Vault Kolsch

Posted: November 8, 2015 in Kolsch, Reviews, Vault Brewing Company

Kolsch isn’t a style that I tend to gravitate towards. But, for some reason, I was really in the mood for one and Vault had theirs on tap. Let’s see how it was.


ABV: 4.5%

Style: Kolsch

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our German ‘lagered’ ale. Clean and crisp with notes of white grape, fresh grain, white cracker, and a hint of tree fruit.”

Random: It’s been almost a year since I reviewed a kolsch.

Vault had an Oktoberfest event where you could buy a glass (or in this case, a tankard) for $10 and you got $5 fills for the rest of the day. I really liked the tankard, so I got one. As a result, there will not be a lot of commentary on the color or head of the beer. From what I could see from the top of the mug, it appeared to have a thick, white head that was about two fingers. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing. The nose was very clean with grass, grapes and saltine crackers. The taste was light and clean. It had the same grass, but also some white grape juice, cracker and a hint of sweetness at the end. It had a thinner body with high carbonation. It had a quick and clean finish with cracker. This was a really light beer, but had a lot of good flavor. It was really crushable and went well with the wurst platter that I got to eat. I would definitely have this again.
