After we went to Reading Terminal Market, Katie and I headed down to South Street to go to one of my favorite restaurants in the city, Brauhaus Schmitz. Once we got there, it ended up being a 45 minute wait, so we walked down South Street to find another bar to grab a drink. This place was a hole in the wall, but had a decent selection of craft beers…not like Monmouth County. So, I went with another local beer.

ABV: 4.5%

Style: Kolsch

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This crisp, light-bodied, golden beer is the very definition of refreshment. The combination of premium German pilsner malts and American Noble hops aims to please your taste buds and satisfy your thirst.”

Random: I love how Philly has such an emphasis on local brews. It’s really nice to see.

This brew poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow with low carbonation. There wasn’t a lot on the nose, a little grass, not much else. The taste was much better than the nose. I got some grain, hay, grass and a hint of a mineral quality at the end. The body was light with medium carbonation. There really wasn’t much to this beer, but that’s standard for the style and that’s what I liked. There was no real booze presence. I didn’t expect much from this beer, but I loved it. It was thirst quenching and pleasant. I would definitely have this one again.
