KelSo Pilsner - KelSo Beer Co. - Brooklyn, NY
An aggressive pour out of the can reveals a creamy white head. Although not a summer brew, this beer screams crushable beach can. A fresh tropical fruity attack on the front end unravels to a relaxed biscuity grain finish. Just enough linger to make you want to take another sip. The hazy straw color lends itself to the bright summer sun as a backdrop. As the beer warms in the glass (or can), the flavor thankfully doesn't slip into the "cat piss" territory (looking at you Sixpoint Crisp). Just more bready malts and passionfruit. If KelSo is listening, put some coconut in this and I'll buy you out of your stock. My experience thus far with this beer has been a few toes dips at different NYC bars, but this weekend we became good friends. Always within arm's reach, and always hitting the spot, I'm thankful that this won't disappear with the onslaught of pumpkin beers. So as we regretfully say goodbye to Summer, let's all give KelSo Pilsner a warm welcome into our homes and backyards for the Fall barbecues and cook-outs to come. Goes great with a hot dog and relish, just sayin.
