Poured a glass tonight of the Kolsch, very light beer, as I suspected little to no alcohol content since I didn't get the mash temp up high enough... then again I'm only on the first glass, so maybe I haven't had enough yet
Very little head retention, carbonation is close, put it on 30lbs for the first 24 hours and then drained it off and reset it to 8 lbs and have had it there for three days...Its close, just a little more absorption and we'll be there.
The color seems a little off, but I'm using one of those McDonalds Cocoa Cola glasses so maybe that's imparting a green tint to it. The beer is very light in color though, you can almost read through it....
Crispy...smells and tastes like beer, but because the carbonation is slightly under it goes flat pretty quickly.
We'll have to try this one again, didn't quite hit the mark this time, but its not a complete loss either.
No bitterness, and the IBU's are nowhere near what you would typically get with say a Pale Ale.
