Harpoon Summer Beer…..in the bottle….

Appearance-golden bright yellow color, very white head grows to three fingers settles down at two and stays there. Impressive color and carbonation in the glass, looks radiant and appetizing.

Smell-Malt appears in the form of dried bread, also light grassiness and the lightest bit of hop flavor, clean of any alcohol.

Taste/Mouthfeel-light mouthfeel, balanced light flavors of biscuit malt and the light touch of hops on the tongue. Grass flavors still here, alcohol appears, light and well blended. Flavors work together and flow, finishes clean with a last touch of malt.

Drinkability-easy to drink, clean refreshing.

Overall-a very successful Kolsch, easy to drink. All the factors add up to a success and I would drink this again. A great first try for this beer style.
