3.35/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 18 April 2011 and served in a pint glass.

A: Light yellow gold, clear but with a slight haze. White short head dissipated quickly leaving a thin partial coat, ring and little lacing. Visible fine carbonation. Tiny bit of sediment added mid-taste.

S: Grassy and floral grains with a hints of lemon, biscuits and hay.

T: Lightly flavored; really a 'light' beer but with a notable bit of lasting hop presence and mild bitterness on the back end.

M: Light and crisp. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

O: Very good for style but ... As is typical for style, not enough flavor here to really enjoy on its own. I.e., doesn't make a good sipper. Best used to quench a thirst or accompany a mild flavored meal.

Pours a pretty foggy yellow. White head. Nose is airy grass. Seems almost like lemon on there too, which comes on the flavor profile as well. Beyond that it’s fairly crisp, though it seems somewhat unfiltered. Kind of grassy. Very mild earth tone. A nice drinker. This style gets chopped up pretty badly a lot, but this is a nice example.

4.06/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a very pale, goldenrod coloring with a thin, clingy, frothy, white layer of head. Aromas of toast and peppery hops. Light and clean on the nose. Flavors are toasted forward, with a bolt of pepper and dry, resinous hops. Very clean and extremely balanced palate. The aftertaste is more heavily toasted, with cut grass and bitter characteristics. The finish is dry, clean, and crisp.

4.45/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a regular ole pint glass.

A: Pours crystal clear out of the bottle, shifting to a bright yellow, almost some neon green hue shooting through. Really a beautiful color. Just the tiniest bit dusty in the glass. Very short and thin head, but with some lily pads of foam left floating. Almost no lacing.

S: Tons of lemon-limey tang going on here, with a shade of sea water. Definitely a lot of light graininess as well. Like saltine crackers. Floral hops with a sweet coating lazing around in the background. I'd hang this from my rear-view mirror for sure.

T: For me the salinity and minerality really show up front here, briny oysters with a squeeze of lemon. The hops wake up with a spike of bitterness at the back of the throat, and some attendant crisp, dry, prairie grass.. Very low sweetness, that mostly manifests itself in a starchy depth, like a lightly glazed croissant. Elegant and clean.

M: Playful, with carbonation that fluctuates around the palate. A really nice fluid shape that doesn't force itself anywhere or stick around for too long. Has its fun and moves on, for the most part. Almost too ephemeral.

O: This is an outstanding brew, and an exercise in care and subtlety, and it had to be given the transparency of the style and the ease with which it can be flubbed. If you don't like this, then you just don't like Kolschs.

4.05/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured out of a bottle into a glass. Head dissipated extremely quickly, though the appearance stays nice. A definite gradient of gold thinning out toward the bottom of the glass with lots of noticeable carbonation. Like watching a fish tank!

Smells weak but slightly sweet, Belgian-y.

Taste is complex, immediately great. Hits of almost champagney-like grapes (though the carbonation may be fooling with me), mild alcohol notes, tastes extremely clean all the way through the first taste to the aftertaste. Extremely refreshing. Really like this one, especially with waning summer months.
