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.

Anemic slightly sweet beerish stuff.

Giant stiff beehive of a head in a tall pilsener and a shorter glass. Totally foams up, though it doesn't dissipate like foamers usually do. Very flat in the mouth, though. On the cloudy side. Totally lacks crispness, which is why you would bother with a pale undistinguished sort of ale. Still, after it warms up it has some decent flavors. Faint hint of hops. More malty than a German Kolsch, I would think.

Quite drinkable, but carbonation melts in your glass, not in your mouth. More like decent extract homebrew. Utterly forgettable.

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.
