Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 05-06-2013

For our first release we present our take on a Kolsch, a traditional German beer from Cologne, Germany. Built from the ground up with the best North American malted barley and wheat, combined with a touch of German hops, this beer has a slightly citrusy and sweet malty character with only a hint of bitterness. Our special Belgian yeast imparts a signature fruit and floral aroma, making it a refreshing beer for any occasion.

On-tap 11/23/2014 at Pour Farm in New Bedford, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grain, light caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with a big malt sweetness that is followed by a hearty breadiness. The hops presence is mild even for the style but still provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body overall but on the heavy side for the style, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, more filling than most other beers in the style, mild kick, decent representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

Nearly no head and it settles to no bubbles and therefore no head. The liquid is light amber/dark gold. Low haze.

Lightly smokey on the nose. I don't detect any of the other typical smells. Think distant campfire.

This sits on the tongue lightly with a strong effervescence. Good body matches the high level of bubbles. The flavor comes through on the swallow and it reminds me of a homebrew, meaning lots of yeast (Belgian?) and slightly soured cream. The aftertaste is semisweet and semi sour. Oddly, it finishes flat to me.

A - Arrived in something like a pint glass. No head, no lacing. The beer is something of a darkened orange straw color. Very hazy.

S - Light waft of banana/spice aroma. Pleasant.

T - Mostly follows the nose, but stronger flavor. Mostly dominated by the clove/spice character of the taste. Mostly yeast character, low bitterness. Slightly dry finish.

M - Not impressive. This beer is pretty thin. Not too much supporting carbonation. The slightly dry finish is nice, there is very little cling to this beer, no lingering aftertaste.

O - First of all, apparently I need to refresh my style guidelines, because this tasted absolutely nothing like any Kolsch that I have ever tried before. I hadn't heard of it before ordering, and I thought it was some new brewery's clumsy take on a saison or even a couple German Hefes that I've tried. Regardless of the style, I found very little going on here. Not bad, but not recommended.
