On tap poured into a 16 oz pint

A - Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a tinge of green. A billowy 1.5 finger head. Produced really nice lacing as it was drank.

S - Smells like a typical Kolsch, has that lagering yeast aroma, a bit of hay, kind of musty beer smell. Some wheat malt comes through.

T - Tastes a lot like a basic Kolsch, quite disappointed that I didn't pick up on any tea flavors. I did get some wheat and a bit of lemongrass, which might have been the tea, not quite sure.

M - medium carbonation, light mouthfeel

O - Admittedly I don't care for this style of beer, but even so I'm trying to as objective as I can. This beer is nothing to write home about and personally a bit of a disappointment to me for the Fulton & Wood series. It just reminds me a beer you'd drink at a frat party out of a red Solo cup.

Served on-draught at Goose Island Clybourn over Paddy's Day Weekend. Reviewed from notes. 4.6% ABV confirmed. Served into a 13 oz stange.

A: Pours a one finger white colour head. Soft froth. Nice thickness. Above average retention. Body colour is a predictable clear yellow. Vibrant. Very appealing - especially in a proper stange. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Clean pilsner malts, bright fruit, pale malts, and I guess some light fruit character when I look for it - bright fruit/passionfruit. A mild strength aroma.

T/Mf: Clean crisp pilsner malts fill out the body. Good carbonation. Slight coarseness, yet still wet and refreshing. Bright muted fruit. Clean and pleasant. Light plum, perhaps. Maybe some tea-like notes. Light on the palate. Enjoyable. I quite like it in spite of its simplicity. Tasty flavorful stuff.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. Not the best kolsch I've had - and far from traditional - but it'd be worth getting again. A solid little Kolsch from Goose Island. Hides its ABV well.
