A - Very light, clear straw. Not much head. Very little lace.

S - Fresh nice straw comes out first. Some bitter present.

T - Like smell, but flavors more complex within the boundaries. Pretty tasty.

M - Light body, good bold malt up front, bittered nicely, balance good.

D - Light beer, good flavors and very sessionable.

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass.
Light very clear batch from the filtration dept. Straw light tone, fluffy head. medium carbonation.
Smells of biscuit, grains, grass, some floral notes, rice hulls, citrus.
Floavor is pretty much the same.
Lighter mouthfeel, light finish.
Crisp as any Kolsch should be

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.

3.95/5  rDev +11.6%

Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Modern Times pint glass
From: My cousin, who got it from BevMo! in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Price: N/A
Purchased: April 20, 2014
Consumed: April 25, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a yellow, golden, mostly clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of white head. Slowly moving bubbles coming up from the bottom. Just a few spots of lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average-to-minimal retention.

Thought pilsner with the initial smell, not a Kölsch like Beer Advocate had it at. Smelled biscuit, bread, corn, hay, honey, cereal, Corn Pops, crackers and some spices.

Tasted pretty close to what I thought it would have after taking a whiff, but not quite as good. Very dry on the tongue. Got corn, bread, biscuit, hay, cereal, German spices, honey, grass and slight apple.

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish.

A very tasty brew. I would have another once for sure.
