I want to like this beer. Attractive bottle, but the beer is just lacking in taste.
With such packaging I was really expecting to taste something special. I read the narrative of the process and ingredients, but sorry boys, you better take a trip to Germany to learn how it's done. This is no better than my own attempt at home brew. Drinkable but just.

I had this on tap last night at T Brendan O'Reilly's served chilled in a pint.

The color is a hazed golden with thin pale cap with fine bead. The smell has a fruity smell with yeast ester in the aroma and almost vinous scent with honey apparent in the smell with slight herbal scent of hops. The feel is good with gentle sweetness and subtle creamy and tanginess in the yeast texture with medium low carbonation with slight bitterness mid palate and mostly dry finish.

The taste begins with a nice malt flavor and mild yeast with gentle honey sweetness and slightly creamy taste with toast elements from the malt which supports the honey flavor and there is a light hop taste that hints at green tea with a herbal quality in the finish. Overall I could not find any thing to complain about this is a solid kolsch with a honey addition. I found this enjoyable with some lager qualities and it does not seem as strong as 5.9%, but the honey could be smoothing out the feel a bit.
