Hey look, a Kolsch! Not the easier beer style to locate around here but a few import examples are showing up and this is probably the easiest domestic example to find, either alone or in a mixed pack. Pours a striking mustard yellow with a decent amount of white head. Flavor is fresh bakery yeast and vibrant pale malts that almost recall popcorn, along with grassy hop notes. Palate is crisp and refreshing, with pils malt and strong cracker, a touch toasty, sweetgrass, hay, hints of creamy lemon, apple, vanilla, and ginger, with a lingering sweetness (lacks the crisp bitter finish of a good pilsner). Carbonation is a little aggressive but I guess that's part of the point. Some dextrin chew apparent. Surprisingly layered and interesting with a predominance of sweet grains, yet drinkable in quantity.

3.26/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a nice yellow – quite pale, but still has some richness to it. Medium head of loose white foam.

Smell: Sweet grains.

Taste: More sweet grains, as well as mild maltiness, and a mid-low hoppy bitterness. A smooth, mild, and even sort of flavour.

Mouthfeel: Active carbonation, a lively brew in that regard.

Overall: I've never had a Kölsch, so I'm not sure how this stacks up as a representative of the style, but it is a rather nice beer. Very fresh, easy drinking, and laid back.

2.81/5  rDev -19.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color Kolsch with a medium size white head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light cereal notes is simple. Taste is also dominated by light cereal notes with a bland aftertaste. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. I could not have known this was a Kolsch had it not been specified on the label, I thought this was more akin a golden ale.
