Colorado, United States

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This bier is delicate and pale with less bitterness than a Pils and less sweetness than a Helles. A subtle fruitiness is the hallmark of this classic style from Köln. Along with Alt, this is one of the last ale holdouts in Germany. (ABV 4.6% 22 IBU'S)

64 oz growler served into a marine corps faux-pilsner glass.

A: Pours a two finger wide head of white colour. Nice thickness and decent creaminess. Pretty good (4+ minute) retention. Great even lacing as the head recedes.

Body colour is a typical clear pale copper. Slightly below average vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Crisp straw and clean barley. Light floral hop character. Hints of light crystal malt. Grainy. Seemingly full-bodied.

No yeast or alcohol is detectable - nor should they be.

A pleasant aroma of mild to moderate strength.

T: Crisp straw. Clean barley. Minimal floral hop character, but it complements the malty build. A bit creamy towards the finish. Decently balanced, but perhaps overhopped based on the bitterness. Not much complexity, but then the style is a simple one. Some subtlety.

Flavour duration, intensity, and depth are average.

Likable but not up there with the greats in the style.

No alcohol or yeast comes through.

Mf: Crisp, smooth, and wet. A bit overcarbonated (even from the growler). Suits the flavour profile decently. Nice body and thickness.

Dr: Really drinkable; it hits style conventions on that point. My buddy and I would have little trouble killing the 64 oz growler. I'd get it again at a better price; $13.00 per 64 oz is too much considering the quality. It's not very traditional - which I'm having some trouble overcoming - but I do like it. A nice introduction to Prost brewing.

Pours a clear light golden with a white head. Aroma is straw, lemon peel, and grass. Flavor is quite clean with the straw, lemon peel, and a mildly bitter grass. A crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, a decent enough kolsch, just wish I ordered this in the summer rather than winter.
