Brewery: Three Floyds
A short review of a beer I made short work of. Three Floyds make a lot of different beers. I mean a lot. Not just the crazy imperial stouts and magic hoppy light beers they are most known for, but also some interesting old school European, specifically German styles that really took me by surprise. This happens to be their take on the kölsch style. Not one I have a lot of experience with, but know its most enjoyable in the summer, which is when this was brewed. Now I had it on a cold winter night with snow on the ground, so maybe that effected the grade a little.
Pours a clear straw yellow color with a tiny fizzy white head. Spicy sweetish fruit type aroma, little malt and some hop character but mostly yeast and malt. Taste is very heavy on the yeast. Fruity and malty at the same time with a nice grassy noble hop tang. Nice medium to lightish body. Good stuff on a hot day, and probably the best American kölsch I have tried. Not really my style but I am willing to bet on a hot day it would go up at least a point.
