What is this, a new style-- Black Kölsch? Well, anyway it's a lot darker, a dark amber, than any Kölsch I've seen.

I just had the Fancy Lawnmower Kölsch, forgetting this one is also from Saint Arnold. Fairly malty and much richer. A distinct taste of roasted malt. Sort of an amber ale but without much in the way of hops. There are some hoppy aromatics, but mostly it's about the toasty barley and without the distinctive perfumey notes. A decent quaff and not a bad entry in the lower-alcohol sweepstakes. Not particularly distinctive but goes down easy and mixes well with a hoppier brew.

From the 12 oz bottle bought at Leonard's Market in Lubbock.

On tap at Gordon Street Tavern in Alvin, Texas (also most Buffalo Wild Wings in Houston)

Love this beer.

Plenty of caramelness in there. Not really any bitterness. To me Saint Arnold makes flavorful easy to drink beers and Santo is right up there with their best.

Being in Houston, this beer is easy to find even in those establishments that just tend to serve the big, bad, American beers. I'll take a Santo over those any day.
