Crooked Can Mr. Tractor

Fill date: 5/4/18

Judged to 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines for: 5B Kölsch

AROMA: Moderately-low, grainy-sweet malt aroma. Very faint fruity esters of apple and white grape. Very low spicy hops. Clean lager fermentation. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Clear golden hue (2-4 SRM). Moderate white foamy head retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderate grainy-sweet pale maltiness, slightly bready (wheaty?). Only the faintest hint of fruity esters. Considerable hop presence with firm, dry bitterness and spicy hop taste. Well attenuated with clean lager fermentation. 14/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; high carbonation. Smooth, crisp, refreshing and sessionable at 5% ABV. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Well-balanced, simple, but tasty palette that's mostly to-spec for the style. Great drinkability is nice of course. 8/10

TOTAL SCORE: 38/50
