3.3/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Poured minimal head on a clear, golden colored body.
The aroma is clean with mild dry grain smell.
The taste is mildly bitter with a sweeter middle to finish. Good balance.
The texture is slightly sticky with a crispness.
An enjoyable and easy drinking ale.
Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a whipped egg white head; decent retention that leaves a nice web of lace
Smell: Crusty bread with a touch of sweetness; husky grain underneath
Taste: Bready, up front, with a grassy/husky edge building in the mid-palate; slightly metallic and sweet in the finish
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with crisp carbonation
Overall: A fairly decent rendition of the style with slightly unusual finish; very quaffable
Thanks, JohnGalt1, for the opportunity

12oz can into a Sam Smith nonic...
A: Clear straw-colored body, very BMC-like but maybe a touch darker...light white head has better retention than most light beers.
S: Crisp malt sweetness, clean and actually pretty nice...very bready with the slightest whiff of grassy hop character.
T: Struck by the sweetness again, very clean bready malt body with a nice clean finish. Almost too sweet for me.
MF: Light, good carbonation. No residual off flavors and very low bitterness.
O: I could see this being a really nice warm-weather beer. The bready-sweet malt body is a very nice representation of this classic style.

Quite a few Sockeye cans arrived around Boise today... Surprised I haven't reviewed this one yet... The Galena Kolsch is a goto for me when I hit the brewery. Picked up this 12oz can at the COOP... Poured glowing polished golden into my HotD goblet... Short lasting white head is appropriate.
Clean pale maltiness on the nose... some minor spicy hoppiness just to keep things interesting. Never any bitches about the aroma, this is a well done Kolsch.
Again, clean pale malts... same appropriate hoppiness... malts are dry but with a residual bready character... sorta minerally on the finish that helps dry it out..
light/medium body with a good carbonation.
This will be a summertime staple... Would be great sitting around an early evening campfire after a long day hotspringing or hiking.
