Phillips does a Kolsch. Very drinkable, and essentially a good option to bring your friends who drink macros.

A bit sweet. Nice clarity.

On-tap at Craft Beer Market.
Pale yellow color, shiny white head, decent retention and some thin string lacing.
Not much aroma, light grains.
Light and fresh taste, sweetish malt, as a kolsch should be.
Body is thin, but average for style.
Pretty clean taste.

Bottle, from 2016 Phillips Showcase mixed pack.
Clean and fresh, as expected from the style.

I'm not a huge fan of this style, but this is an extremely approachable beer. Light, well carbonated, but with a biscuity malt backbone. In my books, one of the better Kolsch available in my part of the world!

Yellow like apple juice, with just a skim of bubbles on top. Crisp. Mildly bitter.
