A Kolsh is not an ale. What a disappointment.

Draft at Buffalo Wild Wings in Germantown, TN. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. You never know what to expect from a golden ale bit this was a very good beer. This would be a staple in my refrigerator if I had access to it.

On tap in Memphis. My first Ghost River beer. Actually not a bad brew. Light but has some decent flavor. Better than any macro they had.

Pale auburn draft pour with thick white foam. Biscuit and floral nose. Floral creamy wheat flavors. Lite and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Overall a little too wheaty.

Sadly, this is a lackluster golden little or no single element that allows it to stand up, much less stand out with the competition.
