South Austin Brewery "Kol'Beer"
16 oz. can

Interesting packaging. I'm assuming it's based on a beer from the past that they've taken as their own. And if that's the case I'm guessing that they've done it better than it's ever been done before. It's crystal clear gold in color beneath a fluffy head of bright white. The head retention and lacing could be better, but what do you expect. The aroma is pretty straightforward with a grainy maltiness, a mildly grassy/herbal & spicy hop component, and a delicately fruitiness. The flavor follows suit, and it's clearly pilsner malt with Germans hops (I'll guess Hallertauer and Saazer). Of course that's not a hard recipe to follow, the question is how carefully is it fermented and lagered. Pretty nicely I think. Clean. Crisp and dry. Not bad at all.

Poured from the 16oz can to a 12oz can glass. (poured the last 4 oz half way through)

Appearance- Thick and fluffy white head that was about two fingers. The head lingered surprisingly long. Pale orange/ golden. Some larger flakes of sediment were present at the bottom of the glass.

Smell- Sweet and grainy, a small amount of peppery notes. Very simple and delicate.

Taste- Clean crisp 2 row, a light earthy/peppery hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium Carbonation, Medium light mouthfeel, Doesn't linger on the palate very long so you feel like drinking it quicker.

Overall- Very very refreshing, crisp light body that makes this beer perfect for a July and August in Texas. I would recommend this session beer, and 16oz is the perfect serving size since 12oz. would leave you wanting more.
