Debuting this week in Kansas City, Missouri is a new year-round beer, Boulevard American Kolsch.
Avid fans of the brewery have seen this beer once before, part of the Tasting Room Series a short while ago. Boulevards states folks became obsessed with it, wanting it to be brewed again.
Boulevard American Kolsch is inspired by the traditional German style, brewed with European pilsner malt, pale malt and a touch of malted wheat. The hop bill includes Saphir and Saaz hops.
Pouring golden in color, the aroma is of bready malt punctuated by a slightly minty hop character. With a light to medium mouthfeel, American Kolsch delivers a honey-like malt sweetness that gives way to a crisp, clean finish with a touch of lingering herbal/citrusy hop flavor.
Boulevard American Kolsch debuts on draft on January 30th, and in 12 ounce cans the following day.
