Our take on a kolsch style ale that is soft on the palate with a delicate malt flavor. Balanced with a touch of wheat and honey notes .Dry and wine like with a flowery hop finish.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber in to a tall fluted pilsner glass. Pale and straw yellow with exceptional clarity and copious amounts of active carbonation. Like watching the aerator in a golden-lit fish tank. Kind of mesmerizing. There's a nice crown of soft white foam with impressive staying power and scalloped ridges. A very lovely appearance. The aroma is soft and floral. If a beer could smell graceful, this would be the one. The taste brings a mild honey sweetness with subtle, balanced, flowery hops. The woody finish is clean and neat with just a suggestion of dinner roll bread flavor. The spritzy, biting carbonation makes the beer quenching, while the balanced body adds to the refreshment. This is the best Kolsch I've had to date. It's simple, delicious, measured, and crisp. It just hits all the right spots. I was ready to resign the Kolsch category to a poor lager imitation, but this one has renewed my hopes that there are world class varieties out there worth the distinction.

Had this on 2015-01-06 in Spartanburg, SC at Wild Ace.

Flower, bread, honey, good hop bitterness, crisp, good feel. Very nice.

A classic golden German ale. Crisp with a lively wheat twang and smooth light mouthfeel. Great malt core with soft honeyed presence and a dry clean finish. Great feel, superb drinkability. This was on tap at Fleet Landing in Charleston SC and was a perfect compliment to my fried okra, calamari, and especially the superb crabcakes.
