Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.
A: Pours a very, very clear bright gold, with tons of active visible carbonation. Forms a thin white head with poor retention.
S: Pilsner malts with only very mild sulfuric quality, the lightest of cracker malts, and a touch of mild fruity lager yeast esters. Not much else – this smells simple, clean, and subtle - but not bad.
T: Pilsner malts, lager yeast, mild sulfur and corn, and a light grassy and floral hop bitterness towards the end. Simple.
M: Light body, medium carbonation sensation, and no alcohol presence to speak of.
O: Difficult for me to rate - this is a good example of a Kolsch. Even the poor head retention is within style guidelines of the BJCP. Ratings above are for style - I would estimate a score based on my preferences would be closer to 3.35.This rather tasted like a better quality AAL. I could envision this being an excellent "craft conversion" beer, but it's nothing I'd grab repeatedly on purpose. Just glancing at the label, I thought this was going to be an APA…should have read better. Still, it's more than drinkable and refreshing while it's cold.
