Blue Mountain Kölsch

As the warm days of Summer take hold, the day's length may be getting longer, but the day's activities also increase, leaving less time for enjoying our favorite beverage. It's time to look for refreshment in the form of tasty and lower ABV beers. Blue Mountain Kölsch 151 is one such libation that fills the bill perfectly.

Kölsch 151 pours a transparent straw color with a moderate white head. The aroma bready malt with a touch of sweetness. The flavor is crisp and sharp with a slightly sweet grain base. The hop profile is grassy, with a touch of citrus. A bit of bitterness comes through in the finish, but the aftertaste is short-lived and clean. The overall impression is crisp and refreshing.

The brewery's web site describes Kölsch 151 as their "lightest beer." It's a "light beer" done right, quite unlike those flavorless "lite" liquids the factory brewers promoted as suitable Summer refreshments.
