16oz can poured into a lager pint glass
(A)- Pours a hazy gold color. Some good white froth with good retention and lacing
(S)- Bright biscuit and cereal grains meets some dusty honey sweetness with a slight hint of orange and lemon peel
(T)- Some nice bright floral hop and citrus bits met with some biscuit-like grains. Faint sweetness on the finish
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Dry bittering hops meets subtle citrus and grains. Faint sweetness helps bring this around
(O)- One of the better Kolsch style beers I have had in awhile. LIght, but flavorful and balanced well

Really nutty flavor. Rather malty and quite rich. Sharp like a Saison. Less perfumey than some examples of the Kölsch style, and certainly a more robust mouthfeel. A hint of lemongrass and a nice fragrance. An interesting beer worth trying again.

A pleasant quaff, though it could use a little more carbonation in my opinion. On tap at Local Habit, San Diego. Brewer called it 5.8% ABV for that batch.

On tap at Hess.

A: Cloudy dark yellow with a minuscule fast fading head.

S: Wheat with a little mineral and a touch of sulfur. Apple and pear are present in low quantities.

T: Apple and pear with a little wheat flavor. Sulfur is light. The finish is clean.

M: Upper light in body with upper low carbonation. Mouthfeel is a little heavy, lacking the crispness I so desire.

Overall: Nice aroma and flavor. If the appearance weren't so cloudy and if the mouthfeel were more crisp and less heavy this would be improved.
