3.65/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz twist off brown long neck bottle with no freshness date to be found.

Appearance: Pale yellowish golden colour with a brilliant clarity, decent white lace that hold together quite well.

Smell: Clean grain malt aroma, very light grassy grain with a lemon and floral hint.

Taste: Big refreshing crispness, light to moderate body with an ample carbonation. Quick splash of malt sweetness and a fresh grassy grain flavour throughout. Hops come in with a spicy bite and clean the palate well, nice twang in the flavour but not overwhelming. Fresh grainy flavours stay with the taste buds far into the finish.

Notes: Easy to drink with a handful of flavour, on the label it says Kölsch but some say it is an American Blonde Ale … either way it is a brew I would want around during a hot summer day. Similar in stature to Harpoon Summer Beer.

3.49/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
