3.96/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Light straw color with some gold hues. White fluffy head with moderate retention.

An interest mix of aromas. Some light fruity notes mixed with gentle citrus and then deep base notes of wet mineral and sulphur. Pushing up from underneath are notes of cat pee and flint. While it might be an odd combination, it certainly wasn't boring.

A gentle bitterness is balanced nicely with the malt. While the front end shows more of the mineral, while the finish brings back the fruitiness that lingers for a bit. A light hoppyness holds it all together.

Mildly creamy on the palate with just a touch of wateriness at the edges.

A very interesting beer that has you putting your nose in the glass several times. Things were evolving, showing new facets, and developing all the way to the bottom of the glass.

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.
