[Tap] Tried this at the brewery in mid-September. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy head. Nose is of grassy hops and sweet grains. Sweet and grainy taste includes soft hops, thin citrus and cereal grains. Nice body for the style. Dry finish. A good Kolsch, definitely one of the better ones I’ve had recently.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
6/19/2009: Midnight Sun Kolsch has an aroma of light pale malt and grassy hops. These characteristics are echoed in the flavor: toasty malt with a grassy/Noble hop finish. It has a light bitterness. This beer has a brilliant, transparent gold color and feel medium-light in the mouth. Overall it is quite mild, but refreshing.
Draught (6 fl. oz. sample) at the Midnight Sun Brewing Company Loft in Anchorage, Alaska. Rating #14 for this beer.
