Lancaster Kolsch
(Lancaster Brewing Company)

The first, and thus far only, canned release from the folks at Lancaster Brewing Company. This one hit the shelves just in time for summer. Hopefully we'll see more canned releases from the these guys in the future. 

 

From the Lancaster Brewing site:

 

"Our NEW German style Kolsch pays homage to the traditional beer of Cologne. It pours a pale straw color and delievers floral hop notes and smooth malt character from extended cold aging, crisp, flavorful and refreshing, our German Style Kolsch is the perfect summer craft beer."

 

Here we go...

 

Pour - pours a golden, straw color that is a bit hazy and topped with a decent-sized froth of bright white foam. Some nice lacing is left as the foam slinks away. 

 

Aroma - a little grainy with some slight citrus notes. Not a whole lot to be said about the nose on this, the style doesn't have a very pronounced aroma.

 

Taste - crisp, sharp and clean. That is a refreshing beer straight from the first sip. Some grainy sweetness is followed by a lip smacking, tongue snapping bite of bitterness followed by a lingering tangy flavor. Some slight lemon noted can be tasted as well. 

 

Overall - I can honestly say that this is as an outstanding beer for a hot day. Its crisp and refreshing with a nice bite and very clean finish. Its like biting into the perfect apple, except that apple is in a glass and its beer and its awesome! 

 

Would I buy more of it? - absolutely. I could throw a 12-pack of this on ice and be set for a weekend. This may be the only beer these guys put in cans but they sure as hell did a great job with this one. 

 

Note - Lancaster Brewing Company is located in Amish Country and pays homage to this with their Amish Four Grain Pale Ale.
