Cool bottle I picked up at my local bottle shop. I always love to see new Kölsch-styles around this area. 12oz bottle poured into a stange.

Pours a pale gold with a big foamy white head on top. Retained well. Some lace left behind. The nose is fresh with lemon, and other zest, and the common-to-this-style aroma of cut-grass. Nice mouth. Carbonation is spot-on. Not too sprtizy. Faint lemon flavors, cracker, bread, mild hops, and a crisp, dry finish. This is a fantastic beer. I'm gonna go grab a sixer of this this weekend if it's still around.

Beautiful, light gold with plenty of lace and good head retention.
Pear and tart apple esters are plentiful along with bready dough like malt flavors.
Have been drinking a lot of German Kolsches lately, but this Utah one can hold it's head high.
Mouthfeel is medium and this leans toward an ale for a hybrid, but with higher than average carbonation. Very tasty and fairly crisp though...a great Summer beer.

Hey! You do the hoo doo! Doing this do.. Right now. Time to Krush a Kolsch, hoping for a decent one here, so off we go. Bottled Jan 12, 2012 we are off!

Fluffy and styrofoamy white head, fairly large when poured into my Gaffel Kolsch stange glass. Dark twenty four carat gold, lots of large cola bubbles though. Looks alright, we got some good staying power on this head.

Nose is grainy malt, a little spicy and dry. Faint arid white bread. Gets better after some rest interestingly enough. Pulling out some white bread punch.

Taste is a nice almost German Pilsner thick body feeling sensation, but with a bit of simple malt chewy character, and a muted crispness. Finish brings the dry bread air like crazy, fantastic finish on this beer, of baked fresh white flour. Nicely soft with a little carbonation, nothing crazy though.

Overall just real solid, very enjoyable. Now that I see it's 4% I am getting another!

Attractive golden in the glass with quite adequate foam and lacing. Sprightly in the mouth. Has a nice perfumey hop flavor with the right Kölsch crispness. A kiss of malt sweetness on the lips with a welcome touch of bitterness. Tastes "beery" in a good way. Clean and well made, and a nice choice among the Utah supermarket beers.

A great light beer. Such an improvement over the standard lagers. Harmon's Markets in Salt Lake have single 12 oz bottles available of a bunch of the Uinta and other local low-octane beers.

6-pack from Total Wine, Charlotte (Park Road).

A: Cool label art on the 12oz “compass” bottle; pours a light, brassy gold and crystal clear; one finger of fluffy white foam forms on the pour.

S: Hay; grainy; pretty simple and straightforward... as it should be for a Kolsch.

T: Light bready-huskiness; earthy; sweet finish with a dab of hops.

M: Medium-bodied (fuller than it looks); higher carbonation; nice.

O: A nice Kolsch; good backyard / cookout / summertime brew for sure... I’ll definitely have it again!

A - yellow clear with 1/2 finger head. Decent retention with lots of carbonation

S - lots and lots of sweet malt scents

T - very well crafted and balanced. Lots of malt and slight crispness in finish. Very sessionable.

M - very full bodied and creamy for this usually watery style

O = one of the better crafted Kolsch style beers I've had. Extremely sessionable, flavorful and great for summer drinking.

Bottled on 9/6/11.

Pours a slightly hazy light honey orange with a 1 inch puffy orange-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy splotches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt/grain, white grape juice, and some nice honey aromas. Taste is of malt/grain, honey, and a grassy flavor on the finish. There is a very mild bitterness with each sip that quickly fades from the palate. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer and quite sessionable at only 4% ABV. I will keep this one in mind for summer cookouts.

Tasting notes from 7/10/2012; pours hazy gold color with a 1 finger creamy white head that was full of bubbles, faded and left a creamy layer around the edge.

Smells of sweet malt, grains, husk, light caramel, grass, yeast and floral hops; a soft sweet nose that's got a grainy finish and is very basic.

Tastes of sweet malt, grains, husk, lemon zest, light caramel, grass, yeast, wheat and floral hops; very earthy, with a slight hop bitterness and lots of grains that have enough sweetness to balance the earthy notes.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and very refreshing, with a light to medium body, a slick feel on the tongue and an overall malty sweetness that slides down easy.

A tasty session beer with a low ABV that's easy to drink and perfect for pounding or a hot day. Sweet and malty for the Kolsch style, which I found very enjoyable.

I had this on tap at T Brendan O'Reilly's and it was served in a pint glass. Before I knew it I had drank 75% of it and wasn't really taking notes, so here is my take on it summarized: A good Kölsch, solid, drinkable and not sweet with balance of malt and yeast with a pleasant finish and gentle toast from the malt in the flavor.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured with just under a finger of head and settled slightly but was present throughout. Light random lacing. Orange/golden color. Cloudy body with average active carbonation while drinking.

Smell: Cream, bananas, butter, yeast, bread, and sweet dough. The very bright creamy texture jumps right out of the glass. Solid yeast and malt backbone. Light hop presence. This aroma is simple, to the point, and delicious.

Taste: Buttery front hits the palate first. A solid malt and yeast body keep coming in waves. Little hop presence is found. The finish is a refreshing sweetness that is easy on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Easy, refreshing, sessionable, and drinkable.

Overall: A very enjoyable Kolsch. Uinta beers are always very solid and drinkable. This beer packs a pretty impressive punch for being 4% abv. Definitely recommended.
