Goose Island "Summertime"
Goose Island Beer Company - Baldwinsville, NY USA
Kölsch (ABV 4.9%) (IBU 20)

[Suggested Glassware: Strange (Kölsch) Glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear pale golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a light scattered film and small collar with fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was moderately heavy of a grain malt, a hint of floral and perfume hops and a light moldy yeast with a note of citrus (lemon).

The taste was a light malty sweet with a hint of citrus in the beginning, and then became mildly hoppy with a decent grainy feel and a crisp bitter finish. The flavor lasted a long time following the swallow, with a light grainy bitterness lingering on for just a while longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery yet mildly dry texture and an almost lively carbonation.

Overall this was a decent representation of this style. It was crisp, clean and slightly hoppy, which made it a very easy and smooth drinking brew...
