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.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow on tap with fluffy white head that lasts. Aroma and taste of the typical cereal and biscuit grain with fruity earthy kolsch yeast behind. A bit of an astringent finish, maybe because I’m hungover, but solid easy drinker overall.

Poured a yellow color with aromas of light hay and some fruit. Flavors were grass and hay with some light pear and a touch of stale hops. Meh not bad but not the worst either.

Light and refreshing without going watery. More fruity and round than crisp and clean. Some bitterness on the relatively short finish.

Augdraught1981 (201) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2015
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.
