3.39/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served up a translucent, medium yellow-hued body with a very slim, powder white head. Good lacing.

Smell: A bit weak in the aromatics department, with just light notes of pale malted grain, sweetish cereal hints, and a little accent of spicy-minded hops.

Taste: Slender pale maltiness, a little hint of wheat and an overall cereal sweetness. Never more than a very faint fruitiness. Minor spiciness contributed by the hops, its soft bitterness is accentuated by the carbonation. Near dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's a decent American-born Kolsch.

3.55/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance 3.5: Poured out a light golden, like so many well-known lagers. Nice, creamy head popped up and lasted the entire session. Nice lacing.

Smell 3.75: Nice nose on this brew. I smell the ol' lagery basics: grains, some adjunt hints, low hop profile.

Taste 3.50: Front is smooth and refreshingly dry. Middle is where some pleasant flavor of grains and noble hops come in. Finish is crisp and refreshing with more of an emphasis on the light grains. Aftertaste is where the familiar lager flavor-profiles come forward.

Mouthfeel 3.50: This beer is light in the mouth and as a result is very refreshing. Spot on for the style.

Overall 3.50: Very good, standard lager. I mean, kolsch. Anyway, it is certainly nothing phenomenal, but is a good, serviceable representative of the style. Here recently I've run into beers that are way, way outside the flavor profiles, standard appearance, etc., of the style (see my Magic Hat reviews). This leads to clashing tastes and just an appearance of jackassery on the part of the brewers. The folks at Terrapin really nailed this one; this is a good representative of a high-quality, craft-brewed kolsch.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Growler poured into a nonic pint glass. Slightly hazy, quite bubbly see-thru gold topped with a finger or so of soft foam. This soon settles down into a skim, then a ring of bubbles. A few lazy patches of lacing.

A sharpness in the nose suggests a bit of wheat in the grain bill. Pleasantly grassy and grainy aromas as well. Since this brewery's IPAs fall on the tame end of the scale, I'm quite surprised to find Road Warrior is dang near excessively hoppy for the style. A flash of grassy hops and citric juiciness, then a dryish, lightly toasted finish. Again it seems that a small addition of wheat may have occurred. A pretty nice take on the style.

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

A: A nice transparent gold color, had almost no head at the top, but did leave some nice lacing around the glass.

S: A nice fresh scent to this one, I smelled a bit of tropical fruit some malts, and a slight hint of fresh hops.

T: A nice taste, almost just like the nose, a bit of wheat taste up front and a little bitter, a nice balance.

M: Midly carbonated, a good balance to this one, smooth.

O: A nice beer very mild, a crisp, a good summer brew, This brew was pleasant and good flavor to it.

I had this 1 time release keg only brew in downtown Athens outside Transmet while watching the Twilight bike racing on Saturday night 4/30/11

A - A clear golden color, with decent head retention and lots of lacy bubbles left on the side of the glass. Very true to the Kolsch style.

S - It smells very fresh, with lots of wheat malts. Hops are not too prevalent in the aroma.

T - A well balanced mix of german malts and hops, with a slightly bitter aftertaste that surprised me. Light feel and hidden abv.

M - A nice crisp mouthful, as it is well carbonated. Very smooth all the way down.

O - Very high drinkability. It was great for a warm evening of outside beer drinking during the bike race. It stays true to the Kolsch origins. Very tasty.
