Gorgeous aromas of sweet grains, flowery hops, restrained fruity esters and a honey-like hint are the groundwork for what’s to come in this beer’s flavor. Elegant malt flavors combine with refined noble hops, achieving a fi ne balance in this clear, golden-colored ale. Its crisp, clean flavors are well rounded -- an agreeable citrus/honeysuckle hop flavor is followed by a pleasant, moderately bitter finish that lingers briefly on the tongue. Slightly creamy and medium/light in body with no astringency, this selection scores as a flavorful, refreshing and well-constructed example of a historic, sessionable Kölsch. The classic stange glass adds to the enjoyment of this beer.
