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

Gold color with a thick coating head of white. Sticks as it falls.

Creamy nose with clean grain, ale yeast, and a kiss of spring bock German fruitiness. Not lemon, but maybe pomme.

Slightly spicy with bitterness and peppery carbonation. Semi-musty sour rind flavors, but no real pronounced fruit, specifically citrus. Crusty white bread malts. Not super dry. Well crafted. I miss the lemony vibe that I get from most kolsches.

Medium-body for a kolsch, which is nice. It doesn't detract from drinkability, however, some small strength is noticed. Carbonation is spicy and fulfilling.

A solid kolsch from Full Pint. This style is growing on me.

Pours a clean pale yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, sweet lagery malts. In the taste, a small sweetness in a fresh lager. A small bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry to nothing in the aftertaste. Really fresh, nothing exciting, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Pours a clear straw color with a white head and some lacing. The retention is ok, and the beer looks like it should for the most part. Clean, bready aroma and a bit of floral hops. In the taste, biscuit and cracker like malt notes and a refreshing herbal hop bitterness that has a bit of lemon citrus to it. Light bodied ale with adequate carbonation. Overall, it was a good beer for sure, complimented a cheese steak and fries appropriately.

Bottle. This beer is officially named "King Kolsch."

Pours a light clear straw gold with a quarter inch of sugar white head that dissipates quickly to a lacing.

Smells of light grassy malts, buttered bread and a bit of cane sugar.

Flavor is of grassy malts with light bready undertones and some crispness.

Medium body with a sharp stinging carbonation on the tongue.

A good flavorful otherwise light beer, great balance, very easy to drink and refreshing, highly sessionable. Would definitely throw a few of these back on more than one occasion.

The beer poured crystal clear and straw coloured from the bottle and had very little head but stayed as a ring throughout the drink. Lacing was minimal. Beautiful looking!

The aroma is definitely of sweet pale malts, some biscuity yeast and an almost imperceptible, unless you agitate the beer well, grassy hop nose.

There is a pretty good balance between the pale malt sweetness and the earthy hop bitterness which comes alive half-way through the sip. The finish is dry and slightly peppery. Some light biscuity yeast is present through the sip as well. Another reviewer mentioned cardboard, I'm not really getting that, but I may be confusing it with the earthy hops at the finish. I'm not overly familiar with this style it being maybe my 5th or 6th kolsch ever, but I think it's pretty dang good!

The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, a bit more than I have had, slightly slick on the tongue and dry. Carbonation in this beer is medium and quite nice.

Overall, I would have to say that this fits the descriptions of a kolsch that I have read and there is really nothing that offends me or seems like an off-flavour. I really like this beer and this style and recommend trying it to anyone. Especially if you can get it on tap in the summer!

Bottle label says nothing other than "Beer" with a tag on the side that lists this as a Kolsch. 34 IBUs. No ABV listed.

A: Very clear, very light yellow in color. Visible carbonation. Forms a fizzy white head. Decent retention, but it does fade to a thick ring and a patchy surface coating. Some light lacing.

S: Pleasant aroma. More hops in this one than I was expecting. A bit of biscuit malt, and grassy Noble hops.

T: Taste is good, but not as good as the aroma. Biscuit malt and a touch of toast (possibly Pilsner malt?). Hops are still grassy, but come off as more herbal in the taste than in the aroma. Pithy cardboard on the finish.

M: Lighter bodied. Medium carbonation. Moderate bitterness comes off quite strong on the lighter body.

O: A pretty good representation of the style.

A: light in color with heavy carbonation on pour but quickly subsides.
S: bread like but with light citrus
T: light tasting. Almost like a bitter witbier but with less spice. Slight citrus and medium bitter.
M: little dry but not bad
O: not bad but I don't drink much kolsch. I'm more of a witbier fan and this is almost like a week witbier. I would drink again but wouldn't but a six pack.
