Drank out the bottle. Nice bitter and fruity blend, nothing is too strong and it goes down easy. Chugged it.

Dogbrick (12770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Sample at Monk’s Kettle. Clear golden color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Malt, fruit and grassy hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, mild hops and fruit. The finish is sweet with a bready malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

22oz bottle pours a pale golden color with a bit of head. Crisp maltiness. Not much else.

An OK Kolsch, but not really doing it for me. Has a sulfury, hay note that just seems off. Pours a clear yellow orange, almost no head. Not much on the nose; tastes OK, usual bready flavor but with the off notes mentioned. Reasonable amount of hops for the style at least. Normally like this brewery but this isn’t my favorite.

Zymurgeist2 (2166) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Crisp, hay and spice aroma with faint wild flower. Moderately hazy golden with a solid white head that lingers as a frayed collar of moderately large bubbles. Collared head looks a little soapy. Taste is spicy with wheat malt consistency. Moderate low lemon. Crispness is there. The traditional kolsch yeast attributes are present. Overall, this is one of the better beers I have tasted from this brewer. An enjoyable kolsch.

This light gold beer has a mild wheaty aroma and flavor. It has a slightly spicy note as it finishes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gyllenbock (8987) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle at City Beer, February 2014. Golden orange with medium white head. Soft and easy to drink with hops, bread and some hay. Fairly light mouthfeel and with medium carbonation. An ok one.

A - pours amazingly clear straw with low head. S - simplistic light hop and bready malts. Lager ish. M - super light session beer. Like a more flavorful macro. Lingering bitter notes and malts. T - lightly grainy front with bready and biscuity malts. Like a lager. O - simple drinkable and quite flavorful. 2.9

Pours medium gold with little head. Toasted honey/honeycomb aroma, pudding, pale malt. Flavor isn’t so sweet, with vanilla and honey notes but a dry malty finish.

A nice rendition of an underappreciated style. Enjoyed from a bomber in Forest Knolls, a few miles from the source. Would have preferred it on a hot dry day post ride as opposed to actually drinking it in a thick norcal mist...
