UPDATED: JAN 18, 2003 Not the best Kolsch I"ve had but it"s getting better by the batch. Fairly dry, slightly winey, subtle hop bitterness, aroma, and flavor, cloudy. A little lifeless compared to other Kolsches. Contains a little of the trademark Magnolia"s breadiness, which detracts from the clean, crisp quality desired in most Kolsches and doesn"t really work in this beer.
2002-12-16 - Yet another rating of this beer. Still bready. Still grainy. Not a great kolsch. These guys brew some killer beers but should stick to what they do well -- English-style cask conditioned ales.
