Appearance: Slightly hazy gold with a white head, leaving just a little lace.

Smell: Light wheat and yeast.

Taste: Sweet malts up front, with some bitterness to balance kicking in quickly.

Vaguely fruity, like grapes or apples. Ended on a slightly bitter hop note.

Mouthfeel: Medium thickness with plenty of carbonation.

Overall: It may not be big, but it has plenty of subtler flavors mixed in that go very well together.

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.
