August Schell's Zommerfest

August Schell Brewing Co

USA

Schell's label makes the claim that this is a Kölsch-style summer ale. Unfortunately, having had only one real Kölsch in my life, I can't dispute that claim like I can with a bad Hefeweizen. I will say that this leaves a little to be desired. If it's 100 degrees in the shade, and you can fry an egg on your sidewalk, this might taste good if it's slightly above freezing temps. Otherwise, I'm a little disappointed in my first attempt at a beer from the historic Schell brewery.
