Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2004 The kolsch style is one that took me awhile to really appreciate, in that so many of the American craft-brew varities I’d encountered seemed so different , and they lacked any true cohesion to essential characteristics. Some bottles straight from Cologne helped fixed the real nature of the style, and I’ve got to say that Mr. Hoops did a fine job nailing it down. Appearance: bright golden color, good 1/2" head of snow-white foam atop. Aroma, quiet, but pleasing hops, delicate fruit, notes of pear and green apple. Very sophisticated and serene, light, yet but with a delcious, honeyish tone that tickles the nose. Taste: a tidy hop buzz begins, then slowly slides off, leaving a slim fruitiness that softly dries on the palate. Light bodied, crisp finish, excellent flavor. This was a good one try out for the summertime, and an alternative option for those who stumble in looking for the closest thing to their normal light lager (you know the type, "what do have that’s close to Coors Light?"). Of course, it’s nothing like that stuff, but the flavor is so subtle, but still noble, that can just whiz past the less-discerning. Mouthfeel is just right for the style, largely clean and supple, but still possessing a low-key spark that rewards with each sip you take. Drinkability is huge. The name comes from the amusing notion put forth by the beer’s creator that not only will this be excellent relief for strenuous acts of grass-cutting, but stands in as a useful repellent for our true state bird, the mosquito. I guess there’s only one way to find out!
