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.

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.

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.

Smooth taste, very easy to drink. Nothing special but nothing negative.
