From the 16 ounce bottle into a stein. I poured it vigorously and it produced a light, foamy, pale white head. A pale straw colored body shows and has some light carbonation through the hazy liquid. The head persists well and leaves some lace behind.

Biscuity and cracker-like, with hints of sweet pale malt. The hops give it a floral quality. It's simple but enticing.

I get a lemony flavor here, then some subtle, cracker-like malt flavors. The hops are only slightly detectable, imparting a touch of floweriness.

As it should be, this beer is very light and drinkable. It keeps enough malt to thicken the body and keep it from soda or champagne territory, but it still drinks smoothly. The finish is dry and bready with only a slight bitterness.

This is enjoyable. I imagine it would be even tastier on tap and super fresh.

Pours a light golden color with a decent head in the tall goblet. Clusters of bubbles clinging to the glass. Plenty of spritz on the tongue. Some pleasant resiny aroma with a whiff of citrus.

Light flowery hop flavors. Somewhat acidic and on the verge of being tart, but in a lemony rather than sour way. Very light body with the ongoing fizzy mouthfeel.

A quite drinkable and clean-tasting Kölsch. Light aromatics with a citrus note and an unobtrusive bitterness at the finish. From the 500 ml bottle purchased for four bucks at Grapevine Liquor in Denver.

hands down the best kolsch i have ever had, bar none. its simple summer beer really, but its put together in a way that not a single other example of the style can match. pale blonde beer, brightly carbonated, with a distinct grassy and slightly limey hop profile. the label seems to indicate a single hop of tettnanger, which i never knew could be so dynamic, especially on its own. pils and white wheat malts make up the base, which is light and clean, minimally cereal grainy, but still earthy and floral, its really fun beer. a four pack of pint bottles is nice, but a sixer of these would be the ideal dose. just so bright and easy drinking, perfectly refreshing when ice cold, and quite affordable for the quality. kolsch isnt a style of beer that has ever turned my head or inspired me much, but for an all day drinker, i can think of no better beer in the colorado market. i love the subtle but distinct hop profile on the finish, and the way the little bubbles prickle it into my palate. infinitely sessionable, 8 second is yet another example of brewing mastery from the good people of elevation. i cant get enough of this.
