Golden yellow in color with an amber hue and a slight chill haze. Poured with a brief white foam that quickly dissipated. Wonderful, bready malt aromas with a hint of herbal hops. Medium bodied with a slick oily feel engulfed in crisp tangy carbonation. Bready malt flavors up front and into the middle. Tangy herbal hops arrive at the middle to the end. Clean, crisp, dry finish. Very simple, crisp, refreshing, enjoyable.

3.19/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours pale gold. Slightly yellow. I had to labor to even get a foam ring to clump up.

Muddled wheat malts with some strange syrupy vibe. Fruit notes are more reminiscent of orange, then lemon; but I get them both in the nose, very mildly. A little too sweet-smelling with an out-of-place note of treacle.

Like a hybrid between a pale wheat ale and a kolsch. Only the hops are characteristically German. A lot of the mustiness comes from them. Semi-grassy with a stocky wheat flavor that holds back some of that aromatic malt sweetness, but still lingers with notes of clover honey and something lightly medicinal. Hops are tea-like and mildly spicy. Less than average bitterness, for the style. Lemony twang gets lost in waves of pale wheat and hints of menthol.

Very slick in the mouth with an evident oiliness. Carbonation is a little burpy, but it never gets close to 'aggressive'.

An unimpressive kolsch. Not one to stop and grab again. Typical American craft mutilation of German styles, but a decent drink, by all generic standards.
