Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

On-tap at Charleston Beerworks.
This has got to be the palest yellow I've seen. It's not urine pale like most macros. This is such a pale yellow it makes me think, "now, this is a real session beer."
I'm not getting much in the aroma but I think that's more b/c of the bar and less to do with the beer. I get some faint grassy type hops in the nose and not much else.
This is good. It's not going to smack you upside the head but instead it will just make you nod and say hmmmm this is a good beer. Sweet malts mixed with some light floral and grassy hops. It's the balance and simplicity that I enjoy in this beer.
Very light bodied and easy to drink. Nice beer to sit back and session for awhile while playing pool or skeet ball.

I had this on tap and from the bottle. Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. It pours a very light straw color. A 3 inch almost white head reduces to a nice lacing. Carbonation is definitely visible.

The aroma is grains with an almost grassy component. The wheat is there and I think I'm picking up just a bit of apple.

The taste is starts with a malty/wheaty note and then I pick up more of a grassy/noble hops presence. Interesting lemon component at the end.

The mouthfeel is light bodied, clean and crisp. Carbonation is slightly elevated, but that seems to balance the flavor. A very nice dryness lingers at the finish and there is perhaps just a hint of sour bite.

This is a solid beer. It is not my preferred style and I definitely enjoyed this. The taste that I had at the brewery was solid and this one, bottled on 8/10/11 was good as well. It is a nice, light, and easy beer to drink.
