I like this style and am happy to see more brewers attempting it.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head and showed little lacing but does have quite a bit of leg (clinginess to glass after taking a drink). The color is a perfect pale and slightly cloudy.
Smell: There is the expected grapey smell of this style but not as pronounced as I had hoped. For me, this is one of the main characteristics I associate with this style. Sometimes I will pick up a grassy smell as well but didn't with this beer. Overall however a pleasant odor.
Taste: This is where the beer could best be improved but I still felt it did a reasonable job being a Kolsch. It was a bit lemony (hop note) and grapey (malt note) with very little aftertaste, but none of it stood out. For me personally, I like the grape flavor to be pronounced.
Mouthfeel: Nice. A bit chewy (good) but with the light finish of this beer it dissipates quickly.
Overall: Better than average but with a few tweaks it could be outstanding.

On tap at the brewery. The beer pours a golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat and grain with some lemon and grass notes. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of wheat with some lemon and grape notes. There is a little bit of grass and earth from the hops, but they contribute basically no bitterness. Light and refreshing, this is a very easy beer to drink. Medium carbonation. A great beer for a hot summer day.

A: straw colored, slightest suggestion of head, no lacing
S: juicy juice,
T: sickly sweet, malty and very lightly hopped.
M: light, but not watery and decently carbonated. Refreshing.
D: pleasant, a little sweeter than than I like my Kolschs. Maybe even a little macro brewer-y.
