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.

I really like the color of this exceptionally bright colored Kolsch. The color was golden but incredibly Crystal clear with a vastly thin quickly fleeting head. It resembled a white wine in some respects.

The scent was bready, crackery and slightly sweet but very, very light.

The taste was also bready, almost doughy, with a touch of hops at the end.

This had the potential to be a very good hot weather beer but it feels very sharp in the swallow, almost prickly.

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, straw gold coloring with some carbonation action and a thin, filmy, white head. Aromas of honey, toasted grains, floral highlights, and some hops bitterness. Flavors are tangy and toasted grain forward, with a sweet, buttery follow, and a peppery, bitter hops end flavor. Light, frothy body with a solid peppery and bitter aftertaste. Effervesced, frothy finish. Light, refreshing, but there are better representations of the style.

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.

A nice light ale for the summer time. Really enjoyed this for the first time at the Floridian Restaurant in St Augustine. It actually tastes like it was made for drinking while floating on a jon boat on a slow river around here in Northeast Florida. Goes great with seafood and it is a very successful ale for what it is.

A- pours a clear golden-straw color with a fizzy white head that reduces to leave just a bit of head floating on top

S- crisp grainy malt, straw, slightly sweet and earthy with some faint herbal hop

T- sweet wheaty malt and a but yeasty, the finish is crisp and bone dry with a hint of grass/citrus linger

M- light and thin body with medium carbonation, slightly fizzy mouthfeel with a slick finish

O- not a bad choice for a hot summer day, very light on the palate and mouthfeel. It serves its purpose, but isn't a choice if you're looking for a boat load of flavor.
