Pours a very light yellow with a foamy head. Smell isn't great. Smells like a Pilsner for sure. Taste is very light with a hint of lime. Nothing overpowering here. Feel like I should have cut the grass before drinking this. Ok. Won't seek it out again.

Wife's Review: "I like it. It is refreshing and the lime flavor is just right."

22oz. bottle.
Very hazy amber; Decent off-white head

Wonderful smell mixes lime with fresh baked bread.

The flavor is much less balanced, with the lime components dominating. Good sweet/bitter/sour balance, with all three present at near equal levels.

Refreshing. Light body with appropriate medium carbonation.

Clear golden, smells strongly of lemongrass and lime leaves. Taste is crisp, grassy, with lemongrass and lime leaves again very obvious and almost overpowering. I had this with curry prawns, and it was a very good complement, however I would suggest maybe using either lemongrass or Kaffir lime leaves since they are very similar in taste and smell and combining the two doubles the effect. In contrast, the lime zest almost did not come through. Overall, this is a very unusual and enjoyably refreshing summer beer and is especially good with spicy foods.

Aromas of creamy lemon,lime zest and honey malts nice enough MMmm very refreshing first beer of the week and its zesty,salty,honey and crisp,dry pilsner finish nice stuff!! Good palate it is not too thin yet goes down a treat. Very nice refreshing summer beer. I was unsure so held off all summer but this is nice.

Served from the bottle into a pilsner glass

A- Poured a clear pale golden color with tons of streaming carbonation, soapy bright white head that left some spotty lace.

S- Very light aroma of lime and grassy notes.

T- Slightly acidic lime flavor and mint is most prominent, some grassy and fruity notes. Not much in the way of traditional Kolsch flavors, the Kolsch seems to serve as a blank template for the lime and herb additions.

M- Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, and pretty watery.

O- Not much complexity and definitely a lighter beer. It drinks like a really easy and nice craft alternative to Corona.

Poured from a 650ml bottle. Pours a slightly orangish yellow colour. A unique nose with herbaceous scents of funk, grass and citrus. Definitely reflects the ingredients list. Taste is similar with a big hit of tart lime. Spicy notes show up on the pleasantly dry finish. Any kolsch characteristics are pretty much obliterated by the lime and herb notes, but that's probably the point. This is fruity, light and refreshing.
