hands down the best kolsch i have ever had, bar none. its simple summer beer really, but its put together in a way that not a single other example of the style can match. pale blonde beer, brightly carbonated, with a distinct grassy and slightly limey hop profile. the label seems to indicate a single hop of tettnanger, which i never knew could be so dynamic, especially on its own. pils and white wheat malts make up the base, which is light and clean, minimally cereal grainy, but still earthy and floral, its really fun beer. a four pack of pint bottles is nice, but a sixer of these would be the ideal dose. just so bright and easy drinking, perfectly refreshing when ice cold, and quite affordable for the quality. kolsch isnt a style of beer that has ever turned my head or inspired me much, but for an all day drinker, i can think of no better beer in the colorado market. i love the subtle but distinct hop profile on the finish, and the way the little bubbles prickle it into my palate. infinitely sessionable, 8 second is yet another example of brewing mastery from the good people of elevation. i cant get enough of this.

On tap at Euclid Hall. Bright yellow color, nice looking head. Aroma was earthy, minerals, interesting. Flavor was crisp, fruity, probably wouldn't pass for a true German like Sunner but nonetheless it was a nice beer. This might be the best Elevation beer I've had this far, very refreshing.
