Pour is light gold straw with solid 1/4 inch head and lasting evanescence with the bubbles.

Smell is light pitted fruit and grassy

Taste is ever so slight apricot and grassy

Mouthful is soft on palette and smooth

Overall an outstanding summer beer in Houston Texas by an outstanding brewer in Houston texas

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

a very clean light gold in color with 2 fingers of fluffy white head revealing a nice amount of sticky lacing.. this is a wonderful looking beer with lots of vibrant carbonation bubbles shooting up the middle of the glass like there's a party going on in there!

the smell is of pilsner style malt base, lemongrass, wheat, slight citrusy lemon-like scent. as for the flavor, it's the same.. very basic, with a hint of bittering hops.. citrusy and very bready.

this is a very refreshing kolsch, basic and straight to the point - a summer beer. high carbonation, light in body, and extremely refreshing on a hot summer day.

for the style, it's one of the best i've had.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This one pours a pale golden color that is a tinge opaque and has a thin short lived head with virtually no lacing down the glass.

The nose is peppery and sharp with a moderate hop nose and a subtle yet dominant malt sweetness that everything else floats on.

The taste is a classic kolsch with a dryer maltiness than the nose that has peppery and bitter hops.

The moutfeel is a tab nit watery for this style but still acceptable and unremarkable.

Overall a drinkable beer but not my favorite. Karbach has many more to choose from that are better.

On tap at Cottonwood in Houston.

A: Pours a clear golden/orange color. A two finger pillowing white head forms with good retention. Nice lace is left behind as well.
S: Phenolic yeast, bread and biscuit like malts. Just a bit of dry, peppery spice and bitterness in the finish.
T: Follows the nose. Yeast, bread and biscuit. Just a touch of hops. I am thinking Saaz hops. Very clean with spicy, grassy flavors.
M/D: A light to medium body. Very crisp, dry and clean. There is not much to this, and that is the point. Very easy to drink, without thinking about it.

I do like this. Pretty much exactly what the style calls for. So, I can't really take off any points. Just well made for the style, and I will be coming back often in the Texas heat.
