3.3/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Sampled on tap at the downtown location while waiting for the train that would whisk me off to Pizza Port to arrive.

Appearance: Clear light honey with a scant white head. Head receded to a slight film after a minute. No lacing.

Smell: Slightly peppery, but mostly grassy noble hop-type aroma. Faint whiff of floral honey sweetness.

Taste: Lightly sweet honey-like grainy malts. Very faint grassy noble hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Faint and ephemeral. Clean finish.

Drinkability: Rather easy to finish. Very clean and crisp. I like my kolsch's a titch dryer and hoppier. Sessionable and a good crossover beer. Not in the least bit hoppy, though (especially by San Diego standards).
