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

12 oz bottle into pils glass. best before 08 2013.

A: a deep golden body. I wouldn't call this thing clear, but not exactly hazy either. head is tightly bubbled and has average retention. lacing is minimal.

S: a decent amount of pils malt interacts with a slightly tired kolsch yeast aroma. struggling to get any hop character.

T: a lot of fruit to start off. there is a really interesting flavor going on here and I cant quite put my finger on it. finish is very grainy. not a lot of bitterness, not that there should be per say, but some would be appreciated.

M: carb is mellow on a light, almost medium body.

D: I wish I could pinpoint this aroma/flavor, but I have to guess it is not desired. not sure exactly what it is, but I know I don't desire it. I have had this at the source, much better than this.

Bottle pours a crystal clear light goolden body with a small white head. Poor retention and just a few specks of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is subtle but features grassy and herbal hops, a hint of fruity green apple, and some toasted grain.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and crisply carbonated.

Taste has a prevailing herbal and grassy bitterness that is balanced by just a hint of honey sweetness. Clean but slightly grainy malt base. Finishes crisp and dry.

Very well crafted kolsch. One of the better warm weather beers I've run across in awhile.

I had this on-tap and was impressed. There's an earthiness in the taste that adds to the body and made this highly quaffable. I'll be picking up a six-pack shortly.

Appearance: very light yellow in color; the head disappeared quickly, nice bubbleage.

Smell: slightly hoppy with hint of grass, maybe lemon-apple too.

Taste: crisp, malty beer that has a slightly sweet grain flavor

Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean, dry

Drinkability: As with other Kölsch, this one is great for summer. It was easy to drink and light to the belly.

Not a bad beer. Pours a beautiful orange-amber color with a decent head. Aroma is extremely light. Flavor is also very mild with hints of hops and a touch of citrus. This beer is very refreshing and easy drinking. Crisp, clean finish.

8/9...pours medium dark copper. White foam layers, settles with a ring. Clean crisp nose but light. Taste has a nutty start, then fades into a light hop. Clean finish. Chewy. Bready. Much happening for something so simple.

A thanks goes out to woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very light, a tiny bit of malts, not much there. Taste is malts, grains, light floral notes, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but nothing special.
