Really just an average American take on German style lager but fails. Slightly burnt taste with zero complexity or flavor layering.

On tap @ Malibu Sundowner. Light golden orange pour with a white head. Grainy aroma, some grass, and a light floral note. A bit simple and bland. The flavor is pretty grainy as well. Grassy and floral hops, a little too much bitterness, and a hint of citrus.

Pours a light classic golden color with a think white head. A bit more deeply colored than usual Kolsch beers I’ve seen. Vibrant pear on the nose where I’m used to crisp green grape with Kolsch styles. Medium to full-bodied. Nice balance between the wetness and carbonation. Some sweet pear and a bit of green banana balanced with bitter pilsner like finish. The Nelson hops seems to present like Eastern European hops in this beer. More peppery. This is the best Kolsch I’ve had.
