Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Had some bad experiences with previous Round Barn offerings, but that don't stop me never. Ever. Call me crazy. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear straw-brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises flowers, vague bread, and a few mild touches of lemon and green apple. The taste brings in more of the same, the bread leaning toward sourdough without fully committing, and a vein of grass running through the proceedings. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, a pretty damn tasty kolsch, I must say. It's clean, it's crisp, and it's something I rarely say about beers: it's "refreshing". Good times.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 1/29/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, toast, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, toast, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, toast, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice kolsch style! All around good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
