Saranac "Kölsch"
F.X. Matt Brewing Company - Utica, New York USA
Kölsch (ABV 5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Kölsch Glass]

Rating: 2.25/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 4/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 8/10

The pour was a clear light amber with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that hung around for only a short while, reducing to a thin cap and had fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a straw malt, herbal hops and a musty yeast with hint of citrus and a dusty cardboard odor.

The taste was very lightly sweet and a tad malty with a touch of citrus throughout, with the finish being a rather minerally with a light bitterness and had a dusty bland ending. The flavor lasted only a short time which turned out not to be a bad thing in case, with the lightly bitter bland citrus taste disappearing quickly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a carbonation that was just above soft.

Overall this was a weak tasting brew, with the only thing standing out was a mildly bitter cardboard taste. Most definitely not worth having another...
