3.95/5  rDev +6.2%
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 kolsch.

5/5  rDev +34.4%
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 an opaque pale gold producing almost 2 fingers of white, frothy, somewhat lasting head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is cracker malt, fruitiness especially banana, yeast & a grassy, lemon & herbal hop profile. Taste is pale malt, biscuit, banana bread, lemon, grass & earthy herbal. Finishes lemony & bready with light pepper but clean leaving a lemon, herbal & faint mineral aftertaste. The banana I pick up in both the nose & mouth seem strange for the style but I can't deny my senses, it is definitely banana like. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with high carbonation, creamy, with a nice prickle.

Strong, malty, hoppy, aroma is somewhat sour and a touch fruity. Pours a hazy dark amber with a nice buff head. Malty, woody flavor has a bitter hoppy undertone. Firm, lively mouthfeel leaves behind a woody finish. This one won’t leave you up the creek!
