On tap at Hess Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.

Pours a slightly murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is drinkable but has a better taste than smell in my opinion.

Really nutty flavor. Rather malty and quite rich. Sharp like a Saison. Less perfumey than some examples of the Kölsch style, and certainly a more robust mouthfeel. A hint of lemongrass and a nice fragrance. An interesting beer worth trying again.

A pleasant quaff, though it could use a little more carbonation in my opinion. On tap at Local Habit, San Diego. Brewer called it 5.8% ABV for that batch.
