Pour from a 12oz bottle into a pokal... beer is a clear pale straw gold with a fizzy one-finger head th had quickly disappears to nothing. No lacing.

Aroma is light, just a bare hint of hops and sweet malt.

Flavor is sweet up front, light white grape and pear notes, leading to a slightly dry green tea-like finish. Very mild and delicate.

Mouth feel is light, crisp, refreshing. Highly carbonated.

Overall, a nice beer in a rather uncommon style. Would have liked just a touch more hop presence.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Toasted malts, cereal grains, some sweetness,

Taste: Same as above with slight light bitterness and fruity notes.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, light bodied, a little chewy, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty standard Kolsch. A little more hop character and less malt flavor would have been nice.
