At Small Bar into a pint glass

A - Very clear yellow with a nice thick head. Pretty much dead on for a kolsh.

S - Bready malts with a little bit of german hops coming thu.

T - Clean and fresh with plenty of bready pale malts. Yeast kinda kills it to me...its like a belgian homebrew (likely WL550 or the like). Still close to being true to style but the yeast was just kinda plain and didn't match the malt profile.

M - Clean and freshing as per the style.

D - While it looks and feels great, I'm not happy with the yeast profile on this one. Its almost like a mail order recipe or something, clearly this is not the result of experimentation and refinement on the part of the brewer.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the bottle into a stange glass.

A hazy body, slightly dull, but with a darker orange and mostly deep peach yellow color. Some cola carbonation in appearance, most of it rising very quickly. Head barely forms a finger, soapy white, but settles to a thin puck.

Lemon lime scents on the nose in a nice citrus way. Slight grass and crisp malt sensations. Light and a little bit effervescent gas. Fairly alright.

Clean tasting on first sip. A bit of sharp bitterness while finishing but controlled with some clean malt sweetness. Slightly dry. Some nice crisp qualities to this, with a bit of missing malt density.

Overall though not a great kolsch but not a bad one either, certainly enjoyable.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color Kolsch with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of clean crisp cereal notes with light butter notes. Taste is also dominated by crisp cereal notes with light buttery notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Well done for style with limited buttery notes and refreshing taste overall.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Mildly chill hazed golden colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells light and mildly sweet with a little fruitiness and a grassy hop aroma. Nice noble hop with a base of biscuit malt. Toasted grain aroma, it is a good lager scent.

Starts out mild and yeasty. Moderate hop bitterness. Mostly toasted grain with some fruity elements. Hops are grassy.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a pretty decent and refreshing beer. An excellent choice for summer.
