Very decent attempt at a Kolsch for Dundee. Too light for my taste, but a good starter Kolsch

Notes: Dundee brewing is a sort of boutique offshoot of North American Brewing Company which is much better known as the Genesee Brewing Company that produces Genesee beer and 12 Horse Ale as their mainstay products. Dundee did produce a few slightly better than horse piss products when they first started out- some mass produced watery beers that were dressed up as microbrews.

This practice has thankfully stopped and they are now producing some interesting beers of specific styles ,which while not stand outs or radical examples of the styles,  are well made, if slightly lighter versions of the styles they represent.

Appearance: Clear, nice,  golden amber color with fine small bubbles.

First Impression:  hoppy, slightly fruity, grainy, wheat,

Taste: Nicely crisp, good if not striking.

Bottle: Standard 12 oz long neck brown beer bottles with an anthropomorphic German Shepard as a waiter on the yellow paper label .

Other: Brewed year round

Final Thoughts: Decently made but as usual for Dundee at the lighter, or maybe conservative end of the style spectrum. Probably a good starter Kolsch but not one for enthusiasts of the style
