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.

22 oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass at fridge temperature.

L - Straw-to-pale gold color with a thick bubbly 2 finger white head. Crystal clear, pretty nice retention, a decent amount of carbonation, nice lacing.

S - Definitely malty, some yeasty wheat-like banana aromas, a hint of lemon, maybe a touch of earthy, grassy hops.

T - Sweet bready maltiness and honey flavors up front with some slightly spicy, grassy, floral hop bitterness coming in at the end. Perfectly balanced.

F - Light-to-medium bodied, mouth-tingling carbonation, with a crisp, slightly bitter, and very dry finish. Nice and refreshing for sure.

O - This is an amazingly balanced and tasty beer and is perfect for a summer day. You get malty sweetness and hop bitterness, refreshing dryness and carbonation, and a lower ABV to keep you going in the heat. As someone who's not too crazy about weizens, this is a great alternative for a thirst-quencher.

Poured from tap into pint at Sesame Burger. Smells of crisp fruity malts. Really full of crisp malt flavor, nicely balanced with some minor hop and floral notes.
Kolsch as really become a favorite of mine...and this one has as much personality as a Kolsch can have. Not quite up to Captain Lawrence for me, but very close. Very good and worthy of every good rating it gets.

Finally was able to find this one during a trip to the Upstate last weekend. Bottled on 12/21/11. Poured into a stemmed lager glass.

Pours a slightly-hazy pale gold with a lusciously thick bone-white head. Great retention. Sticky sip rings cling to the glass. The nose is sharp with grassy notes, lemon-lime, floral hops. Body is effervescent and lively. Sweet citrus flavors join arms with a subtle green hop twang that is lip-smackingly good. This beer errs on the mild side, but it is packed full of flavor regardless. Refreshing and tasty. Loved this one.

At Harry’s Seafood in Charleston.

A – Poured out a light and bright golden color with two fingers of bright white head that stuck around and left a bit of lacing.

S – Bready, malty and light smelling with definite citrus notes with a bit of lemon. Light sweet aroma maybe honey?

T – Very subtle lemon flavor to start right off. Earthy hops follow up with a nice light sweet flavor that taste like honey and light sweet sugar. Light on the hops but it shows at the end.

M – Crisp and clean with a light body and good carbonation.

O – Excellent refreshing brew here. Would be absolutely perfect on a hot summer day or any day. Solid taste with a lot more flavor then most kolsch’s that I have had. Winner.

Review from notes. Consumed at the Moo Bar.

A: Pours a golden yellow color with a large white, foamy head on top, very fizzy. Pretty good retention, leaving some streaky lacing down the sides.

S: Plenty of lemon citrus up front, grassy hops, and a little bit of spice. Faint bready malts.

T: Light bready malt mixed with lemon and plenty of grass. Slightly sweet finish with a touch of honey.

M: Light to medium bodied, very crisp and easy drinking.

O: Beginning to like Kolschs more and more. Another great beer for a hot day.

Very golden with mustard hues. Very white thick single finger head with good retention and lots of lacing. A very attractive brew. Aroma is as buiscutty as they come with some light banana/pineapple notes and grain mixed in. Flavor is heavy on the wheat and biscuit up front with transition to a subtle spicy yeast and noble hops like finish. Honey notes aren't there for me. Light to medium in body with moderate to high carbonation. An excellent kolsch which for me are usually too dry and bland whereas this one is not overly dry and has a traditional flavor with some additions to make it more interesting.
