Pours a hazy light golden with a thin white head. Not much retention, and just a little lace. Aroma is of bready grains with hints or fruit. Body is light and crisp with a good amount of carbonation. Taste is fruiter than is typical for this style. Some hints of grain and a nice sweet finish. Really good!

12 oz. brown bottle into a Foothills glass.
Bottled on 08/13/14
4.9% ABV
A: Hazy almost greenish gold color. Almost no head from a fairly gentle pour. Minimal visible carbonation. No lacing except around glass edge. Laces in thin sheets as drunk.

S: Musty funky stuff. Grapey. Dirty clothes?

T: Still grapey with a slight floral (?) hop bite. Wet cardboard maltiness. Distinctive and good.

M: Fantastic fine-beaded carbonation blankets the tongue. Slightly soapy going down but very good. Luxurious stuff!

O: Not much experience with the Kolsch style, but this will persuade me to try a few others. This is off the chain good and I will be buying more. M.E. hit this out of the park!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into a standard pint. The brew appears a clear pale with a white froth atop that fades slow leaving patchy lace.

The smell includes notes of fresh sweet bready grains like cereal with a faint herbal hop component blending to sulfur. A bit of a fruity touch across the backend.

The taste is lightly fruity with a cereal fresh bready grain aspect and mild herbal hops to contrast that does not offer up much bitterness which is fine for the style.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is super easy drinking and very crisp/refreshing. Per the style it is pretty mild and clean. If you want a beer you can down a sixer of with no regrets, this is the one.
