Gotta give credit to Lindsay for picking this up for me while she was in Ohio.
Goes down really easy and smooth, but leaves a very, very dry aftertaste. Could be related to the "Kölsch Style" that is advertised on the bottle. Not sure the upfront flavor makes up for how dry it leaves me. - and it's not a bitter-dry, it's literally a lack of anything in my mouth. Very odd. Not sure I dig it.
Jason hosted the first ever semi-annual poker tournament at his house tonight, and Troy brought this beer with him. It was ok, I called it "German Miller Lite". A little bit heavier than Miller Lite in flavor, but still just smooth and simple.
I can taste the quality, it's just not exactly my kind of beer. It does go down smooth, but is very bitter on the backend/aftertaste. It's not terrible, and I will enjoy it, it's just not what I will make a regular beer in my rotation.
That seems to be a fair label, on the label. It's got a bit of a flavor kick - more than a typical pilsner. Not a big fan of the flavor. It's not terrible, but not something I'm going to drink a lot of, ever.
Today's entire trip to Indiana City was for the purpose of getting one of these bottles. Back in Novemeber, a big group of us went to Indiana City and enjoyed drinking a lot of pints of the original Mimi's Tabernacle, and they informed us of the batch that was sitting in a bourbon barrel. Yesterday, they released the bottles - and it is as amazing as remembered, plus a little more.
Sundays at Indiana City are about to become a regular event.
Half kit and partial recipe changes that I made. A Pale Ale, with Belgian yeast, brewed with three (drei) different hops, dry hopped with three hops, as well.
It's ok. It's not as hoppy as I originally planned, which is okay with me. It goes down smooth, has a little bitters in the middle, and finishes with an interesting aftertaste that I can't exactly place. I thought it should be grapefruit, based on the hops I used, but I don't think that's it. Anyways, it's ok. Perhaps my IPA Loving Friends will enjoy it more.
