Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our German-style Kolsch pays homage to the traditional beer of Cologne. It pours a pale straw color, delivering floral hop notes and a smooth malt character developed from extended cold aging.

04/26/14 From a can. Thanks to AJ at Super Buyrite. This is more substantial than Kolschs I've know. Nothing wrong with that as long as it's balanced. Firm head atop a slightly darker beer than the light blondes in my past. Slight aroma doesn't give anything away as to the fullness of the mouth-feel & tastes. At 4.8 ABV it could be called a session beer by some, but I'd reserve that for beers of a lighter body. At the risk of sounding petty I'll say this is a great summer evening or night brew, but starting a session in the afternoon with this candidate may be costly. I will be looking out for it again this summer.

Had this on 2014-08-12 in Columbia, PA

A - Pretty clear gold with a 1.5-finger white head and mild lace.

S - Rising white bread with a touch of grass and lemon.

T - Sourdough, astringent, pine, hop bitterness. Finishes a bit tart and bitter.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Prickly and crisp.

O - Not true to style. Reminds me of a session IPA more than a Kolsch. Drinkable for sure but not soaring to the top of the leaderboard for me of Kolsch's I've had.
