@ Redbones BBQ, Somerville, MA.
Crystal clear golden, active carbonation and a nice and tight white lace. Mild tropical fruit in the nose. Nice, big, malty palate and unusual for such a light looking beer, but welcomed. Dextrin and fruity sweetness run side by side. Fruit notes are tea-like, a bit peachy? Crisp mouthfeel. Hops are present, but not upfront. Light bread flavours, some grain dryness in the finish.
This is one of THE traditional Kölsch beers out of Germany. You can't really say more than that.
Serving type: on-tap

4.15/5 rDev +7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 16.9 oz (500 ml) tall slender Euro style bottle with a simple bright red label that really catches the eye. No freshness date.
Appearance: Pale golden straw colour with an intense clarity and a bubbly appearance. Head retention holds its own and after a semi-hard pour it yielded a fully white froth then subsided to a delicate lace leaving occasional rings down the glass.
Smell: Clean aroma, some pale malt breadiness with an extremely clean applely vinous note. Thick soft graininess is the bulk of the nose though a faded peppermint like hop comes through.
Taste: Moderate body with a refreshingly crisp mouth feel from the medium high carbonation. Sweet pale malt with a little fresh cut hay and apple woodiness as well as a bit of minty or pine most likely from the hops. Vague suggestion of vanilla and maple. Flavours are meshed with an unbreakable complexity for such a light coloured brew. Dry pretty much from the get go with a full grainy palate. Crispness keeps the mouth clean, hop bitterness is lightly assertive and enhances the dryness. Dry malt character rides far into the finish with remnants of a piney hop.
Notes: Beyond drinkable, this brew is a great way to wet the appetite whether it is before a meal or the beginning of an all night session of drinking.

3.48/5 rDev -10.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Extremely clean look. Transparent very pale yellow golden color. Finger and a half of head on the pour. Above average active carbonation in the glass while drinking.
Smell: Aromas of straw and hay hit the nose first. Sweet soft malt backbone is picked up but takes a back seat. Light tropical fruits compliment the straw tones very well.
Taste: Easy going biscuity malt front greets the drinker. That sweetness carries over into the body which adds some fruit and very mild bitterness. Bready finish that leaves a light pleasant sweetness behind.
Mouthfeel: Some lingering malt tones on the finish. Super easy drinking.
Overall: A simple yet well crafted beer. Biscuity malt is prevalent with some fruitiness to add a bit of complexity. Really easy beer to sit back, relax, and just enjoy.
