A- Clear golden with many rising bubbles, nice frothy white head

S- Not much to speak of

T- Light throughout, building grain flavor like a crusty french loaf, very light bitter component to finish

M- Moderate carbonation, light body, slightly dry and crisp

O- Not bad, refreshing, fits well with style

On Tap at Rock Bottom at MSP airport.

Appearance light golden, perfectly clear (filtered Kolsch?)

Nice bready smell, great malty, slight biscuit flavor. Nice dry but malty finish. I like the taste, but it's not true to the German examples I've had. Very flavorful, pilsner lager profile.

Carbonation dissipated quickly. Seemed appropriate. Very little head remains after initial pour.

Overall, very good summer beer.

3.85/5  rDev +15.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Decent frothy, white head that leaves extensive lace. Pours on the dark side of gold. Mild haze.

Clean creamy initial aroma. Just a touch of hop in the background.

The flavor matches the smell, although the hop is more pronounced in the swallow. The body, while rich for the style, is strongly cut by a high carbonation level. Short aftertaste.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Lots of floral and fruity notes, while still covering that really great hoppy bitterness. Gorgeous pale golden color and a very nice, light, crisp taste with a small but full head. The embodiment of what a Kölsch should be. Overall, a genuinely good beer.
