look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Poured from 12oz bottle.
A- Pours a golden straw yellow color. One and a half finger white head shows light retention. Light streaks of lace left on the sides of the glass.
S- This was a light aromatic brew. Lots of wet grain in all around the beer with hints of lemongrass and light buttery notes. The alcohol is light and doesn't do much overall to the aroma.
T- Once again this beer is not very flavorful. Wet grain once again is the underbody of the beer with the front sporting some lemongrass overall. The middle shows some buttery notes which is overtaken by some grain notes. Lemongrass shows more in the ending along with a settle alcohol staleness. Bland and lifeless even for a kolsch.
M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Wet grain and lemongrass are all that is left on the palate. Aftertaste is stale alcohol, lemongrass, and grainy notes. Flavors were a little lackluster and underbalanced. Off flavors were present there is some light buttery notes in the middle. Light alcohol drying on the palate.
O- There is really nothing special with this beer. A average kolsch in a land of bland kolsch styles. Sorry Harpoon but this is average and therefore not seeking this one out again anytime soon.
