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.

If you are a fan of traditional Kolsch style beers, this is an amazing representation of the style. An amazing beer for these beautiful San Diego Summer Days!! Smell, taste and overall apperance of the beer was spot on!! Way to go Saint Archer!! Can't wait to try your other styles!!!

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.
