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...

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.

Coming from Houston, I am well versed in the Kolsch style ale (Saint Arnold Brewing Co). Jon Boat is quite light--I wasn't sure if it was a Kolsch ale or a pilsner until I read more about it.
There's nothing particularly spectacular about this brew. It's fairly straightforward and what I would expect of a generic Kosch. The beer is mild on all facets. Slight grassy, grainy taste with a mild finish. This beer is very refreshing and appropriate for the hot Florida summers.

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.
