Draft poured by Nick Floyd. Can this be? A 3F that’s not that great??! Well, maybe the tap was off because I tasted nothing that matched the style description or other reviews. I got a big off-flavor of raw grain. Mild citrus hop could not make up for it. I will have to re-sample sometime.

Had this on tap this weekend at the brew pub. Orange and turbid. small head gone very fast. Mild odor, slightly spicy, some hops evident. Very diluted, watery tasting beer, like a tripel diluted 1:8. Some spice, not much else. My least favorite 3F so far.

Split a bottle with the gf while watching football.

Pours light straw with a small patchy white head fading into a ring. No lacing.

Aroma is grainy with some honey and sweet bread.

More biscuit in the flavor than I associate with a kolsch. Grainy and malty and not particularly crisp. Slight lemon.

Medium bodied and carbonation. Finishes a little sweet for my taste for the style.

Went down smooth, but really not much to write home about. Kolsch is a style that I don't always crave and when I do there are certainly better ones out there.
