The label reads that it has a soft malt character and a low hop profile and it's spot on. The label is certainly evidenced by the aroma as it has an near indecipherable maltiness. The flavor has a nice bran, grain and malt flavor that lends to an exceptionally crisp, dry and satisfying experience. It is what it is...a Kolsch.

09/26/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. More hops than I expected for what was billed as a Kolsch. Gives it a fuller texture. My preferences is for crispness so this is not top o' the list. If hops is your thing give it a go.

12oz bottle, date stamp A164 10:00. Served in a 20cl Bitburger Pils Rastel pokal glass.

Appearance: Hazy gold-straw color. Thin white skin across the top with a solid ring of foam. Strands of persistent lacing noted.

Smell: Light aroma. A bit floral with a hint of honey to it. Maybe just a hint of white grapes.

Taste: Crisp malt with some definite tastes of honey, very much a sweet beer. Noble hops completely missing from this. There is a light bitterness at the end, but it’s muted. There is a hint at noble hops and German-style bitterness as the beer warms up, but even then it’s just a hint.

Mouthfeel: Dry at first, with some lingering stickiness on the teeth. Good carbonation – not fizzy.

Overall / Drinkability: Overall, it’s an okay beer. Nothing amazing, but it’s not a Kölsch. I know it even says on the label that it is in the style of this beer, but no, it’s not. Maybe an American Blond Ale or even a Lager, but it is not a Kölsch. Easily drinkable, but I would want something different for my second glass.
