Got this guy as an extra in a trade, thanks Brad!
A: Pours a very clear straw yellow with a nice fluffy white head and some nice sheets of lace on the way down.
S: Some nice grassy notes with an almost tart, sour grape note mixing in there. Hints of a light cracker malt.
T: Some light corned barley with a light bitter hop kick. Not as sour or tart as the nose which I like. The tartness does show itself slightly on the backend.
M: Very crisp and clean, light bodied. Nice bubbly carbonation with a great drinkability. A light tart grape is left on the tongue.
O: This is a very drinkable beer and my first real kolsch. I enjoyed the style for what it is, but I wouldn't go out of my way to enjoy one on a regular basis. Unless its 100 degrees like it is now, then it tastes great.

Poured into a glass at home.
Pours a clear, bright yellow. Big rocky head that takes its time falling back into the glass.
Aroma is slightly sweet up front, followed by a bread crust smell, and ending with a faint floral hop note. It's all very clean, and nothing jumps out at you. The only issue I have is that it's really rather subdued. Not bad, just quiet and shy.
Flavor mimics the smell pretty well. Sweet and bready, with a nice doughy flavor, almost like being in a kitchen while bread is baking. Right behind that comes the floral hops again, more as flavor than bitterness. This isn't an exceptionally bitter brew by any means. It has a creaminess in the end that seems a bit out of place, but isn't disturbing or off-putting. It all ties together nicely by the time you've swallowed the sip, and the cleanliness of the taste makes you want to take another right away. Nothing out of balance, nothing challenging, just a good kolsch type flavor.
Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with the exception of that odd creamy consistency that creeps in mid-drink. Otherwise, just about right for following up a day of yard work.
This is nicely crafted. Clean, crisp, doesn't try to be bigger or bolder than it should be. It's an easy drinking beer for those who actually *like* beer. If I were in southeastern Texas, immediately after cursing life for putting me there, I'd grab some of this. Good stuff.
