3.98/5 rDev +2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled 3/21/14. Poured 7/1/14.
Appearance: Aggressive pour gave about a finger of white head that went away pretty quickly. The beer is banana yellow in color with a pretty big haze. Just about no lacing.
Smell: True to the style and then some. Spicy. Biscuity sort of malt. Hay sort of quality. Maybe a banana-y ester. Nice bit of hopping. Smells excellent.
Taste/feel: Damn that is tasty. First, the beer has an unexpected semi-creamy texture with some good prickly carbonation. The taste is great. Biscuity malt, spiciness from the hops, a banana sort of flavor, a little wheat character... finish is super clean and not bitter.
Really nice. I haven't had many Kolsch's at all, but this is my favorite so far. It's just a great beer.A light ABV beer that isn't light on flavor is always a plus. For the style, this IS outstanding.
Serving type: bottle
