7 /12 - Back again. This time the dry crispness makes this a great summer quaff. I since learned that Kolsch style brews are meant to be served in smaller than usual sizes. Be sure to guzzle the first half as the colder the better, but it won't fail to impress.

05/15/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Nice & Clean with a full body. Good taste.

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

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.
