3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden
A - Pours clear golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty strings of lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of pungent grassy hops, pine resin, pale bready malt and some light fruitiness. This is one hoppy kölsch.
T - Starts off with some chewy malt and light fruitiness quickly giving way to the bright grassy hops, pine resin and some light sweetness. Finish is a little sweet with plenty of hop bitterness and a touch of booze, lingering on the palate long after the finish.
M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, hoppy feel from start to finish. Even with the above average hoppiness this one is very easy to drink.
O - I could drink a few of these on a hot day no problem, in fact I already have. The extra hops are quite interesting compared to the usual kölsch. Give it a try if you get the chance, it’s definitely worth it.

On tap at Pizza Boy. Really nice light citrus aroma and crisp hop flavor. Great light kolsch background. Faint tropical notes. Super drinkable and very dry.

Hands down the best Kolsch I’ve ever drank. It amazes me that a lager can have that great of a hoppiness to it. LOVE!!!
