2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Is semi similar to a honey bock buA fairly good Kolsch or Cologne style beer meaning it is supposed to be light, a good summer beer, refreshing, and more complex than usual for a lighter beer. Given that this is a refreshing summer lager that is quite sweet, with minimal hop bitterness, some malt in flavoring and with minimal complexityet having subtle honey flavors. Overall I would recommend this on a hot day and liked it. It is semi-similar to a honey boch and going with that is my 2nd favorite honey boch-like after New Glarus’ Cabin Fever and my favorite Kolsch bier by default as of 6-7-11 as it is the only one I’ve had yet.

Hahaha... "Kolsch." Right, fellas.. and my blond ale is a non-sour Berliner weiss. Anyway, this isn’t really all that great whatever it is. It’s kind of a mildly sweet ale w/ a bit of butterscotch and earthiness lurking around every corner. The bit of sweetness is cut by brisk carbonation, I will give them that, but otherwise, I don’t have much to say about this.

This one poured with a light head and a bready aroma for this style. It was slightly creamy, and had a slight herbal hop note. Good for the summer as the style is designed for it.

The aroma has grass and some floral scent; as I sip, I taste some malt as well. The taste is subtle; there’s some sweetness. The palate is light and somewhat astringent; it still manages to be pretty refreshing.

Sample at beerfest. Solid kolsch, one of the better of this style found at the beerfest. Nothing special overall though.
