Bottle drank at Good Luck in Rochester, NY.

Pours a light orange/yellow, with a thin oily head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like grass/hay, green apple, and some unfortunately skunky aromas. I don't know how old this bottle is, but it probably isn't the freshest, unfortunately.

The hop flavor is unfortunately a bit muted, some tea and leaf-like hop flavors, some slight grassiness, and a honey-like malt flavor that seems indicative of age. It still does taste good, but I wish this was fresher, or on tap. Still quite crips with a nice bit, but it could be so much more.

Light bodied, very crisp and smooth mouthfeel, keeps it drinkable. Medium amount of carbonation.

Not a bad Kolsch, but probably not the best representation of how the brewer intended it to be.

Serving type: bottle

05/13/13 On tap. Nice and crisp. A touch on the bitter side, but it works well. I'm a stickler for having Kölschs served icy cold and in smaller glasses to maintain their crispness. Otherwise I find myself in a race against the Elements and we all know how that will turn out. Looking for this to be a summer favorite.

Serving type: on-tap
