Served on tap in a 16 oz conical pint glass at the Intuition Brew Pub in Jacksonville, FL (November 18, 2011). Cheers to Brent for suggesting the place.

Eyes: Pours a pale golden straw color with good clarity. The near white head is moderate, as is the lacing, which are both typical for the style.

Nose: A weak albeit clean aroma, light bread with a touch of grass. Some mild fruit also (apple?).

Tongue: Another area that's a bit mild, but very good. Not particularly crisp for the style, but the malty & wheat character combine with the aforementioned fruit. Some apple and pear evident.

Mouth: An appropriately carbonated profile with a crisp, dry finish. Light-bodied.

Libation: I asked the bartender, but she wasn't aware of the ABV, but I'll guess it's somewhere around 5 and 6 percent, as it wasn't boozy at all. Although this is quite mild, it's exactly that feature which makes this such a quality brew. Very light and drinkable, but not compromising on taste.

I was surprised by this one. I had it straight out of a can and even then it was very fragrant - straight up biscuit. I actually got it poured into a pint glass the next time and I swear it was not as fragrant that way. Weird. But now I go straight out of the can every time.

It was really enjoyable and had a nice tang to it. It has a sort of sour biscuit dough thing going on. It makes you want to keep taking another sip and another. I end up finishing them really quickly.

It's not going to beat out some complex stout but as a session beer it's a real winner. I could drink a dozen of these. I didn't think it was as insubstantial as some here have said. I didn't expect to think much of it but did. Really nice flavor. This has become the go-to session beer for my friends and me. Makes me want to try other kolsches.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium gold hue with a moderate haze and a metric ton of effervescence. Head poured a finger of frothy ivory foam but is subsiding pretty quickly. Not too bad!

Smell: malty with a light, dusty yeastiness which I like. The only problem here is that it's a bit too sweet.

Taste: very much like the aroma, although there's also a light noble hop character and bitterness toward the end. Actually, I'm finding now that the bitterness grows on the palate with each sip. It's a bit drier than the aroma, but still there's something about the flavor that lacks balance. Certainly not bad, but not outstanding.

Mouthfeel: light body with a creaminess which is big at first but ultimately evanescent. Not too bad.

Overall: this is a decent Kölsch, and admittedly quite welcome during this heat wave we're having. However, it lacks the kind of balance which would promote its drinkability and overall desirability.

Serving type: can

Intuition Jon Boat from a can poured into a pilsner type glass at 3 Forks in Jacksonville. The beer is a chill hazed gold with a sticky off-white head.

It has an aroma of fruit and grains.

Taste leads with grains and some light floral notes. There is a touch of fruit and some hops (magnums) add a touch of almost metallic bitterness.

The mouth is crisp and on the lighter side which would make this one easy to session.

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

A- Pale and clear. Pretty light.
S- Nothing special but that is to be expected for this style.
T- For a light ale it as a better than average taste. Much better than the macros but not as tasty as a pale ale. Light hops throughout.
M- More carbed than most micros but refreshing as was the goal here.

It's a beer for those who are looking for a light but want a micro beer.
