COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bright and pleasant beer features wheat malt to round out and mellow a firm Tettnang hop flavor. With Krankshaft, we lift our glasses to the Midwestern gardener. After a satisfying day of spiffing up your back yard, we invite you to cool your palate and kick off an evening of well-earned relaxation. Throw some whitefish and veggies on the grill. This beer compliments a hearty, healthy meal.

A bit on the heavier side for the style. The flavor is good and easy. A simple beer on a hot day in Chicago.

JPDIPSO (5588) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Lightly hazed, very light straw color. Fluffy white head with a nice clinging of lace. Orange zest and a hint of smoky wheat in the aromas. Smells a bit more like a wit. Light orange citrus in the start. Very light malt and flour in the middle. Slight medicinal hints. I guess when there is not much depth of flavor it’s easier to find faults. Not a crisp kolsch for me. 3/10

Keg at Links Taproom - Chicago. Pours clear yellow with a creamy, white head. The nose holds crispy cereal, straw, hay. Light sweet flavour with crispy biscuits, more hay, hints of lemon, cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean and crisp on the finish, with brisk cereal, fresh biscuit. Very solid lager.

Lemke10 (964) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 3, 2016
This pours a clear, light yellow color with just a slight head. The aroma is grainy and slightly yeasty like you expect from a Kolsch style brew. The taste is decent and grainy for the style. It’s light and easy drink with a clean, refreshing finish. Pretty decent beer for the style!

Yellow beer out of the bottle with a short white head. Nose of lemon and something liked overcooked vegetables. Crackers, lemon cookies, yeasty bread dough with some some berry sweetness. Okay kolsch.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2015
On tap at First Draft. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is grainy and almost fruity. Taste is still a little fruity with lots of nice bread. Good finish.

So few beers take me back to how wonderful I think I remember them from the 1970s, but Metro’s Kränkshaft is definitely among them. It even has the carbonation right. A lightly grassy scent with hints of lemon give way to a sweet taste and a finish that is just the slightest bit bitter. A super summer beer that I enjoyed from a bottle.
