Bee Cave Brewery Kölsch

Tasting Notes:

This tastes more like a pilsner than a Kölsch, though I'm using kölsch yeast. It ferments out dry so it is very crisp and with 36 ibu's, it's not sweet like a German Ale. This ends up just over the edge on the style numbers for ibu, abv, og. etc, but since I'm using kölsch yeast, it's a kölsch in my book.
