Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
For our first release we present our take on a Kolsch, a traditional German beer from Cologne, Germany. Built from the ground up with the best North American malted barley and wheat, combined with a touch of German hops, this beer has a slightly citrusy and sweet malty character with only a hint of bitterness. Our special Belgian yeast imparts a signature fruit and floral aroma, making it a refreshing beer for any occasion.

On-tap 11/23/2014 at Pour Farm in New Bedford, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grain, light caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with a big malt sweetness that is followed by a hearty breadiness. The hops presence is mild even for the style but still provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body overall but on the heavy side for the style, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, more filling than most other beers in the style, mild kick, decent representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

A - Arrived in something like a pint glass. No head, no lacing. The beer is something of a darkened orange straw color. Very hazy.

S - Light waft of banana/spice aroma. Pleasant.

T - Mostly follows the nose, but stronger flavor. Mostly dominated by the clove/spice character of the taste. Mostly yeast character, low bitterness. Slightly dry finish.

M - Not impressive. This beer is pretty thin. Not too much supporting carbonation. The slightly dry finish is nice, there is very little cling to this beer, no lingering aftertaste.

O - First of all, apparently I need to refresh my style guidelines, because this tasted absolutely nothing like any Kolsch that I have ever tried before. I hadn't heard of it before ordering, and I thought it was some new brewery's clumsy take on a saison or even a couple German Hefes that I've tried. Regardless of the style, I found very little going on here. Not bad, but not recommended.

Just a touch too sweet to be fully refreshing and the sweetness wares on you as you progress throuh the beer. Tingle to the mouthfeel which is unique. Some citrus fruit tang but it gets overbearing along with the sweetness. Worth trying and can see folks liking this more than me if they aren't put off by sweeter offerings.
