look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance-Golden to straw with a light cream foam out of the bottle.

Smell-Straw and yeast.

Taste-Follows the nose.

Mouthfeel-Light body with a medium finish.

Overall-Finish could be longer. I always wanted more than what I got out of both the nose and flavors. Overall just not a very complex beer.

Clean crisp and dry kolsch, nicely done for an American brewery. Finishes a touch more astringent than some of the finer German kolsch, but quite drinkable.

Terrific, subtle flavor profile. Very drinkable and refreshing. Glad I tried this!

a: hazy amber color with some lighter yellow notes along the side of the glass. real nice looking 2-3 finger frothy white head

s: strong grains, pears, sweet citrus. faint pepper and coriander. ends with some sweet malt

t: this follows the nose pretty well. its got a crisp graininess followed by a slight earthy/noble bitterness that is VERY slight. that helps to cut the sweetness that comes from the malts, grains, and some sweet lemon zest. just a hint of coriander on the end.

m: its a medium mouthfeel with enough carbonation to help the sweet grains pop

o: for the style, its solid. its a simpler style, but as i'm drinking it the sun is out and i'm enjoying sipping on it. if you're looking for some mind blowing beer, this isn't it. this is an easy drinking beer that has enough flavor to leave you enjoying each sip

This was given to me as a gift. Perfect, considering I'd finished a six pack of Firestone's 805 blonde ale.

I lean toward amber lagers, but this was not at all a disappointment. Crisp to the point of biting, fragrant to the point of perfume. Rich for a blonde ale. Sweet but hoppy, edgy but smooth.

Overall I enjoyed this beer. Not sure I'd drink it on a regular basis, but if it were on tap at my favorite pub, I'd give it a go again.
