a - poured a one finger thick off-white head into an english pub glass. the body was an orange-golden color. not much lacing and sheeting here unfortunately.
s - citrus hops
t - citrus hops balanced by pilsner and bready malts.
m - moderate, a little on the thin side.
o - i had high hopes for this one and while it's a decent pale ale it fell short.

The label is a bit misleading, as it just says "Pale Ale", which led me to expect an American Pale Ale, but it turns out it's a Kolsch! Anyways. . .
Pours a fairly clear, golden with a foamy, bubbly white head.
Pale, malts upfront with some grainy notes, grassy hops, and light floral/fruity notes as well.
Medium+ body, foamy carbonation.
A well done Kolsch, easy drinking with a subtle, but tasty hop profile.

3.5/5 rDev -0.6%
poured into a tulip at 46F
A: Pours gold with a fleeting white head
S: Hops, lemon, grass, bread, hint of apple
T: moderate hops, good citrus, grass and a dry, gentle hop finish
M: light bodied, unexpectedly creamy, light malt, high refreshing carb. Well balanced.
O: Refreshing and thirst-quenching, but not what I expected from a beer labeled “pale ale.” I had heard it was more of a kölsch styled brew before I drank it, but my eyes read “pale ale,” and I wanted a pale ale when I cracked it open. (Strangely, I think I would have enjoyed it more if it had been labeled “kölsch.”)
