Easily in my top three favorites of the Four Peaks brews, the Sunbru is great from the tap or a can. It has a lighter yellow appearance, and and the flavor this beer packs is tough to rival. The sharp citrus flavor along with the light feel of this beer make it tough kolsch to rival.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Hazy but vibrant yellow color with a huge frothy stark white head with longevity.

Grainy aroma with white grapes and a little fruity.

The flavor is less fruity, more grainy. There's a metallic aftertaste in the finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp, light, and refreshing.

It's a pretty decent kolsch and an easy drinker.

Serving type: can

Poured a nice clear gold with a thin ring of nice white head. Beautiful German lager appearance. Scents of German yeast, some hoppy notes and crystal malt. What I expect in a kolsch. Flavor is malty sweet, good crystal malt sweetness and bready flavors, this is balanced with a nice German hop presence which keeps it from being too sweet and bready. Quite nice. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation, easy to drink, nice and refreshing. This is a good kolsch, worth drinking. It's one of the better Four Peaks offerings, behind their stout and IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
