12 oz bottle

A: Clear pale yellow under a very small white head. No lace, some retention.

S: Sweet, vinous, hints of malt and maybe a pine like hop. Very clean, very balanced.

T: Again, clean and baanced. Vinous, slightly sweet, a little malty, hop bitterness is medium, dry, crisp. Really excellent for me.

M/D: Light to medium bodied, carbonation is bordering on high. Excellent drinkability. This is a very good Kolsch in my opinion, and I would put it up against any domestic Kolsch out there. A beer like this gives me high hops for Mother Earth moving forward.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #36 (Jan 2010):

Extreme pale yellow color with a light haze; crackling white head has good retention. Aromas of shortbread, biscuit dough and a delicate floral hop. Quick on the crispness. A lot of malt flavor crammed into this brew; doughy with fresh-baked crackers and a hint of grassiness. The hops sting the tongue gently with bitterness, and the subtle flavor goes from floral to wild herb. Ghostlike sulfur in the middle. Dry grassy grain and herbal hop finish.

It's impossible to hide potential flaws in lighter beer styles. Thankfully, Mother Earth did not have to worry about this--no flaws. A great example of the style.

This is one of my favorite styles of beers and Mother Earth makes a great one! It helps that they are just down the road from me. Like a good hef, the yeast leaves behind a fruity, tangy taste, although a kolsch isn't near as yeasty. The sweetness is balanced by a nice hop bitterness. Hardly a hoppy beer, but just enough to bite the side of your tounge. I highly recommend this beer! In fact, I'm gonna have one now!
