White Street Kölsch-style Ale
An old-gold with a fine, white head. A subtle fruitiness aroma extends to the palate with hints of pear and melon. Crisp and refreshing.
Just came in from opening up the pool. It is not nice outside (hot and humid). Slowly cooling down and thought I'd crack a Kolsch open and help my cooling along.
Aroma: Mild floral/fruit and some grassy notes perhaps provided by the noble hops.
Look (Appearance): Pours clear straw yellow with a one finger white head that starts to fall very quickly. Good lacing as the glass empties.
Taste: Dry, light with a cracker taste on the swallow. Hops are present but not assertive.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light bodied with a snappy bit of carbonation on the tongue. Some hop bitterness lingers on the back of the tongue at the finish. Pretty well balanced.
Second Look (Overall Impression): This beer is made by my local brewery. It is a fine example of the Kolsch-style. As a refresher it does its job very well. Easy to drink and a joy to experience. I can understand it winning medals. Very good.
