This is the darkest Kolsch I've ever seen, being darker than amber, perhaps even copper in color. A fizzy head is pretty short-lived and, despite consistent activity, doesn't have lasting power. It does leave just enough spotty lacing from a light foam to let me know it's got at least some substance to it.
This...is an interesting one. After offering me a note up rubbing alcohol on front (which doesn't translate to the flavor, fortunately), it shows off lots of sweet malts and very mils floral notes. The taste moves from sweet corn to steel but not adjunct, per se. There's a floral and even a touch of herbal hoppiness to this beer, but it's not vinous and the malts keep it from being dry. I don't know what this actually is, only that it's not a Kolsch. It's not a bad beer, as there's a good balance and depth of flavor despite the weirdness of it, but it loses points for adherence to style.
The feel actually isn't bad but, again, adherence to style is an issue. While not a big-bodied brew, it's downright heavy for a Kolsch. It's also not particularly clean.
I think Dark Horse is a great brewery in general, but it really swings on the spectrum with their beers. This is on the lower end.
