Thanks to Jwale73 for this bottle!

Appears pale yellow with a one inch white head that falls to a lumpy layer on top. The aroma is grassy, lightly malty and a little citrus sharpness. It is a hoppy Kolsch in taste. It starts with spicy hops up front some malt sweetness and fruitiness in the middle then it finishes dry and slightly bitter.

Light/medium body with crisp carbonation. A bit heavier than most kolsches. Overall it's decent - much more overt flavor than a typical kolsch which may be a positive or a negative depending what you expect from your kolsch.

12oz bottle poured into a Pint Glass. Bottled on 3/29/11, so right around 3 months old.

A - Pours a slightly hazy straw-yellow with a thin white head that dissipates to a slight haze.
S - Grainy malt, bread dough, spicy yeast, and a bit of earthy hops. Nice and crisp.
T - More bready malt with a touch of sweet caramel for good measure dominates, with a bit of that spicy yeast and floral hops. Nice and balanced, just like a Kolsch should be.
M - Crisp and refreshing, with a thin body and medium-sharp carbonation.
O - Solid example of a Kolsch, perfectly sessionable on a hot day.

This is a style that doesn't get too exciting but the Mother Earth version is not bad either. Pours a clear gold with a decent size white head (on a hard pour). Lacing is pretty good. The aroma is mild maltiness, fairly subdued.

The taste is malty with a little grassy hops in the finish. Pleasant and refreshing. Mouthfeel is crisp, the little bitterness at the end is good. Drinkability is fine. Would be a decent enough session beer.

This beer is light, clean, crisp, and easy drinking. It poured a golden color with a thin white head. Flavors of pale malts. This beer has a light body and is a pleasure to drink. This is a very approachable beer and is a great session beer for a hot day.

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 but typical for style; really a 'light' beer but with a notable bit light malts and some lasting hop presence and mild bitterness on the back end.
M: Light and crisp. Moderate carbonation. Clean, slightly dry finish.

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

{revised with Nov. 2014 sample on tap).
