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).

rumproasts (5572) - 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.

Slightly hazy golden with a thin white head. Slightly skunky aroma with some spice. Hoppy for a farmhouse ale, light bodied with a bitter finish.

ctipping (2201) - Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2017
750 mL bottle. Hazy orange body with an enormous head. Smells hoppy, yeasty, soft doughy malts, oats, and some brett. Tastes of bright hops up front. Immediately bretty. Soft doughy malt with a hefty oat flavor. Strong brett yeasty bitterness. Light body with medium carbonation. Flavorful and very drinkable.

tapefuzz (755) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 11, 2017
750mL bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a barely there white head. Aroma is hoppy, tart, and ever so funky. Taste is dry earthy hops, grass, pepper, and Brett-y funk. Light body. Lively carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel. At 3.4%, Jester King and The Kernel don’t extract all that much in terms of flavor - a little dull although it is readily drinkable - but a ton of character comes through in the aroma.

Bottle at RBSG. Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is dry and floral with earthy bits and some brett. Tastes gets a little dry and chalky for my liking? lighter in the farmyard, grassy, and grains. Can?t beat the label artwork though!
