3.9/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date

LOOK: Clear yellow hue, decent lacing

SMELL: Herbal, green peppercorn, fresh crackers, faint mint, very clean

TASTE: Very crisp, wet, dry pull, oily hop resin, herbal, leafy, fresh grass, slightly biscuity, clean, long dry finish

Immensely drinkable, fresh malt flavors from start to finish. Hoppiness balances and shows off a little. Summit has certainly brightened up my summer a bit more with this one.

Serving type: bottle

3.29/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12oz. can into a pint glass.

Pours a pale straw color with a huge, foamy head that slowly dissipates and leaves som scattered lacing.

The aroma is of lemon, grass and a little sour funk in the background that seems a bit off.

The taste is lemon first, then a bit of bitter with a grassy, dry finish.

The mouthfeel is light and crisp, a bit bubbly with a slightly sticky finish.

Overall, a decent kolsch although, to me, something seemed slightly off. The can is fresh so that's not the issue. Not the best example of the style that I've had.

Serving type: can

Out of a Summit sampler.
Poured into a pint glass.
It's yellow with a fair head. Decent carbonation.
Smells like grass. Not a lot going on.
Tastes like grass, malty with a bitter finish. Nice hop bite. Not bad.
Nothing extraordinary, but pleasant. Nice price too.
