Poured into a pint glass. Pours the color of pale straw with a tall, quickly dissipating white head. Plenty of tiny bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. There's also the appearance of some sediment. Some lacing is left behind on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. The aroma is of malt and yeast. It's a very basic sweet, bready smell. That sweet breadiness from the yeast and the malt hits the mouth up front. There are some minor hop notes, but these are not strong. The body is light with moderate carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry. The drinkability is high, especially on a hot summer day. This is a very good beer that is perfect for summer consumption.

A. Clear pale yellow with plenty of rising bubbles and a white head. Not too much retention.

S. The glass needs to be swirled around pretty vigorously to get much of an aroma but what comes up is sweeter than I was expecting. A mix of honey, malts and bubblegum.

T. Not quite as sweet in the taste, but sweeter than I prefer. Some nice noble hop notes. Almost a pilsner-like grassiness that's very pleasant.

M. Very light and crisp but the sweetness takes away from it.

O. I'm not familiar enough with Kolsch to rate it to style but I don't think I'd go for this again. A good German or Czech style pilsner is what I go for on a hot day, and there are plenty of hot days in south central Texas. This beer is just a little too cloying to cut through the heat for me.

Beer brought back all the way from Houston by my buddy Andrew. Thanks to him for hooking me up. I'm sorry two of them broke inside your case!

Bottle poured into a standard nonic.

A: Pours a very light golden/yellow color, a bit hazy, with a thin bone-white head on top. Maybe half a finger's worth, but it hung around fairly well.

S: Mild notes of sweet barley and bready yeast.

T: Bready yeast notes up front, malt sweetness arriving near the middle, and a nice touch of hop *brightness* on the back end to round things out. For a mild, light beer, this one holds it's own.

M: Light, carbonation bubbles are very *fine*. Would appreciate just a touch more, personally. Remarkable stickiness on the finish for such a light beer.

D/O: Not bad for a light beer. I see what the *fuss* is about. On a hot summer day, would follow this up with another without blinking.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pilsner glass, it has 2 fingers of head that goes away quickly. It is active and bubbly, and cloudy yellow.

Aroma: faint, yeasty

Taste: crisp, citrusy, yeast prominent

Mouthfeel: Light, tangy, with moderate to high carbonation. Feels good on the tounge and goes down easy.

This is a great, refreshing light beer choice for a warm spring/summer day. I would drink it again.
