deep dark brown body with a three finger head that unfortunatly settled rather quickly. smell and taste mirror one another. pick up on grassy earth tones at first with some biscuit and cracker and roasted grains. some toffee, caramel and chocolate are also noticable. there is almost a smoke quality on the finish that is not expected. a thin mouthfeel but easy drinkin. i like it. thanks again UHCougar12!

Melbourne Bros.
Described as a "Black Koelsch"
A ~ Black-Brown w/ an off white head. Slight lace.

S ~ Spicy greens, crackers, toasted white breads. . . bit of caramel. Smells a lot like Weedwacker, one of my favorite Sessions!

T ~ Toast following through w/ steamed greens, grains, wheat, & a light sweetness with a bready dry finish.

M ~ Great flavors with a meaty Robust feel on a palette. Nice finish with a slight metallic note.

D ~ Would gladly drink again. I like Saint Arnold A LOT! Great American expressions of German styles. This is not a traditional Koelsch by any means, but it's still pretty tasty. Thanks brad!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Deep reddish amber when eld to light, with a moderate, persistent, coarse tan head, fine scattered lacing, like some lost ancient writings. The carbonation is slight and slow-rising.

Aroma; Citrus hops, bordering on orange dominate the aroma, as well as roasted and caramel malt, as the taste progresses, the roasted malt flavor intensifies, although pleasantly. Towards the latter part of the taste, there is a moderate cold coffee note. Finishes with lingering roasted malt and a faint herbal hop flavor.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, a bit thin, but still pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very pleasant and drinkable.

Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a standard pint tap glass.

Poured into a wide chalice, this is a very dark beer with a head that fades away pretty quickly. Nice aroma, though: light coffee roast, perhaps a faint hint of smokiness. It's a solid dark malt. I'm not sure why this is classified as a Kolsch: it clearly doesn't fit the style at all. The flavor resembles the nose mostly, but adds a touch of cocoa. A moderate amount of bitterness dries things out, but I don't get any hop flavor. Again, I get a hint of smokiness that adds a nice dimension. Clean flavor yeast-wise, with a lingering maltiness.

I'd call it a schwarz myself. In any case, it's pretty drinkable. The low strength makes for a nice session beer as well.
