Our take on a kolsch style ale that is soft on the palate with a delicate malt flavor. Balanced with a touch of wheat and honey notes .Dry and wine like with a flowery hop finish.

growler into a pilsner glass

A: Pours a crystal clear, very light yellow, almost Chardonnay colored. Tons of carbonation bubbles can be seen racing up the glass, similar to a pour of champagne. 1.5 fingers width of bright white head hangs around for the majority of the drink and leaves tons of honeycomb lacing.

S: Aroma is bready, biscuity, slightly vinous like dry white wine. Some spice, and grassy hops. For such a light, generally simple, style this has a lot going on. Im impressed so far.

T: Pale-type malts, sweet citrus, bready, mild hop spice/bitterness, there is a yeasty presence thats almost Belgium-esque, a moderate degree of spice. Again, surprisingly complex for the style. Really enjoyable.

M/D: Light, crisp, moderately heavy carbonation which is appropriate, somewhat drying. Great drinkability.

O: Ive had tons of COAST beers, but have always passed on this one because I generally am not a fan of the style. But wow, what a surprise this is. For a style thats generally pretty blah, this one is excellent! A light, refreshing beer thats also complex and big on flavor. This one's a winner.

A: Bright yellow urine like colour, 1 finger white head. Clear filtered, almost no carbonation.

S: Malt, white grape, dry and wine like.

T: Malt, bitter, white grape, white wine, long bitter finnish following the initial bitter in quality. The bitterness is like a white grape fruit rind (as opposed to ruby red) toned down in strength. Dry finnish.

M: balance of body and carbonation makes it smooth. It’s a medium light body with medium low carbonation. Dry finnish.

O: Very pleasant, very balanced, to me it’s a great representation of this style. Keeps me sipping. Would go well with light meats like chicken breast with mozzerella.
