October 13, 2014

16.9 oz bottle; cylindrical glass (not a true Kolsch glass)

A – Light gold, some effervescent bubbles, and incredibly high clarity. A couple fingers of white foam that disappears fairly quickly.

S – Bready, lightly fruity, red apples and green grapes. Slight caramel or toffee tinge. Otherwise, clean, lager-like.

T – Slightly crispy toast and some mild fruity esters, perhaps golden raisins. Very, very minor hop bitterness, slightly earthy, dewy grass.

M – Juicy on the palate, then a crisp, dry finish, all washed away by the medium carbonation. No aftertaste to note.

O – Everything about this beer is mild, and that’s a compliment. Light body, light aroma, light flavor, all in harmony. An excellent session beer, would taste wonderful on the porch after the first mow of the spring.

This is a delightful Kolsch, full of flavor and with a nice clean finish. Appearance-wise it looks like a pilsener but once you place under your nose you immediately realize it's a Kolsch (and a good one in fact). Probably my favorite example of this beer style.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500 ml bottle into a tall pilsner glass. There appears to be no abv printed on the label.

Appearance: The body is very clear with some visible carbonation and it has a bright golden yellow color. This is topped off with an average white foam head. The fades quickly leaving a wispy thin film layer that sets up at the edge of the glass and makes some lacing.

Smell: As I was pouring I was getting lots of floral and botanical hop notes with just the slightest touch of citrus. This is backed up by light pilsner like maltiness.

Taste / Palate: The flavor matches the aroma but with the light bready/cracker like maltiness up front and the hops finishing up. Overall it’s fairly clean and crisp. It finishes dry and the palate is light and refreshing.
