6/1/12 Troegs Kolsch


Yesterday was a very fun filled day where Me and my wife headed down to Hollywood Casino and then went to Troeg's to pick up some new beers and try their new scratch beer Troeg's Scratch #65 Kolsch. I had this beer in a strange and it was fantastic. Just a good beer for summer. Easy drinking and a good taste that both me and my wife really enjoyed. Sadly they didn't bottle this beer and we didn't think about getting a growler of it until after we left. If you have a chance to get down to Troeg's in the near future I definitely recommend getting down there to try this delicious beer. It had a nice 2" head that was off white and foamy. The head dissipated slowly and had just a clean crisp taste. The snack bar also just opened up there and I seen a tour going by when we were there. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.
