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.

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.

No head to speak of on a deep copper and golden clear body. Some lacing. Aroma is musty with pale malts and sweet corn mosty. Flavor has more sweet corn, more of a sweet caramel malt than pale malt. A syrupy and orange citrus finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation and very clean. Overall drinkable but not a stellar beer however has its place.

Jon Boat from Intuition Ale Works 4.5% alcohol... poured into a pint glass.

A- Yellow straw colored fluid with mild carbonated head that drops to a light froth.

S- Sweet corn and dextrin upfront with a light scent of floral hops and tangy yeast.

T-M- Lemon like hops upfront with the rundown of tight bitter floral bite. Average mill of ale malts sweeten this beer to a so so taste. Mild yeast/ dextrin flavor on the afterbite. Watery and lightly astringent finish makes this the hit or miss... mostly a miss.

Good but no cigar for drinkablity...
