3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I believe this is my first introduction to the Kolsch style, from an unexpected source - a South Carolina small scale micro-brewery rather than one of the original Cologne breweries - but according to my colleagues is indeed an authentic example of the style. The local source is a bonus I’m still trying to comprehend the appearance of this style but I suppose this is close to the standard of hazy pale gold color and bubbly lacing. Flavorful with a number of subtleties with pale malt base, lemon notes, and some honey sweetness. Very light mouthfeel but again I understand this to be par for the style. Clean refreshing finish. Different and enjoyable overall, I am definitely intrigued by the Kolsch style and intend to sample more. I also will keep an eye out for more offerings from Coast Brewing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
SOn draught at Charleston Beer Works. Pours a dense yellowish straw color with slight white head. Musty aroma. Light body. Effervescent mouth feel. Tangy character. Wheat flavor. Strong citrus-like flavors drown out pale malt. Crisp but not clean
. Almost Gose-like. A bit extreme.
