Pours a clear orange amber with a lovely but short lived pure white head.

Nose is negligible and that is even at room temperature! A few swirls releases soe esters that are pleasant but the nose is closed.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy with light carbonation and very nice balance.

Flavors are light yeasty white bread, hints of celery and green herbs but fresh, clean and inviting. There are hints of wheat and white pepper and an all around pleasant drink that has a wonderful flavor profile for food.

Finish is clean, dry and lightly salty. Very light pleasant bitter character. This is a wonderfully balanced and drinkable beer. (639 characters)

22oz bottle into SN tulip shaped pint glass.

A: Pours a glowing clear golden with a couple fingers of bright white head. Head took some time fading into a dense film leaving a few wisps of lace down the glass.
S: Crisp notes of pale malts, dry grains, and cracked wheat. Yeast comes through as well giving the beer a dry and refreshing odor.
T: Light notes of pale malt, lightly toasted grains, straw, and lager yeast. I get a hint of citrus and earthy hops near the finish with light notes of lemon juice and cracked pepper. The aftertaste is slightly sweet and chalky with maybe a note or two of stone fruits and honey.
M: Very soft carbonation and an extremely smooth mouthfeel. The body is light but not watery, and the drinkability is off the charts. This is one smooth and refreshing beer.
O: Definitely an underrated style. I’m glad this new brewery made it, and made it well. A wonderfully easy going brew. Cheers! (929 characters)

Highly drinkable, crisp and clean brew. Golden color in the Duvel glass with a moderate foam. Plenty sudsy in the mouth.

Nice biscuity flavor with a perfumey hop aroma. Light and fragrant. Just enough bitterness to give it a zing. Pleasant malty flavors. Bitter aftertaste with warm tanginess. Hard to describe well, but it seems to be the essence of Kölsch.

One of the better Kölsch brews I've had. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Beer Revolution in Oakland. (463 characters)
