Description 

Down from the Mountain comes our next Mountain Series beer. Our Kolsch bottles the excitement of longer days and the promise of springtime. The color of sunshine, this beer is bright and crisp while offering interesting complexity. It carries pleasant aromas of warm bread with just a hint of pear.

Upon first whiff, a low malt and hop presence was found in the nose along with a few slightly fruity esters as well. Pouring a clear, straw wheat color, the beer had a nice carbonation that featured a fluffy head of tiny bubbles that clung to the glass. In the flavor, a good balance of hops and malt was very light, crisp and dry. It had a nice, low, grassy hop bitterness that balanced nicely with the slight fruity esters. A medium mouthfeel and body coupled with very nice carbonation tingled the palate throughout sampling. This is a smooth-drinking Kolsch with a nice balance of malt and hops with the right amount of bitterness in the aftertaste. Flavors of grass and fruity esters complemented each other well. This beer was crisp, dry, light and very drinkable, and is highly recommended, especially after a long, hot day of doing yardwork.
