Four Peaks Sunbru

Making a lighter style of American craft beer can be difficult. Since there isn’t much to the beer, there isn’t much to hide behind. Stouts and porters as well as Indian Pale ales have malts and hops respectively that help hide blemishes. A Kölsch is a light German ale.

Sunbru by Four Peaks Brewing Company is a Kölsch. Wheat, lemon grass, honey, and graininess come through both on the nose and palate. The honey and graininess seem a little out of range for the style while also distracting me. Definitely an easy beer to drink on hot summer days but there are probably others that I would grab first. Enjoy!

Aroma: 6 (25%), Taste: 7 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 7 (35%), Overall: 7.1

Useless Fact: Stage bows were originally devised as a way for actors to thank the audience. The audience would or would not acknowledge each of the actors in turn, depending on how much they enjoyed the performances.
