3.9/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a 20 oz. beer mug.

A - One of the best pours I've done yet yields a perfect pillow of head that reaches 1.5 inches or so right to the brim of the glass, a crystal clear, very pale amber brew sitting below it. The head dissipates quick and the color is almost TOO light, but when it first filled the glass, it looked picturesque.

S - Non-offensive light skunk aroma backed up by lots of grain and a hint of hay, grass, and lavender.

T - There's not a whole lot to the taste, but it's got a crisp floral upfront taste with fresh grain to back it up, also carrying a slightly bitter hoppy taste. Just enough bite to lend some zip to the otherwise very light taste.

M - Holds up well with a light yet somewhat substantial body, and fine yet fizzy carbonation. Delicate is the operative word.

D - Let's see:
Modest ABV? Check.
Pleasant yet not overpowering flavor? Check.
Not overpoweringly bitter? Check.
I'd say this is a session brew.

Overall: An excellent summer choice if your craving a tall glass of refreshing brew.

4.2/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Out of a 11.2oz bottle at Mellow Mushroom in Fayetteville, NC. Poured into a rocks glass.
Decent head retention, even in the rocks glass. Poured a very clear yellow. Very crisp mouthfeel, slight sweetness. Low malt flavor. The crispness, hop profile, and even flavor was very suggestive of a Pilsner, dispite this being a Kolsch.
Really good beer. Easy going down. Expensive; Mellow had it at $1.32/oz

3.64/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16.9 oz. bottle poured into craft beer glass

L: pale gold, almost orange; classic German clarity; very few bubbles in the column ... looks almost flat, but it pushed up a mighty big head of white to almost off-white foam, well over 1 1/3-inches tall that stuck hard at the top; keeps a decent collar of foam; almost no lacing on the way down

S: sweet grain ... some malt there, mostly cracker; definitely sweeter here than in the taste -- in fact, if it tasted as good as it smells, we'd have something; sour grain; floral at times

T: grain ... lots of grain, rice, maize; hay; not much malt flavor; doesn't have the sweetness of the nose

F: thin and light; carbonation is there enough to give it some body ... overall not bad

O: easy-drinking and certainly good enough to enjoy, but not overwhelmingly good enough at the price (almost 18 cents per ounce) to justify drinking this much -- for my tastes, there are lots of better German brews available. would be a perfect gateway beer to wean somebody off the macros. for a grainy brew, it's solid.
