341ml single bottle, apparently part of the latest Showcase mixed-pack. What is the beer equivalent of a 78 RPM record? This, according to the brewer.

This beer pours a cloudy pale yellowish straw colour, with two fingers of puffy, foamy white head, which leaves some broad swaths of randomly webbed lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of bready, biscuity, and yeasty pastry dough, a bit of citrus cream, and nice leafy, earthy, weedy hops. The taste is more semi-sweet bready, doughy malt, a touch of white wine must, mildly acrid lemon, and soft citrusy, leafy hops.

The bubbles are a bit fresh and peppy, with a slight persistent edge, the body a weak medium weight, and a tad watery in its smoothness. It finishes rather off-dry, the sweetness of the malt still firmly planted in the bakery realm, a bit of yeast loitering about, and some pleasantly subtle fruitiness - tart and bitter - rounding things off.

A pretty enjoyable Kolsch, brightly flavoured, and quite easy to put back. Staring at the snowbanks outside right now, I can't help but imagine a nice warm spring or summer patio as this one quickly slips away. (1,146 characters)

Yellow like apple juice, with just a skim of bubbles on top. Crisp. Mildly bitter. (82 characters)

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. (401 characters)

On-tap at Craft Beer Market.
Pale yellow color, shiny white head, decent retention and some thin string lacing.
Not much aroma, light grains.
Light and fresh taste, sweetish malt, as a kolsch should be.
Body is thin, but average for style.
Pretty clean taste. (260 characters)
