Bomber shared by maniac. How have I gone this long without rating a Ninkasi beer? Pours a hazy straw with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of strong skunk, grassy hops, pale bready malt. The taste is doughy, grainy malt, grassy and floral hops. Thin-medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

It pours a nice golden color with little head. A skunky smell right off the bat. A smooth easy drinker with a little it of hoppiness. Decent but not my favorite.

~Earthy hop aroma with grain, slightly sulfury, not much else.
~Pours a very clear golden yellow with creamy lasting white head.
~Earthy hop flavor with light fruitiness, some diacetyl, but not in a bad way, grainy and wheaty, refreshing. sulfur
~light medium bodied with high CO2, crisp grainy finish.
~Enjoyable beer. Wish it had some more fruity character that ive gotten in other Kolsch style beers. Aroma was pretty weak.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy straw yellow with a one-finger white head and decent lace. Aromas of bready malt and herbal and maybe a touch of medicinal hops. Flavor is similar, as the bready malt leads, offset by earthy and grassy hop, accompanied by a touch of lemon. Light to medium body, generous carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a clean finish.
