Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, crystal clear, straw coloring with a frothy, foamy, tall, white head. Aromas of toasted grain and very subtle bitterness. Light nose. Flavors are toasted forward, with a bitter and slightly resinous hops character. Light, slightly effervesced body with a crisp, clean finish. The aftertaste is toasted, slightly buttered, and hoppy.

When I moved to North Carolina, I must admit that I was disappointed by the first few local beers I tried. So I owe Big Boss Brewing a big boss thanks for restoring my faith in NC brews, and it's largely because of this beer. I thought their Bad Penny was average for a brown ale (not particularly fond of the style though, to be fair), but this Kolsch just hits the spot on a warm summer evening, or perhaps simply paired with a gourmet sandwich at lunch.

The beer itself was light and welcoming, like any cold-fermented and processed brew should be, and was the color of a cloudless horizon just 15 minutes after sunset - a feather-light orange, but with lots of life. Big Boss claimed "bisquit malt flavors" and "floral hop notes", citing an intentionally dry finish, and I'd say they met their assertions with vigor. The Angry Angel is indeed angry, as she'll twist your palate a hair more than your average Kolsch (though we both know there's no such thing as an average Kolsch), but you'll love her for it.

Big Boss created a new favorite summer beer of mine, and they'll certainly be receiving my regular business. On that note, the race begins to try all of their seasonals!

Had on draft at Sam's in Durham.

Pours a golden color with a light head. Very light, almost nonexistent aroma of malts. taste isn't much better, drinkable but nothing at all to write home about. very dry and very "light" taste. not much flavor to speak of. it goes down easy enough though.

Overall would not have this again. it's not impressive in any way. Maybe better for non craft beer drinkers to introduce them to something other than Bud Light.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Golden, clear, light carbonation.

S: Very estery, fruity banana, kinda over the top. Good hop / malt balance. Get some English hop character.

T: Tastes more like an English Bitter, but a little too estery for that. Really feel like this is fermented with an English ale yeast.

M: Low to medium moulthfeel. Fairly dry

O: Would not give this high marks as a Kolsh. Malt and hops would be good for a bitter, but even still would be a little estery.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some breadiness. Taste is crisp, hops, floral notes, some malts, bitter at the finish, refreshing. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

2.73/5  rDev -22.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A - Goldenrod, with almost non-existent head.

S- Smells of white grape, citrus, and grain.

T - Grape, apple, citrus, bitter fruit. Light grain profile. Dry aftertaste.

M - Moderate, to maybe a little watery.

O - Not my favorite beer by any stretch. Not repulsive, but definitely not even close to something I'd look for again in the future. Maybe it's the style, being more of a fan of malty, dark beers. However, I do enjoy a good pale ale from time to time. This Kolsch was a no-go for me.
