Poured into a Sester stange. Pours a light straw amber with a big three finger white head that dissipates slowly go a thick cap, leaving lots of lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, wheat, light caramel and grassy hops, what I expect from a Kolsch. Flavor is more bready malt with some biscuit, light citrus, a hint of wheat and a mild sweet / tart element to the malt and a bit of grassy hops in the finish. Light bodied. A light, malty, good domestic take on this style, with a slight sweetness that is atypical, but mild enough to work out fine. A refreshing light session beer. Nice to see this style being offered in the states; we rarely can sample it fresh.

12oz : stange
Clear, golden yellow with a thick, billowy white head.
Grassy, lightly sweet grains in both the aroma and taste.
Medium body, fizzy, active carbonation and a lightly crisp finish.
A very well done Kolsch, pleasant flavor, easy drinking.

Hazy straw color with one finger of white head. Medium head retention and some lace left on the side of the glass. Smell is slightly skunked, bready and some herbal hops. Taste is similar to the smell with the skunk less pronounced. Some lemon zest comes on in the middle and lasts into the dry lightly bitter finish. Light to medium mouthfeel and adequete carbonation. Overall with no date on the bottle and sitting in a well lit non refrigerated space I must assume conditions and age may have hurt the smell and flavor.

Finally a Kolsch style from a NW brewer that is worthy of the association. So many others have tried and left me disappointed ...
Excellent as a food beer or just kicking back. The outstanding feature of this beer was the nose I got just when first opening the bottle. Mmmm, beer!

On draft at The Ginger Man, NYC.
Poured a clean straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a light pilsner malt.
The taste offered a cracker malt with a touch of noble hop spice.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a tasty and very quaffable ale.

22 oz bomber bought from Winco supermarket in S,Salem. $3.71 pours a bright joyful yellow ,slightly hazed, with a gorgeous plump and fluffy large white head. Malty,biscuity aroma with a touch of lemon zest andearth..nice stuff. Taste is much the same as the aroma but a bit of hop bitterness right at the end. Very nice mouth feel actually..thicker than expected and very smooth. Excellent summer beer.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.
Appearance: light golden hue with a little bit of haze and a pretty strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of pillowy white foam. Pretty good!
Smell: sweet malt with a light, yeasty breadiness and a bit of a floral character. This rubs me the right way.
Taste: lightly sweet with more yeasty character; this is quite floral and there's a nice bitterness which is maybe a little on the strong side for a Kölsch, but is quite nice nonetheless.
Mouthfeel: light body but a huge carbonation yielding a giant, awesome creaminess. Shazam!
Overall: a perfectly cromulent Kölsch. Quaffable, interesting and tasty -- what more do you need?
