Draught @ CBC2013. Pours a golden hazy colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of caramel, earth and dry mango. Flavour of caramel malts, mango, tart berries, floral hops and some grains. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. It seems that there’s something a bit off.

Straight laced pine nose, white grapefruit coloured nose and body - with a hint of opaque. This seething bitterness continues to the initial taste, very tart refreshment with a reclining yankee hop profile with a sweet Sunny Delight orange all at once. Finish is a bit less tangy, syruppy malt sweetness. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had on-tap at Terry’s Terrace in Harrison Township (?), Michigan. I was excited to finally get my first taste of Kuhnhenn.
Appearance: Well, it looks like a pale ale. There’s a finger or so of head that sticks around awhile. The lacing hangs in there for about the first half of the pint, and then it goes away.
Smell: It’s just... nice. What more is there to say. The most noticeable aroma is the hops, but it’s not a huge burst... just a nice, Fruity Pebble or Fruit Loops-esque smell that pleases the nose.
Taste: Quite honestly one of, if not THEE, best pale ales that I have ever had, as it is perfectly balanced. It has the aroma and flavor of an IPA, but it lacks the bitter bite that most IPAs seem to have. The non-nondescript citrus and cherry aroma comes through in the taste, and it’s just super smooth and tasty. If I go to a bar and want something that’s not as bland as BMC or quite as hoppy as an IPA, I’m going to choose Loonie Kuhnie. The aroma and taste match up nicely, there’s a perfect balance of malts and hops, it’s really not bitter at all (if you happen to dislike bitter beers), and would be a great sessionable choice at about five-and-a-half percent ABV. The mouthfeel is medium, and the finish is clean with a pleasant tea-like aftertaste (think Lagunitas IPA). Would love to have another.
