Grabbed as part of a mix a 6 pack... I love Kolsch as a style...
This is the darkest looking Kolsch I've ever seen. Deep coppery amber colored body with a small splattering of nearly white bubbles atop it. The head subsided quickly to leave a thin collar but no lacing.
Smells really too malty. Almost like a barleywine somehow.... Minus caramel malts. Some sweet bready malt and some harsher grainy malt lead the way. Some leafy, vegetable, and spicey hop notes come in on the backend. Yikes. The finish is surprisingly bitter, and as it warms it gets quite boozy.
Feels overcarbonated, yet oily. Like too many bubbles on the tongue, but it's surprisingly full-- at least more full than medium bodied.
Not very refreshing. Not very Kolsch-y. Not very good. In the future I'll avoid this one like it was made by White Birch.

Poured from the bottle into a stange glass.
A murky brown light orange body is presented, some cola like sticking carbonation, but with a good amount of small white pinhead rising bubbles as well. Head makes two fingers, light tan in color and settles to a small thin puck.
Nose is interesting, light fruity esters giving to fig and raisins almost hinting of Belgian dark ale sensing sweetness, but much lighter and less sweet. Good solid hints of simple toffee and caramel.
Really nice crisp palate, with good dense malt and light club soda effervescent quality. Sharp hop mixing with a lime citrus astringent finish. Light toffee and fruity raisins match nicely in this very interesting style through the mid palate.
Real interesting beer, probably not what I want in a Kolsch, but it's a real interesting style a mix of light kolsch and sweet dark caramel flavors.
