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.

3.91/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: steamy golden yellow that just seems to glow. A pure white head that delivers a fine two-finger crown and leaves some nice sheets of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: dusty grains, soft floral, and a touch of lemon biscuit.

Flavors: a mild malty tone of fresh picked dusty grains, white bread, hard water, just a hint of a twist of lemon rind,

Mouthfeel: fresh, crisp, soft refreshing flavors, moderate carbonation, mild body, seems spot on for a Kolsch style

To the Point: I have reviewed 3 different Kolsch style beers now in the past 10 months and I have enjoyed each one. See: Shorts Kolsch 45 and Witch’s Hat Three Kords. I think I may have a new summertime favorite here. I did say 'summertime favorite' - I did not say a favorite style of mine.

The Round Barn Brewery seems to have a pretty true to style Kolsch beer here.
