The mildest beer available from fiftyfifty. Looks like BMC, which is a compliment, great clarity, good white head over 1". Aroma was almost nonexistant.

Taste, nice and dry, almost no bitterness and a mild, yet zesty hop twinge largely attributable to the substantial carbonation. An easy drinker, but around $6 a pint hurts the overall score. I'm guessing maybe Willamette and/or Noble hops to it.

This beer is clearly made for the non beer aficionados, or maybe the aficionados who've had a long day skiing, or golfing or whatever, when you just want a nice light bodied beer with a decent stretch of flavor to it from both the yeast and mild hopping.

On tap at the brewpub, 4.9%abv. Gold color without much head. Light aroma of clean, sweet malt. Light maltiness with a subtle hop balance. More hop flavor than I expected actually, but not too bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Clean and refreshing, but not a whole lot going on.

They actually label this one a Kolsch and I think that's right. Dry taste and just enough bitterness. I had it at the brewpub and it was the best beer we had there (tried all 8) and this place had the best beer of the 5 brewpubs we visited in the area.
