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.

It looks like a Kolsch, hazy yet bright pale gold with a barely off-white pillow of head kept up by constant slow bubbling from the bottom of the glass. After reaching a full two fingers and looking like a shot of rolling hills, it very slowly ebbs to a full finger, from which it recedes no further. It's looking both fluffy and rocky, not to mention plenty tight. Lacing's not as sticky as I'd think given the strength and consistency, but it's not bad.
This is a good representation of the style: lightly lemony, dry, and vinous. Some grains come through underneath beginning in the middle and carrying through. The light spiciness and grassy notes of noble hops are present. The profile is here, with decent complexity. It's solid for a beer that's by no means a beast. That said, just a little bit more would give it something.
Carbonation is steady. The body is light but might lean just barely too close to medium for this cunningly subtle style. Crispness is biting and consistent.
