douglas88 (6010) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2014

mansquito (3385) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Draft at the place where they make it: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is slightly peppery, plenty enough hoppy in the most German way possible, and some grass. Taste is sufficiently bitter. Pale malts and nice bready backbone for the hops. I couldn’t call this a proper Kolsch. More like a hoppy German blonde.
