look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Nice golden, semi-hazy, bright yellow with quite nice head. Sweet and pungent aroma with a nice hint of spicy hop zing. Nice sweet and light malty flavor with a good light finish of spicy noble hops. Goes down with extreme smoothness, a light and refreshing beer.

Packaging: 12 oz. can
Glassware: Kölsch glass
Purchased: 6-pack from Midtown, Nashville

Straw-colored hazy beer with a nice sized white head. Good retention and a fair lace is left behind. Smells have a tartness to them, with lemon/citrus character. Flavors also have lemon for a tart taste. Also has what seems like a salty character. The finish is dry with lemon aftertaste.

Overall a pleasant beer that would go great on a hot beach in the summertime.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A-Pale golden color with a thin white head with little retention. Leaves almost no lacing.

S-Sour grapes, cheese, yeast, mild hoppiness, a touch of sweet fruit.

T-The yeast and cheese come through well here but are not overpowering. The grape flavor comes through as well and is a nice, sour complement to the sweetness of the fruit.

MF-Medium bodied with fair carbonation. Seems drinkable and a bit too watery.

O-My first Kolsch, so I'm not too sure what to expect. I enjoyed the beer, thought it was well balanced and nuanced. Overall, a drinkable beer but nothing that is too spectacular.
