Slightly hazy amber color with a thin and thick head with low retention
Light aroma of pineapple and sweet pale ale malt.
Flavor of herbal hops, biscuit malt, with some papaya, and pineapple and lemon citrusy. Mildly bitter and dry aftertaste.
Watery body with low carbonation.
Refreshing flavor, very sessionable. A bit dull, though. Brewery says Kolsch, which makes more sense, although the name is misleading.
