Illinois, United States

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed in homage to the beer of Cologne, Krankshaft is a pale straw hued smile in a glass. We throw in a little wheat malt to round out an easy Santiam hop bitterness. There are no Köbes to serve them up, but you should feel free to have as many as you like.

A very nice, refreshing kolsch. This hit all the right notes, with floral hints throughout. Extremely drinkable. Not my absolute favorite of the style though, as this was slightly on the sticky side in regards to mouth feel.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: Yes
