3.95/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Straw-hued body, lightly hazed, lively carbonated, with a near-white head.

Smell: A light grainy scent and impression of sans crust white bread trailed by touches of dried herb and lemon.

Taste: Bright, lightly malted barley, a faint graininess, and low powdered sugar sweetness. Fresh lemon accent, faint herb tone. Has a satisfactory bitterness. The ample carbonation aids in drying the beer out on the back half and giving a final, little bite to it.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just a hair over medium carbonation.

Overall: A delightfully refreshing, low-ABV option in Georgia.

On tap.
While none of the individual ratings of this beer are high, it is well crafted and good for style. Refreshing and with more flavor than many other kolsch.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is very faint hops. The taste is more like a lager than a kolsch.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: cloudy, light golden/straw color, with a frothy white head that retains half a finger's width. Very light lacing down the glass.
Some carbonation runs up the glass.

Aroma: 70% pear, 30% white bread from the barley malt.

Taste: initially carbonated water, then a flowering of pear and slight sweetness, accompanied by a hop bitterness than builds and builds into the middle of the sip, and then dies out with the culmination of a mouthful of white bread from the barley malt, which also builds alongside the hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: light to medium: slight fluffy mouthfeel of an ale, but also somewhat watery like a lager; and carbonation.

Finish: crisp, refreshing, and mostly dry.

pours slightly less than clear pale straw yellow with a pure white head.

Aroma: gassy, grainy and a lemon peel scent.

Lively carbonation, dry up front and throughout, including a bitter bite at finish.

Quick Notes

A - Light straw appearance, great carbonation, solid lacing.
