I picked this up on a recent visit to Brooklyn and as yet another snowfall looms on Presidents Day, I am continuing to reduce my backlog, especially of bottles.

From the bottle: "East Coast Ales"; "Est. 2006"; "Craft brewed in New York"; "Light, crisp and refreshing are a few of the words that come to mind when when thinking about the Kolsch style beer. This version is no different! Being that we are not in Germany, we could not resist putting our own twist on it by using good old American Crystal hops to give it a refreshing hoppy finish. [undersigned] Scott Varner".

My pour netted me a brief, fizzy finger of bone-white head that faded like anything colored red when exposed to bright, unrelenting sunlight. Color was a light, lemon-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a malty quality, not very hoppy, despite what they said on the label. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was very light, almost like lemon-lime soda pop. Lemony, slightly grassy, very dry and refreshing. They were right on the money in terms of the style and I think that I would enjoy it much more on a hot, humid summer's day than a cold, dry winter's one. The finish was equally light and crisp and I would be reaching for another except that I only had one.
