COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

12 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a pale yellow color. The head is a one finger white shade with a great fluffiness and even some decent retention for the style. There are also some decent rings of lacing left behind. S: The first thing I note is some pleasant cereal grains meshing with a pale malt sweetness redolent of sugar cookie. There are also some lemony hints here and there. Not bad by any means, but I wished it were a bit hoppier and fruitier. T: The flavor works better, I think. It starts of with some sweet lemony touches, while the finish brings grainy touches. These aforementioned grainy touches work well, I must say. After a while, a twinge of herbal bitterness makes itself known. While it’s simplistic, this isn’t some 14% bourbon barrel aged monster brewed with coconut, coffee, the tears of Jesus, kombucha, green goddess dressing, and some old Dark Angel cassette tapes. Just like with the nose, it could use a touch more hop bitterness and fruit esters, but there’s nothing wrong here, either. M: It’s a bit sweet on the finish for me - this would be hella refreshing on a hot day regardless. It has a light texture and goes down quite easily without ridiculous carbonation, and that’s what I like from the style. O: I could definitely see this being a rock-solid refresher on a warm day. There isn’t much place for this beer in my fridge right now; but give me a couple friends, 100 degree weather, and outdoor work, and I guarantee a case of this will get killed faster than you can say "gimme that wheelbarrow, ya jackass."

brownaler (487) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Vanilla aroma with straw malt with a vanilla aftertaste. Decent kolsch for what many breweries use as a beer people who don’t like beer would drink.
