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.

Very crisp beer, nice carbonation, very low hop presence with a sweet aftertaste. Nice brew for the summer.

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.

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.
