Tire Bite Golden Ale

Brewer: Flying Dog
Style: Kolsch
ABV: 5.1%
Country: USA, Maryland

Poured a pale, straw yellow. Clear with a small head that quickly dissipated.

Smell is not pleasant, biggest trait is sour wheat. Taste is very mild and fleeting. More of the wheat aroma is present with a bit of grass. Mild bitterness vanishes quickly. Watery and over-carbonated, this beer is bland and forgettable. There isn't enough malt flavor and the 16.5 IBUs listed is gone before you know it. A step up from a domestic lite beer, but not by much. Certainly not worth having again. D+
