2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild hop aroma with a fruity note. Flavor is of Pilsner malt, fruity yeast and light phenols (wasn’t expecting that). Clean bitterness and a soft finish. Doesn’t really say kolsch to me.

The head is good for a kölsch, body is golden. It smells sweet, malty, mild. The taste is malty, thin, almost not hoppy, bit yeasty, mild, boring - good for a kölsch...

In one word: Clean. Two words: Clean and light. I could go on. Crisp. In a way, this beer occupies the same bland/light/refreshing ground as countless other wretched macro lagers, yet without the industrial adjunct misery. Clinical in its execution, this beer goes down like water, but in a good way. Each mouthful left me wanting another. Slight hop presence sitting on a slightly fruity then nutty malt. lightly carbonated and good-looking. One of the most sessionable beers I’ve tasted.
