3.78/5 rDev +1.3%
Received a pale yellow brew with a slight foam head. Some splashy lace.
Some of the grape-viney thing going on, but I'm not sure that I'd have noticed it if I wasn't looking for it.
Pale malt, some cracker and bread notes, which lead to a bit a bready sweetness. Hops come up with some firm bitterness. A little mineral note in there as well. Finishes moderately bitter and fairly clean.
Lighter bodied. Good carbonation.
Decent, but a little on the lighter side (even for a Kolsch). The right characteristics prevail and make this one pretty drinkable. Some flaws, but otherwise a very decent, solid brew.

Had on tap at Hingham location
Appearance: minimal head and carbonation, gold in color, clear
Smell: citrus hops, light floral hops
Taste: grapefruit, reisling grapes, and citrus hops--very interesting
Mouthfeel: nice mix of sweet and bitter, light in body, low carbonation
Overall: I really like the kolsch style, so while this rating is not great, I find this beer to be really interesting and enjoyable. I just find this style to be very diverse and having several great examples of the style. Yes there are several better kolsch beers that I have had, but this bring out different and enjoyable elements. If they bottled this one, I would certainly no hesitate to buy a six.

@ Beer Works Salem
Gold with a thin white head. Nice lacey net cast at glass top. Aroma is faint fruit tin. Tastes is smooth, slightly tinny malt and a swampy eurohop in back. Not as crisp or as dry as I'd like.
I just realized today is IPA day and I had a kolsch.

Served in a tall cylindrical tumbler.
It pours the palest golden straw color possible with a snow-white head. Lots of sticky and trailing lacing throughout.
A cut grass smell is upfront, followed by a bit of barn hay and dried malt. A light whiff of citrusy hop mixes in, as does a faint metallic smell.
The malty dextrose taste is noticed first. Lime-like citrus and a touch of a metallic tang poke through.
Dry and crisp at early, it's very balanced as it warms.

Poured a cleary yellow body with a small head that goes away quickly on top of a light, airy, grassy hop aroma. Easy to drink light body that has some light spices and grainy, grassy hop bite w/ a touch of sweetness. Nice balance, and while light in the taste dept. this is a nice beer to enjoy.

Consumed on 4/17 this beer is back.
A: This beer pours a clear yellow golden color with a one finger of white head. Head recedes nicely and leaves wispy lacing on the glass.
S: Nose is of grain, malt, and a hint of citrus bite.
T: Taste starts off nice and sublte, pale malts come through here. Grain, and cereal fill out the middle. In the later part of the middle through the finish is a nice hop bite that really pulls nicely with the grain.
M: Light body, medium carbonation, somewhat creamy on the tongue with a nice dry finish.
D: This is a nicely balanced kolsch, nice representation of the style and could seriously sit with a bunch of these on a hot summer day.

Had this at the Fenway location and was pleasantly surprised. Golden and clear when poured, no head. Aroma was of floral hops meets grain bin. A bit sweet when tasted, but also finishing with some floral hop notes. Medium body, and pretty darn good for an American version. Would get again. pat

Pours a clear gold with a stark white head. I thought the appearance was rather beautiful.
Fruity (plum?) aroma.
Fruit flavors grow in the taste. Plum, a little lemon, peach. A little sour. The malt flavor is all light malts.
Light feel to it, very dry and crisp.
I'm not a Kolsch fan, and I still found this to be a good and easy one to drink.

This stands as one of my hands down favorite beers of all time. It is hard to describe the flavor. Nice nutty flavor that is crisp but also a bit bitter. Nice golden color. Small head that lasts shortly. I could drink this all day. The best Kolsch I have tasted. Great beer!

Bright golden, thin white foam lace. Aroma is clean, slightly fruity -- like opening a tin of mixed-fruits, but faint.
Crispy, creamy and prickly on the palate. Fruity, like a mild unripe peach or nectarine. Malt sweetness and hop bitterness is low. A very dry beer from start and right into the its grainy finish.
A solid Kölsch, very refreshing and drinkable.
