Kölsch
Victory Brewing Company
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.60 %

LOOK: Clear golden color, with a foam cap and leaving plenty of lacing.

SMELL: Distinct lager yeast smell, grass, cooked veggies, stewed hops, fresh bread and a bit buttery as well.

TASTE: Clean bready malt flavor like a typical German Kolsch. Herbal tea like hopping with mild grassy, leafy flavor and bitterness. Bready, well balanced, very lightly bitter lager.

FEEL: Light bodied, stinging carbonation. Light, easy to drink , very mellow.

OVERALL: A pretty nice kolsch, but does not separate itself from many others in the style. Pretty standard, not that there's anything wrong with that.

On tap at Varga Bar in Philly on 8/3/12, served in a shaker.

Pour: Completely clear yellow orange with a finger and a half white head.

Smell: Grassy hops with a light caramel sweetness. Not very substantial on the nose.

Taste: Bready malts sweetness to the max, with a pleasant floral and grassy hoppiness.

Mouthfeel: Really light and drinkable, but still packed with flavor. Very, very refreshing.

Overall: My first kolsch and I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
