A smooth pick for any easy drinking draught or lager drinker, this definitely has the independent brewing touch that will appeal to seasoned drinkers and new drinkers alike!
The Good: To put it bluntly I rarely ever pick a draught when I am buying for myself, at a pub or even if it is on offer at a mates place and I am desperately requiring something to quench my thirst. So naturally coming in to review this Draught Kolsch Ale my expectations were at an all time low... Oh how wrong I was! Instead I was greeted with fruitier beer that I would usually expect from a pale ale or a lighter beer (this beer isn't that light either sitting at 4.8% it is one of the stronger ones we have reviewed to date). The other thing I enjoyed was the crispness of the beer, it wasn't too bitter, making it quite the easy drink to slam if needed.
The Bad: The most notable thing you will take away is the sweetness of this beer, it doesn't hit when you first sip on this beer but what it will do is linger in your palette long after. It's not a bad aftertaste but just noticeable (it reminds me of a time that Stu and I once drank a slab of Dos Equis between ourselves in one evening).
Enjoyment: To be completely honest with you I would happily drink this... A lot, which would lead to me getting really drunk (because the alcohol percentage sits at 4.8%) and then regret it the next day. That being said I would still do it all over again. As for lovers of the big name draught beers (Carlton Draught and VB to name a few) you will be pleasantly surprised and enjoy something a little sweeter without being looked down upon by your mates.
