Brewed to honor and support the 100th anniversary of the Millheim Fire Department.

A-Copper kissed golden yellow with a medium bright white head that reduces to a thin cap and leaves spotty lace.

S-Lightly sweet biscuit/bready malt with a bit of spicy herbal hoppiness in the background.

T-Light hop spiciness supporting the sweet biscuit malt. A hint of lemon zest zing in the background.

M-Light body crisp/clean with a bit of lingering lemon zing on the palate.

D-POOF! My glass went down that fast! Crisp, clean, lightly spiced and easy to drink. This is a great summer drinking.

On tap @ the brewpub on 6/13/09. This was described as a Kölsch-style ale with $.50 from every pint benefiting the Millheim Fire Co. (celebrating it's Centennial this year). Served in a stemmed stange.

Pours a crystal clear gold, with a finger of foamy brite-white head. This peters down pretty quickly into a thin fizzy layer, that hangs around the edges, leaving some very light lacing back. The aroma is sweet and lightly bready, with a splash of lemon, and some grassy (and just a touch spicy). A bit of dry fruitiness is coming out as well, but not much else.

Hops take much more control in the taste, with the bitterness being surprisingly aggressive for a Kölsch, as it delivers an almost mouth puckering spicy lingering dryness. Sweet malts and citrus nicely balance out the initial bitterness but man, does this stuff linger! The mouthfeel is lighter-medium bodied with a firmness to the carbonation and crispness to the overall feel, which helps the drinkibility of this.

"Kölsch-style" was right on in the description of this, with a bit more American Hopitude being on display here than what you would normally expect for the style. It's tasty but make sure to keep a glass of water nearby to help re-hydrate your mouth! Decent beer for a good cause!
