From my notes of the Pemaquid Oyster festival at the brewery from last year.

Clear golden orange color, light head.

Nose light toasty cereal malts, floral grassy hops, straw malts, light and crisp.

Taste has toasty malts, cracked straw, pilsner malts galore, floral and grassy hops, little spicy hop touch, clean and crisp. Finish is bitter and dry, little bready cereal malt.

Mouth is lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, decent profile, tasty, clean and crisp, drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a pale, light, slightly hazed yellow-gold coloring with a steady flow of carbonation and a light, bubbly ring around the surface. Aromas are light and clean, with only a slight floral presence. Flavors are light and tangy sweet, with a slightly sour jasmine end to the palate. Roasted grains and corn throughout, the beer remains light and crisp. Aftertaste is roasty and grainy, but smooth and crisp, with a light hop presence at the end. Smooth, clean finish. The beer is light and crisp overall, and would be a great hot summer day refresher.

In a pilsner glass this beer was a light golden color with a medium-sized white head. There was a bit of lace.

Grassy hops aroma, flowery, almost perfumey. Solid malt background.

The taste was a nice interplay of the grassy hops and the malt.

This was a wonderfully crisp and refreshing beer. Good to session on a warm summer day.

Stopped into Marshall Wharf this afternoon to pick up a growler. Figured Kolsch would be a good call for drinking lakeside.

Poured in a standard shaker pint glass. Beer pours a pale golden straw color with a pretty think layer of head. Looks like your average pale lager. Nothing too special to look at.

Smell is very crisp with a nice balance of malty sweetness and a lingering touch of bitterness from the hops. Taste is very similar to the smell. It's crisp, clean and very dry, There's a pleasing bite from the hops that works to balance out the sweetness of the malts.

The mouthfeel is quite light and obviously at 4% this is a beer you can make a decent session out of.

Overall, not the best kolsch I've ever had, but very flavorful and balanced. An enjoyable pint.

First had: on tap at Three Tides, Belfast, ME

If I rate a beer of this style above a 2.0, you know it's good.

Poured a clear golden-yellow with a nice white head that dissipated almost completely. Sweet malt aroma, very light and grassy. Good balance of lightly toasted malts and slightly bitter citrus zesty hops. Light-bodied and tasty, easily drinkable.

Served in a pint glass. About a quarter inch head fades to very thin lacing. Body is very light caramel almost straw; not hazy at all. The smell is very clean. A faint hint of malt sweetness is detected. The taste is nice and crisp with a great bitterness from the hops. This is nice and very light beer that is great for summer.
