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.

I was happy to see this on tap at the Gingerman in Austin. I'm a sucker for this underappreciated style.

As with most beers at this great bar, it was served in a standard pint. The beer is chill hazed gold with a fairly clingy white head.

The nose is grainy with pear and a bit of citrus.

Nice crisp Kolsch. There are grains, apple, pears and sweet crackers. Interesting with good balance.

The mouth is a perfect blend of carbonation, heft and a touch of slickness.

It is extremely easy to drink especially in the 104 degree heat.

Well done!

a very consistent beer. not riddled with a taste of corn like most american kolsch style beers. crisp... some apple malt qualities and some very subdued hop that just clears everything out. simple, and not astringent or acidic. tight in form and mild in taste.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow color. A small white head forms, and recedes to nothing in a second. Light lace is left behind.
S: At first, sweet malt. Some fruity aromas as well. Lemon, apples. Some grassy hops and some yeast. Deceptively complex.
T: Follows the nose. Sweet malt at first. Light fruity flavors of lemon and apples. Grassy and floral hops. Some yeast as well.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp, dry, and smooth. Easy to drink. I can quaff several of these with no problem.

I think this a very good Kolsch. There is a lot going on here. A surprisingly and deceivingly complex brew. Light, but enough body and flavor to satisfy. A great beer for the hot Texas summers, or just for an easy session. Recommended.

Had this beer a few weeks ago, so this review is from the notes I wrote about it. It poured with a light light golden color with a clear body. It a nice hoppy smell with hints of fruits, which I thought were mostly apple. I was surprised with the taste though because the fruits were not nearly as strong as they were in the smell. It was very light and crisp in the mouth. It would be a good replacement for any light beer on a night out. Definitely worth a try.
