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

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.

Pours a deep gold color with a tall white head. A shade darker than most others I've had before. Great clarity once I wiped away the chill haze on the glass.

Subtle aroma of light fruits (apple and pear) with an almost white wine quality to it. Some grainy malt as well.

The flavor is well-balanced. Neither the malt nor the hops really jump out at you. A touch of malt sweetness in the beginning that fades pretty quickly and gives way to some light sulfur.

Medium bodied and clean. Slight metallic finish, but nothing that affects its drinkability.

Overall, not as refreshing as I had hoped, but still a subtle, easy-drinking brew. Cheers!

from a bottle to a beer tulip
look; very golden, lots of carbonation, a little haze, 1/4" white head that leaves a covering, a little lacing
smell; cracker, honey, lemon/apple, nice, very mild
taste; mild hops, clean malt, hint of green apple, hint of yeast ant slightly dry, bitter finish
feel; crisp, clean, light, a little dry for a kolsch
overall; very refreshing, balanced, but could use just a little more of that malt. I would get this again for an all day summer affair

2/4...pours bright gold with fluffy pillowy white foam. Fruity straw bready nose. Lemon citrus too. Light fizzy ale taste. Honey and citrus. Crisp. Tasty and clean, easy drinker.

Picked this up mixed and matched for $1.85. Into a pint glass.
A - Big head on this one 2+ inches that take a while to settle with good lacing. Color is a mildly hazy orange yellow.
S - Mild fruit, some orange peel, mildly bready. It smells good.
T - Sweet malts, mild hop presence, a touch of orange peel. It's good.
M - Light to medium bodied easy to drink.

Overall it's a good Kolsch but not great. A decent take on the style.
