Since it is summer time, I have been hitting the summer beers hard lately.
Got this beer in a make your own 6 pack at the local grocery store. The description of this beer on the bottle, already has me apprehensive...I usually do not think of German Kolsch as the typical style for a summer beer.
The smell is a little harsh, can smell some bitterness, hops
taste is similar to the smell bitter at first but the aftertaste diminishes to be surprisingly smooth.
Again I just don't think this style fits the "summer beer" style. I would have rated it higher if it wasn't trying to pass of a classic Kolsch as a summer beer.
This beer is average but fails in the summer beer category, there are simply just better summer beers out there.
