4.21/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the bottle into a small stange glass.

A real nice golden and supper brassy body. Lots of sticking cola carbonation and crystal clear, with some small rising as well. Eventually the cola bubbles disappear leaving a mix of small and fast rising bubbles . Head is bleach white and very soapy, but has real good staying power even after a good period of time and rest. A real nice looking brew.

Nose is a bit of sticky yeast. There's a bit of earth quality to this with a mild earthy soily dirt and hop front. Hints of toasty white bread and baked oven quality. Fairly solid.

Palate hits the right notes. Light bodied with a wine like dry white simple table but without the sourness. Crisp malt and a fruity grape like finish, but gives a great toasted white bread taste. Extremely clean, but has a real solid malt backbone. Malt aspect creeps up slowly, not much of a big rush though, but subtle and pleasant.

Overall a real solid Kölsch, and probably one of the few that I've had that reminds me of ones that are German. Always in search of the ultimate Kölsch, the Kwest continues in earnest.

P-Thanks to my buddy Trask for this brew!

S- doughy floral hops. This is very nice, love the aroma. light on the malt as well.

T- A very nice floral and biscuity flavor. This is very smooth and very good. A perfect complement i dare say.

M- light and creamy. It is very smooth yet slightly chewy.

O- Honestly one of the best Kolsch's i have ever had....phenomenal!

Thanks to crunkchiggin2002 for this interesting beer.

Pours a light fizzy 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace with spotty lacing, over brilliantly clear golden straw yellow color.

NOse starts with light grainy malts, little straw and toasted hay, a pislner like nose to start, a hint of a fruitiness, slight wet hay like, just a touch of grassy hops I think. It almost seems like a pilsner like lager, not Kolsch.

Taste start with light grassy noble like hops interestingly, little fruitiness that builds and gives a weird but interesting tangy almost overripened borderline soured fruit flavor. Some light malts, little straw and toasted grain, hint of wet hay, all very light. A light clean and crisp demeanor, and juicy soft malt profile. Finish is is dry and crisp, a decent bitterness in the background with light grassy flavor, and a bit of that fruity slightly soured like flavor.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, soft and creamy, layered almost decoction like, decent carb.

Overall fairly impressed. Most places try to go overboard with a Kolsch, or way under and it has no flavor. For an ale this is loaded with lager like flavors which is great for a Kolsch. Nice malts, soft almost decoction layered feel, and interesting fruit flavor that gives and interesting and weird slight tangy like flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a nice bright yellow color. Very clear. Little to no head except a tight lace around the rim.

There's really little to no aroma coming off for me.

The beer has a very crisp taste, very bubbly, dry, light malt flavor with a sharp bitterness on the end.

Very refreshing. Very drinkable as well.

12 ounce bottle from Bruisin' Ales in Asheville, North Carolina. Bottled on: 08/10

Appearance: Pours a faintly hazed, golden body with a large, sudsy, near white head.

Smell: Sweetish, grainy blend of pale and pils malts with notes of hillside flowers and citrusy lemons.

Taste: Pale malts with some light sugary flourishes and hints of crisp grains. Soft florals tones and a taste of lemon verbena. Light bitterness, then a pop of acidity. Medium minerality throughout. Touch of honeysuckle precludes the dry, crisp, yet still smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation provides a modest bit of tingle on the tongue.

Drinkability: A fairly likable Kölsch. Good for the dog days of Summer, but suits me just fine during a coolish mid-afternoon in Autumn. Paired well enough with a grilled shrimp po' boy.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

bright golden yellow with a nice two finger head of white foam that quickly dissipated into a batch of nothing, a broken crown lining the sides was all that I would get out of this one. Nice carbonation and a bit of residual side lacing helped to push it over the top and made a really nice addition to the overall presence of it.

The aroma was rather bright and summer like, with a light grain and herb like fruit note in the nose. A touch of clove and banana highlighted this one and really did a nice job at bringing the whole thing together. The flavor was much of the same. Surprisingly sweet, with a touch of maybe honey or light caramel, hints of apple and light fresh hay. The banana coming though nicely on the finish with a quick, clean, and very crisp cutoff in the overall taste.

This brewery is local to me and I have been wanting to sample their wares for a while now. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that is impressive at first but doesn't stick around. Smells of butter and biscuits with a hint of grass. The flavor is bright and pungent. Lots of malt up front and. Aftertaste is floral and herbal with a great hop tingle. Mouthfeel is robust and slightly filmy. Drinkability is great with a low alcohol content and great, well-balanced taste. However, at $9.99 a six pack I'll save this one for special occassions.
