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.

Poured a nice clear golden color with a three finger white head that receded quickly leaving abundant lacing. Quite nice looking. Scents of floral German hops, biscuity malt and fruity, cherry-like aromas. A simple, true to style aroma that is quite pleasing. Flavor begins with a nice biscuit-like malt presence, with a slight fruitiness, hard to discern the individual fruit but I pick up some apple and pear. This moves into a nice, clean, grainy malt flavor with moderate-low levels of floral hop flavors and medium-low bitterness. Finish is dry with medium-low bitterness, medium floral Noble hop flavors and a faint fruitiness. Aftertaste is floral Noble hops with a low level of bitterness. A very pleasant, well rounded flavor profile that is mild, crisp and clean. Quite nice. Mouthfeel is light bodied, smooth and slightly chalky with a moderate level of carbonation. Quite pleasant and quite easy to drink. Overall this is a pretty good Kolsch. It hits the style guidelines pretty spot on, and while it doesn't do anything amazingly out of the ordinary it is still quite nice.

Pours a crystal clear deep straw color with a decent sized white head that quickly recedes. Aromas of bready pilsner with hints of sugary and fruity sweetness and a very faint floral hop scent. The flavor is mildly sweet with a honey sugary fruitiness that mixes fairly well with the doughy bready malts. Crisp spicy hop bitterness and a touch of carbonic bite balance this fairly well. Light to medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. Nice summer brew.
