This is a nice beer. Tastes kind of bready and floral with some dough in there. Not really characteristics I would expect to see in a kolsch, but it's a nice drinker.

Not particularly impressive. Tastes and smells like a pilsner... Not sure even what a "Kolsch-style Ale" even is, but if this is a good example of one I have no choice but to assume that Kolsch-style Ales are really just Pilsners with another name.

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has some hints of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of bready malts and green grapes are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but the green grape flavors seem to be a bit stronger and linger into the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This kölsch doesn't seem to be as flavorful as some of the other beers in the style, but is refreshing and easy to drink.

12 ounce can, canned on 11/03/2014 (date stamped on bottom of can). Served in a stange/Kölsch glass, the beer pours a gold color with about an inch white head that stuck around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. The aroma is nice, the brew smells like bready malt, grassy hops and some lemon/orange peel. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some honey and light floral hops. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's crisp and it's also easy and refreshing to drink. I'd probably enjoy this more on a hot day, but it was in the 50's here today (which is nice for mid-December) so that's close enough for me. So far I'm 3 for 3 with MadTree brews that I'd like to try again. $1.67 a can at Grain and Grape.
