Yes, the legendary woodychandler comes through again with another canned beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is nutty, a bit of hops. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, a bit of nuts, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

Serving type: can

This was a CANQuest (TM) score during my most recent foray to New York and Brooklyn, making it ever easier to entice me to come up and visit! Have CANS? Will Travel! That's my motto.

From the CAN: "Brooklyn Crafted Since 2006"; "Full malt flavor, spicy hop background, clean, crisp finish"; "CANS: Infinitely recyclable Beer helps"; "Created by the husband and wife team of Kelly Taylor & Sonya Giacobbe, these 100% hand-made craft ales and lagers have been brewed fresh in the bountiful borough of Brooklyn since 2006. Mounds of malt, bales of hops and countless hours of dedication and passion. That's KelSo Beer."

A nice, loud Crack! revealed a brimful CAN, so in salute to the brewers, I utilized an inverted Glug. The pseudo-cascade was brilliant, finally settling into two fingers of dense, foamy, light-tan with limited retention, although it was already beginning to evince some great lacing. Color was more coppery than brown (SRM = ~ 22), but with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a really malty sweetness and I would have sworn that I was drinking an ale! Mouthfeel was medium-to-full and the taste was kind of chocolaty, sort of nutty and VERY reminiscent of Newcastle Brown Ale. Did I just type that? Well, I kid you not and if this is a lager, then I am deeply impressed! The hops were not what the verbiage had led me to expect as they were pretty much not discernible but the finish had the same sweet malt flavors that I usually get in an ale. This would be worth seeking out as a novelty, but if you are into Brown Ales (I am not), then you should definitely see how this stacks up against some of your faves.

Poured to a great, off white head, with great creaminess and excellent retention and lacing. Appearance was a clear, dark copper color. Aroma was of malt and caramel with some fruit notes. Tasted very malty with strong notes of chocolate, caramel and toffee. Nice creamy mouth feel with a sweet to dry aftertaste, slight bite at the end.
