Surprisingly good Kolsch from a brewery I hadn't tried. Light citrus and slightly heavier than the standard for the style, but this is definitely one I'd drink again. Refreshing, easy drinker with a little more fruit flavor and a little less of the floral characteristics I would expect from a world-class kolsch.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint straw yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy foamy bright white head that reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of cracker and bready malts with lighter aromas of spicy, grassy, and herbal hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of cracker and bready malts with just a hint of honey-like sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of spicy, grassy, and herbal hops in descending order of strength which impart a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Very clean, easy to drink, and refreshing. Enjoyed this one and it was very nice on a warm summer evening. Nice American example of the style.

@ Tyler's (Raleigh)

Brilliant yellow covered with a patchy white head. Light, melon-like fruits, noble hops, straw, and cracker malt in the nose. Quite clean yeast-wise. Hoppy spice and a fine sweetness leading to a soft, pale fruitiness and a touch of citrus peel. Very crisp and refreshing - almost pilsener-like overall, with fairly high, snappy carbonation. This made for a good lunchtime beer. Easy going and pulls off the style well.
