Poured into a Sester stange. Pours a light to medium coppery amber with a big two finger white head with good retetention and lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet and biscuit malt, hint of lemon, good Kolsch aroma. Flavor is sweet bready malt with light biscuit notes, light grassy hops and slight lemon in the finish. Medium bodied. The aroma got me excited, but the main initial flavors here are closer to a typical American lager, although there is biscuit and German style hops in the finish. A pleasant enough light lager, but not quite a traditional Kolsch.

I poured this into a glass, it has gold color body witj a small head to it. The smell has a light fruit, bread aroma to it. The taste has a light malt flavor and some grassy/hay notes to it also. I also get a little hop on the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a clear old gold colro with a medium sized white head that dissipates fairly quickly with slight lacing.

Smell is of light fruits and white bread, a bit of floral hops.

Tastes as it smells with a bit of sweet honey and citrus added. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth, a slight amount of lingering bitterness in the back end.

Overall, an easy drinker best suited for the warmer weather.
