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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a cloudy straw color, nice one finger of fizzy white head, good lacing too.
S - No real good aroma here that stands out, a little light grain, some grassy tones, a little lemon peel, maybe some biscuit.
T - Taste is mild bitterness on some biscuit malt, a little grassy and floral on the end.
M - Crisp and refreshing, light bodied.
O - Excellent summer beer, probably my favorite, easily drinkable, very refreshing. Not the most on flavor, but definitely a good example of a kolsch.

3.83/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: A pale golden beer with a slight haze and a thin white head.

S: Not a lot in the nose but a faint sweetness and a light lemon ester. The fermentation esters are pretty clean and lager like in there absences that is.

T: A medium bitterness and faint sweetness in the middle but becoming a very dry beer. A moderate lemon, citrus flavor. The balance is slight towards the bitter and the finish is dry.

M: A little fluffy, being a slightly creamy beer with a medium-light body and a medium level of carbonation

O: A very good Kolsch. It's a style I struggle to describe because when it's done right is a light dry beer with some potential fruitiness that is great a Summer session beer, much like what we have here with Summits Summer Ale.
