On-tap at Flannery's, Mercersburg PA

For a true Kolsch I think this misses the mark by being too bold in flavor but on its own it has a lot of merits as a beer.

A= golden, with modest head.

S= some light malts, hops florals and hints of honey.

T= much bolder on the hops bitters than I'd expected, far beyond a true Koln Kolsch. Thick bready malts, again much more so than a true Koln Kolsch. But enjoyable.

M= lingering hops bitters and thick malts.

O= very decent beer but a far stretch to call it a Kolsch.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottle into a pint glass... not much head... Light white and fades fast even with a hard pour, maybe a finger.. Yellow translucent body... Smell is light wheaty malty not much else...maybe something citrus or acidy...
Clean taste. Light, seasonal... Summery... Good beer for the upcoming outdoor season.
