Day #299 – Saint Arnold Santo

October 27, 2011

Rangers lost a tough one last night. Very rough. To cheer me up I’ve got a brand new beer from Texas!

Saint Arnold Santo

Santo is brewed by Saint Arnold Brewing company. It is being billed as a Black Kolsch, which technically does not exist as a style but that’s what they are sticking with. It’s a kolsch recipe with some darker malts tossed in. It has an ABV of 4.7%.

This beer pours a dark amber orange color that appears very clear. Tall white head sits on this.

The aroma is fairly nice. Definitely grainy on the nose, light and some caramel notes. Light fruit.

Has a light body reminiscent of a kolsch with a grainy flavor. Dark malts certainly bring a lot to this. Some roasted notes but overall remains light.
