2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Little Rock, AR. Pours a cloudy, pale golden-yellow colored body with a thin, frothy, mostly white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is thin pils malts with a light sweetness and a touch of floral fruitiness. Flavor is better. Lightly sweetened pils malts with a hint of bread and some decent floral fruits. Finishes with a light grassy note helping this dry and giving it a light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a light-medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, unexciting, but not a bad example of the style. Could be a bit crisper, but it does have a decent grassy finish.

I’m glad I get to add a new beer to Vinos, as this will most likely serve as my last Vinos rating. Though I have sampled quite a few of their beers over the last year, I don’t expect to be back in Little Rock anytime soon, so farewell Vinos, keep up the good work of making some of the best micro brews in Little Rock, and some of the best calzones too! As for this beer, I thought it came out a solid Kolsch, it is certainly not the best thing Vinos makes, but it was a more then adequate example of the style. It is a light, soft-drinking beer that works reasonably well in my opinion. Thanks for another solid offering Vinos - I’ll miss your chill atmosphere and cheap beer prices!
