3.71/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A rough pour results in a clear gold body with a foaming white head of two fingers. Retention on this is pretty bad and eaves spotty rings of lace.

Graham cracker pie crust and some honey soaked white bread, a touch sweeter than most pilsner malts and very clean. Some citrus and grassy hop character with a touch of white grape skins and crisp green apple.

White bread, grainy cereal and honey sweetness in the malt. Grassy hops with a touch of citrus and white grape skins keep things light. Doughy malt in the lightly bittering finish. Tinge of metallic and earthiness.

Easy body but it could use an extra kick in the rear when it comes to carbonation which is very soft and lowers the crispness of the beer when it warms. Alcohol is a not factor and is pretty good at drying leaving behind only a slight honey dough sticky residue.

A very serviceable session Kolsch, tasty and clean but you also need to be in the mood for it. I prefer a bit more hops and carbonation but that's personal preference. The tall boy cans that Hess is pumping out are a thing of beauty.

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

On tap at Hess Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.

Pours a slightly murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is drinkable but has a better taste than smell in my opinion.

Serving type: on-tap
