COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Creek Kolsch is delicately balanced beer style originating from the Cologne region of Germany and brewed according to Reinheitsgebot. Perfectly refreshing for a southern day or a stroll down the Big Creek Greenway after visiting Jekyll Brewing.

Only barley, hops, water and yeast are used under cold temperatures to give the style a dry quality. The ale yeast, which is unusual for a beer that is fermented like a lager contribute fruity (you may pick up a small hint of pear) and bread-like characters not normally found in lagers. Big Creek pairs well with almost any food, but simple foods like cheese and sausage are strong favorites. Kolsch is traditionally served in a 200 ML "stange" tall, narrow glass. 12.5° SRM 4.0 L.

Sour, sweet, lemon aromas on a pale pour with strong earthy, grassy and almost ester like pear flavors wrapped up in a crisp refreshing body. A good Kolsch hits the spot on a lazy, warm day.

On tap. While none of the individual ratings of this beer are high, it is well crafted and good for style. Refreshing and with more flavor than many kolsch.

Growler from the Alpharetta Beer Growler. Pours a clear, bubbly, light hay, with a big, frothy, white head. The nose is hay, dust, some light apple, and cloves. Sweet up front, with some not insignificant bitterness coming forward in the finish. Balances very nicely. Light to medium body, crisp, clean, and very refreshing. Overall, this is a very well made koelsch, with good subtle aromas, and a well balanced flavor. Pleasant to drink, and goes down easily.

On draft. Aromas of peach, honey, wheat. Cloudy honey color with a thin white head. A touch on the sweet side for a kolsch. A bit of a bubble gum flavor. Crisp finish.

Appearance: Straw-hued body, lightly hazed, lively carbonated, with a near-white head.

Smell: A light grainy scent and impression of sans crust white bread trailed by touches of dried herb and lemon.

Taste: Bright, lightly malted barley, a faint graininess, and low powdered sugar sweetness. Fresh lemon accent, faint herb tone. Has a satisfactory bitterness. The ample carbonation aids in drying the beer out on the back half and giving a final, little bite to it.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just a hair over medium carbonation.

Overall: A delightfully refreshing, low-ABV option in Georgia.
