NoDa Brewing Company Lemon shortbread Kölsch


NoDa Brewing Company Lemon Shortbread Kölsch, 4.8% is brewed right here in Charlotte, North Carolina with plenty of lemon zest to have a Girl Scout cookie flavor, I think they are going for a Lemon Up which used to Savannah Smiles but anyway. Lemon Shortbread Kölsch pours a yellow color with a one and a half finger white head that fades rather quick giving off big lemon aromas with a sours note to it, almost like a Lemonhead candy. Taste is somewhat similar to the aroma with big lemony notes with a bit of sourness with a hint of a spice to it with very little to no shortbread flavor that finishes with a sour lemon flavor and continues on to the lemony spiced aftertaste with a lighter mouthfeel. NoDa Brewing Company Lemon Shortbread Kölsch is like a big lemon that does take over all other flavors I give it a C+. It’s not a bad lemon flavor just onesided on the beer’s flavor profile and yeah found it a bit refreshing and tasty, but not really a lemon Girl Scout cookie. The other three I’ve had have tasted more cookie-like than this one. But I would recommend trying it, I think it would be good on a hot summers day. Please stay safe at home and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
