I do enjoy a well done Kolsch, and from a can... interesting. Hopefully this hits nicely. Thanks to crapturds (reddit). No date, but that's typical for a can.
Pours a decent fizzy bubbly 1 finger airy head that tries to fade quickly but keeps getting knocked back with a nice column of bubbles streaming up to continue the head's reign. touches of whispy pacing, over crystal clear lemon cereal yellow color.
Nose is actually very well done for a Koslch, nice crackery grainy malts, toasty cereal grains, a mild lemony fruity like cereal note, little grassy, hay, etc, with a nice light crisp airy feel to it even in the aroma, faint hints of noble grassy slight floral hops.
Taste is pretty nice too, again more cereal grains, toasty and crackery, grainy, with a mild to fair sweetness, some hay and grassy flavors too. Fruitiness really comes through, a lager-like fruit flavor, can't really pinpoint a specific fruit but generic fruitiness, and hint of lemony cereal note. Mild grassy hops note, again noble like with hint of floralness. Mild soft crisp center, crisp finish with fair dryness, mild bitterness lingering, hint of a salty note.
Mouth is soft and crisp, bit lighter body, nice carb.
Overall pretty nice for a Kolsch, most American Kolschs are not well done, but this was pretty well done. A little sweet, and a bit on the fruity side, but that's not a big issue. Nice malts, nice hops, crisp, dry tasty, well done.
