Consumed at the Mill House in Greenwood, SC. 12 OZ brown bottle with no freshess date. Pours a beautiful crystal clear golden straw color with a nice fluffy head that hangs around. Nice sticky lacing too. Crisp, clean aroma of green apples and pale malt. Taste is clean, dry and refreshing with just the right amount of carbonation. Goes down almost too easy. Perfect with the Mill House Titus pizza. Had to have another.

Bottle drank at Good Luck in Rochester, NY.

Pours a light orange/yellow, with a thin oily head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like grass/hay, green apple, and some unfortunately skunky aromas. I don't know how old this bottle is, but it probably isn't the freshest, unfortunately.

The hop flavor is unfortunately a bit muted, some tea and leaf-like hop flavors, some slight grassiness, and a honey-like malt flavor that seems indicative of age. It still does taste good, but I wish this was fresher, or on tap. Still quite crips with a nice bit, but it could be so much more.

Light bodied, very crisp and smooth mouthfeel, keeps it drinkable. Medium amount of carbonation.

Not a bad Kolsch, but probably not the best representation of how the brewer intended it to be.

05/13/13 On tap. Nice and crisp. A touch on the bitter side, but it works well. I'm a stickler for having Kölschs served icy cold and in smaller glasses to maintain their crispness. Otherwise I find myself in a race against the Elements and we all know how that will turn out. Looking for this to be a summer favorite.
