BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Saint Arnold Brewing Company
Texas, United States

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Santo is a black Kölsch, which technically doesn’t exist as a style, but this is as close as we can come to describing it. Essentially it is brewed using a Kölsch recipe with the addition of Munich and black malt. It is light bodied and floral yet with a distinct dark malt flavor. Our goal was to create a dark yet refreshing beer that would pair perfectly with a plate of enchiladas.

The label artwork is by Houston artist Carlos Hernandez who is known for his Day of the Dead Rock Star series of paintings and prints.

This beer has a clear, dark brown color, with reddish tinge, and is attractive.
There is moderate to thin lacing on the glass.
I get a Sourish aroma and an astringent taste. I find little hop aroma. The bitterness is moderate.
The mouthfeel seems a little watery to me.
Overall, a rather disappointing beer, due to the aroma, taste and mouthfeel, which is surprising coming from a Saint Arnold product.
