12 oz bottle Mom brought back from brewery.

Appearance: Very clear and bright medium yellow. Wispy white head with little retention. Spots of lacing.

Smell: I initially thought this would be some manner of pale ale, but the first sniff told me it was a Kolsch. Pale bready malt aroma, bit of light fruit, noble hops, and a kiss of sulfur.

Taste: Very much in line with the aroma. Malt sweetness wins out a bit over hops bitterness and dryness, leaving it a bit on the sweet side. Not as crisp in the finish as I'd like, but generally tasty.

Mouthfeel: A bit to sweet on the finish makes it not as crisp and clean as I'd like.

Overall: A solid Kolsh that would be a good lawnmower beer.

Served on tap at Opal Divine's Marina in Austin, TX

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall dense white head that slowly reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready malts along with some fruity yeast and light amounts of grassy hops.

T: Light to moderate amounts of malty sweetness upfront with some bready malts as well. There are some notes of fruity yeast and just a touch of lemon citrus. The finish has a moderate amount of grassy hops and a light amount of bitterness which does not linger.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Easy to drink as the mouthfeel is light and the flavors refreshing and thirst quenching - definitely sessionable. This would be a great beer for drinking on a hot Austin summer day, especially if you were outside doing yard work. I enjoyed this one.

Quite a yellow color in the glass. Plenty sudsy on the tongue, and has that tangy quality. Less foam than you might hope for.

Really not bad an does taste like something in the Kölsch family. Light bodied without a lot of malt in the mouth, though it does have malty flavors as you sip. Quite a pleasant perfumey flavor with aromas to match. Aftertaste hints of lemon and resins. Crisp and tangy without being too sharp. Gets better as you sip and the delicate aromatic hops begin to emerge. Quite a decent yard work quaff when you don't want an overdose of hops.

From the 12 oz bottle bought in Abilene at H and H Beverage.

12oz bottle

Appearance is a slightly hazy, golden yellow with a small and quickly receding head. Smell is a light sweetness with some lager yeast fruitiness coming out, fairly solid malt at the end Taste is mild, small spicy and bitter hops with a laid back light malt and 'fresh cut grass' Kölsch notes. Sweet and light enough that one thinks of the corn/rice in a macro, too sweet for the style TBH. Light body, carbonation is a bit high.

Not a bad beer, tastes like a hybrid of an American macro and a Kölsch. What I wish American macros tasted like, very good beer but not the best in the style by a long shot.
