Served on tap in a goblet glass at the Nook in Huntsville, AL.

Small white head that rapidly dissipated but left plenty of lacing for the entire drink. The appearance was a nice yellow-amber color with moderate carbonation that made lots of tiny bubbles. The taste was clear and crisp with a slight hoppyness and hint of fruity citrus. Nothing over-powering. A good late summer or early fall brew.

A coupel pours from a 4 oz. taster glass.

3.0 A: Lightly hazed golden yellow. No head formed.

4.5 S: Impressive for the style. Cidery with grassy hops. Wild apple fruitiness. Hay, straw, and a touch of earthy funkiness.

4.0 T: Surprisingly earthy with lots of horsey-type funk. Grassy and earthy hoppiness. Straw and a moderate bitterness. Clean overall.

3.5 M: Light body. Undercarbonated, but it might be the growler's fault. Could be creamier, but otherwise nice.

4.0 D: Good kolsch. One of the best I've had.

Smooth beer with a sweet taste at the end of every sip.
