This beer is not bad, but I would not call it a Kolsch. It tastes like an American Pale Ale, but the price was good ($8 for a six of cans). Its hoppy for a Kolsch.
What I did was make it a bit more like a Cream Ale by taking a 25 oz Rolling Rock, a 12 oz can of Lancaster Kolsch and a 1 liter Octoberfest mug and blend 20oz RR to 12 oz Kolsch.
Blended like this the hoppyness mellows out quite a bit while making the Rolling Rock better. I wish I had thought of this before the six was almost gone (I believe in 3 beers before deciding on what my opinion is).
If I get it again it will be to blend with Ballantines. My plan is two people, two cans and 1 40 oz of Ballantine. I think that will hit a sweet spot.
Have any of you blended “craft” beer with mass produced beer?
