Today I'm drinking Samuel Adams' Escape Route, a Kolsch brewed "to help escape those lingering cold days [of winter]." To which I say... LOLOLzzzz, hold on while I make my AC colder, it's freakin' 84°F here today. Enjoy Before May, 2014. 5.0% alcohol.
Muted aroma, but if you stick your nose in deep enough you can smell some grain, spices and a light fruitiness. Soft fruity start, delicate but flavorful. Apples, peaches, pears in concert. Lightly spicy, light cracker, with just a touch of grass. Oh, and that Sammy A signature herbal flavor persists at the finish. Nice creamy texture too. Simple but not unflavorful. Very enjoyable!
