Beer of the day #9
Goose Island Summertime Kolsch.
I'm always banging on about how Goose Island IPA is one of my favourite beers on the planet.
The Kolsch is their take on a summer beer, it pours golden and isn't overly carbonated. The nose has an apple and pear drop character.
For a beer that's only 4.7% it has a remarkable alcoholic taste to it which frankly for an English summertime is just right!
Other taste profiles would be a hop bitterness that's not out of place, the beer I'm drinking is at room temperature as my delivery interrupted this post but it's still very quaffable, I can imagine that on a hot summers day in Borough Market(try not to laugh too much) that this would be a great beer to sit on the patio with!
