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.
