beautiful clarity! Good carbonation and a nice white head. Looks great for beer from a growler. Perhaps a bit dark for a kolsch with a touch of amberish, but not too bad. Mostly straw colored.
S: Nice light crisp malt. It has a tight nose but that's fine.
T: Good light crisp malt with some light bitterness. Just a light amount of hop flavor in addition to the bitterness. Almost a bit of sweetness in there, but not really. Great balance.
M: Nice and light and crisp.
D: Why the hell would they release a goddamned kolsch in the middle of the winter? This is a summer beer Scott!! The rosso release was brutal and nothing goes better with brutal cold than a kolsch...no wait, I meant any other beer besides a kolsch. I'll be generous and grade it as if it was a nice hot day outside.
Serving type: growler

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
