THE thirst quencher! Brewed in the Kölsch style, it’s a refreshing, pale, delicate beer with a frothy white head and a lively aroma imparted by Saaz, Spaltz, and Perle hops.

Draft pours pale yellow with a light floral aroma. Crisp bitterness that is also light followed by a watery body with only a small amount of sweetness. Not much to it.

Tap @ OBX - Gold, thin white creamy head. Soft citrusy wheat and earth aromas. Light wheat bread and earth balance on hints of citric hops. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A well done rendition that’s quite the thirst quencher...
