Poured from bottle into Duvel glass.

Pale golden/yellow, with fairly small / quickly-fading head.

Smell is clean and light, with faint malty and hoppy notes. More "German" than many other American kolsches.

Taste is just a little more on the malty side, or at least not as dry as I like my Kolsches. However, it's still refreshing and would be very pleasant on a summer afternoon.

This beer, as the label in the picture shows, is Cali Colsch, not Cali Coast (although maybe it was called that once, neither the picture shown here nor the bottle I had said that). Anyway, it is a very good kolsch.

Dark gold, it has a big white head steadily shrinking to small lasting head.

Aroma is nice apple, pear, bread, hints of hay and honey.

Taste is very nice, full grain, bread, hay, hints of pepper and grass, firm light sweetness and a firm light bitterness joining in the finish. It has lingering hay, bread, grassy bitterness with hints of mineral and pear. Feel is zesty and engaging.

First beer from these folks. This pours a tan golden with a touch of foaming. There’s a light aroma with a pleasing touch of toasted bread. It’s tasty with a more pronounced touch of biscuit on the finish complementing a citrusy squeeze of lemon. Nice one.
