On-tap at Mellow Mushroom, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of bready malts along with slight hints of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has some refreshing properties. It makes for a good beer to drink outside on a hot summer day.

Aroma is quite grainy and wheaty. Pretty light stuff. Figured on a bit more.

Taste follows pretty closely. It's fairly honey sweet, full of grain and wheat, and a very small bitterness at the backend. This is a pretty straightforward beer here. A bit surprised at the lack of citrus character. Nothing complicated, but it goes down quite easily. Would probably make a great summer beer.

Pours a light fuzzy banana color, light head.

At first not much on the nose, just a touch of light tart wheaty malt and maybe some banana. Gets sweeter as it warms, touch of honey.

Taste is pretty similar--tart wheatiness again, light honey sweetness, hint if banana and yeast.

Nothing special but a decent kolsch.

6.2/10
