COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re delighted to introduce Colonel Toby — our collaboration with The Kernel Brewery in London, England! Colonel Toby is a hoppy little farmhouse ale we brewed with Toby Munn of The Kernel at Jester King last fall. Toby was kind enough to stop at Jester King after his multi-month bike tour across America. We’ve long respected Toby for his commitment to balance, simplicity, and restraint when it comes to brewing, so we felt compelled to make a beer that does justice to this philosophy. Colonel Toby is just that — a hoppy, simple little farmhouse ale, that we think is great for casually enjoying with friends and family. That’s what beer is all about, right? Colonel Toby was brewed on October 24, 2016 with Hill Country well water, 93% Crisp Maris Otter, 7% rolled oats, and Cascade hops. The 1.023 specific gravity (5.8 Plato) wort was fermented in stainless steel with our mixed culture of brewers yeast and native yeast and bacteria. Prior to packaging, it was dry hopped with Citra and Centennial hops. Colonel Toby was packaged on December, 2016 and naturally refermented in bottles and kegs. At the time of packaging, Colonel Toby was 3.4 percent alcohol by volume, 56 IBU, 4.6 pH, and 1.000 specific gravity (0.0 degrees Plato).

It pours dull hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has nice funk, dryness, earth and herbs. It has a light body with modest carbonation. The taste is very dry with paper, wood, dried herbs and crackers. Nice.

4.1
superspak (6368) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2017
750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass; Batch #1, bottled on 12/14/2016. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/straw color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, citrus peel, peach, pear, mango, melon, red/green apple, white wine, peppercorn, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, cracker, white bread, light leathery/musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, citrus/fruity hops, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, citrus peel, peach, pear, mango, melon, red/green apple, white wine, peppercorn, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, cracker, white bread, light leathery/musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast spiciness, herbal/grassy/citrus peel bitterness, and light lactic tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, grapefruit, citrus peel, peach, pear, mango, melon, red/green apple, white wine, peppercorn, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, cracker, white bread, light leathery/musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, citrus/fruity hops, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from tart/bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, grainy/sticky, and lightly acidic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.4%. Overall this is an awesome session saison! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, citrus/fruity hops, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Very flavorful for the low ABV, and never watery feeling. Well rounded classic JK house funk/saison yeast complexity, with nice C hop presence, and solid malt backbone. A really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Cybercat (6430) - Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2017
Pours hazy topaz with a snow-white head. Aroma presents fresh malt and tart pomme notes. Flavor features crisp, slightly tart apple and pear plus fresh malt. Mouthfeel presents rather thin body but OK fizz. A colonel of a good brew.

rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2017
bottle. pale straw with two finger head. it's a simple beer with a lot going on. pretty nice Brett character, solidly funky. light body, nice hoppy kick in the finish. it doesn't blow you away, but this is the kind of beer I could drink all day and never get tired of. slight band aid is the only negative. otherwise, outstanding beer.
