Bottle, poured into pint glass

A- Pours a pale yellow color with a small fizzy white head that reduces to a small film on top, leaving no lacing behind 3.5

S- sweet malt mixes with white grape skin and some faint floral and grassy hop aroma, toasted grain closes it out 3

T- chalky and grainy up front, watery malt, lightly hopped with floral hops, hint of grape skin, bone dry finish 3

M- light bodied with moderate spritzy carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp, bone dry finish 3.5

O- a decent take on the style, easy to drink but nothing really stands out 3

Yet another new one to me, from the Saranac summer twelvepack which contained pairs of six different brews, all with 1/31/14 dates on them, which I purchased a couple of weeks ago.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a: Clear amber with a finger thick white head which receded quickly to thin surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: Nothing particularly detectable. Slight malt

t: Medium bready malt with hints of sweetness and light fruit. Dry finish.

m: Light to moderate, good body.

o: Decent enough kolsch, that is an ale almost masquerading as a lager with some extra heft to it. One reviewer below called it boring and that underscores the lack of much distinctive taste. Better than most mainstream lagers though, a good warm weather refresher if you like something with a bit more presence than most pilseners or light lagers. However you may find other kolsches with more fruit tones than this one.
