To start each new year, our brewers celebrate VBC’s anniversary by crafting a new and unique “snowflake” beer- always a fresh new recipe and never the same brew twice. This year’s snowflake is a smoked amber Kolsch (?!)- crisp, refreshing and light, with a mild yet savory smoky finish.

Rather mellow subdued amber-smoke aroma. Creamy off-white head. Filtered amber-tan body. Medium bodied, a pretty enjoyable brew. The smoke isn’t overbearing, balances out the amber malts well. Solid offering, Easy drinking.

Draft. Crisp koeslch notes and some rubbery and roasty smoke notes, not the cleanest smoke aspect.

madvike (3205) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Lots of smoke on the nose--dry meaty campfire smoke, with sweet grain. Taste has more of the same. Lots of meaty smokiness, some bready graininess, and a light hopping. Slick, thin, and well-carbonated. Pretty tasty.

On tap at Vintage, pours a clear copper with a thin white head and spotty lacing, aroma had a good presence of smoke and some pig meat, flavor is light and playful on the front with the smoke in the finish, interesting take on the style I suppose.
