Ibrew2or3 (7997) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Poured up via Kolsch pouring standards at Dom Fruh with pure gold body supporting a white head. The aroma strikes me as being decidedly floral in hops with some modest sweetness in the background. The taste is floral hop flavor all over the place and then it runs into slight floral and spicy hop bitterness. To about midway some sweet malts are met by malt graininess and they help take this floral flavor ride into the finish. A bit too floral for my taste actually and the mild malt and grainy maltiness did help out some.
