Reviewed during the last week when out of service area/Wifi in WY/UT. Full phone notes taken at the Watchman Campground, Zion National Park, UT.

A- Poured from the bottle with a light golden, slightly hazy body to a chalice. A white crown tops the beer with a foamy, creamy texture and it reaches just over one finger high. Decent retention. A thick ring and some pillows remain and lace sticks behind in sheets.

S- Mild aromatics with notes of yeast bread, pale fruits, slight citrus and some herbal spicy notes. Not much in the way of hops or malts.

T- Some hops seem to open up to provide another angle to the flavor. They are herbal and spicy probably of the Noble varieties. Notes of light cracked Pils grain, cereal, lemon zest, light fruits, wheat crust and bread form the base.

MF- Silky and foamy light end body. Carbonation is at a medium level and each sip feels crisp and smooth. Lightly bitter in the finish.

Drinks mild but provides plenty of flavor with the yeast doing much of the work while spicy hops smooth things out. Has a nice crusty bread feel I enjoy with the other flavors presented. Great in the Utah heat.

Bottled On: 9/22/11

Pours a nice clean/clear golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy white head, with some minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, sweet, with a little hop note. The taste is sweet, malty, slightly hoppy. Medium Body. A pretty tasty brew, a nice thrist quencher.

Pours a clear golden yellow color with a rough white head that fades quickly leaving little chunks of lacing.

Smells of slight fruity and grassy notes.

Tastes of the grainy sweetness mostly. Fairly light with some bread and a bit of grape like notes. Hops are hidden a little, but do come through as it warms adding a grassy and floral touch.

Mouthfeel is light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nice refreshing beer and it is quite enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Best Before: 07/21/13.

Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow body with a tall, proud, white head. Drips and blurbs of lacing on the way down.

Smell: Easy-going malts, a little sun-dried hay, a touch of crustless white loaf bread. Fruity-scented accents smelling of apple and sweet white grapes. Thin sliver of hoppiness.

Taste: Soft maltiness, though, with a skosh more cereal sweetness than expected. A touch of sulphury apple lands early, a few drips of white wine. Lightly herbal hops, lightly bitter. Sweetish, fruityish finish with a good mouth of suds.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Refreshing, easy-drinking. Solid enough for an American-born Kölsch.

Ok, so not quite a great kolsch, but pretty good and easy drinking.

Light and biscuity, with a touch of grain huskiness. It does maintain a steady body throughout and a tight crispness on the end. this is a nice session beer that doulbes as a good summer ale

This is a very good, solid kolsch.

Deep gold, it has a medium-big off-white head slowly shrinking to thin foamy ring, a little bit of lace.

Aroma is nice bright grain, flowery herbs (gentle), a firm, nice kolsch.

Taste is nice, full fruity grain, apple, hint of faint herb and flowers, with a mostly grassy bitterness, which is light and balances the light sweetness. Overall, it's fairly dry, very minerally, crisp.
