12oz Bottle from Wegmans Dewitt NY for $2

Appearance - Slightly hazy gold colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, grass, lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and noble hops. There is also some lemon, grass, and a touch of ginger.

Overall - Really well done and very refreshing. I haven't had many beers from this brewer, but I will search some out based on this brew. Reminds me a bit of prima pils by victory.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a slightly hazy light golden yellow with a mild white head. Some visible chunks floating in the body. A few spots of lacing.

S: Light malting, bit of a sweetness going on. Grassy or farmhouse type feel. Yeast seems to add the most to the aroma.

T: The taste is quite pleasant, a mix of belgian and german qualities. Malts are strong but at the same time light enough to keep this a kolsch. Low hop bitterness. Malts linger real nicely in the aftertaste.

M: Creamy mouthfeel but remains on the light side. High sessionability with this one. Finish is clean and crisp.

Overall perfect for one of the last warm days of summer. Light beer yet still full flavored with great yeast action. Worth a go.
