A: Pours a crystal clear pale straw yellow with light amounts of visible carbonation. There is a finger tall white foamy head which dissipates quickly leaving about a quarter of a finger tall layer of bubbles (not as thick as the original head). Light lacing is observed.

S: Aromas of sweet & pale malts with some grassy hints. More complex than I expected. Also some faint hints of apple and pear.

T: Very refreshing, well balanced with subtle complexity. Flavors are sweet and pale malts up front followed by some apple and pear and finishes with grassy hints.

M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very good example of the style and a very enjoyable, very sessionable beer. Brings back memories of visits to the northern parts of Germany on a warm fall afternoon.

Poured into a pils glass.

3.5 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is good, but not much in the lacing department.

4.5 S: Sweet and grassy, but the sweetness has surprising depth. Indeed, this is surprisingly complex while being simple. It's hard to explain so I'll just say that this smells great.

4.5 T: Taste is much like the nose. Super clean with a grassy sweetness that is powerful, yet elegant.

3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Carbonation is a tad low for the style, but still reasonable. Could use a bit more creaminess though.

4.0 D: This is probably the best tasting kolsch I've ever had. This truly is a great style that seemingly always gets overlooked.

11.2 oz bottle that pours out clear straw yellow fizzing carbonation from the bottom. White thin head leaves minimal lacing on the glass. Smells like sweet light fruits and bready malt backbone. I didnt get any hops from the nose but on the palate it makes its appearance as the end with a touch of bitterness. Sweet, light, balanced & my first Kolsch - I'll be back for more.

Pours a golden straw color with excellent clarity and a tall pillowy white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles visible. Decent head retention and lacing.

A nice aroma of honey, lemon and green apple. Wine-like grape notes with pale malts and a subtle hop accent.

Quite complex for a lighter beer. Bready, sweet malt with some fruitiness. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with high carbonation...a bit grainy with a dry pils-like finish that sticks to the palette.

One of the best Kolschs I've tasted. Highly sessionable.
