3.55/5 rDev +4.1%
Poured from a bottle into a stange.
A - Pours a hazy, nice light gold color, with a chalk white two-finger foamy head. Ringlets of sticky lacing.
S - Healthy aroma of noble hops, popcorn butter, and lemon zest.
T - Spicy hops forward. Esters of buttered crackers, and lemon-lime tartness in the mid-palate. Just a hint of hop flower in the aftertaste. Decently balanced. Flavors while not "bold" are assertive enough. This taste seems very familiar....
M - Medium bodied, with prickly carbonation. The slightly thicker body than expected goes a long way to improve the drinkability. Finishes crisp.
O - Hey....wait a minute...you can't fool me Sam Adams!! This tastes almost exactly like the old "Sam Adams Spring Ale". (I would not be surprised if it was the same recipe with a different label) Decent then, decent now. And much better than some of their "Spring" offerings in recent years.

3.28/5 rDev -3.8%
Appearance: Cloudy gold with a decent head and moderate carbonation.
Smell: Malt, spice, grass.
Taste: Grains, bready malts, spice, lemongrass.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied.
The Verdict: Average. A weak, watered down kolsch that’s sorely lacking in flavor. I’m starting to think that perhaps I should stick with Boston Brewing’s darker beers. I’m invariably disappointed in their lighter offerings.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a perfect pint.
A: Light golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, foamy, white head. Settles slowly. Pervasive rising effervescence is evident. Fair amounts of spider web lacing.
S: Wheat, yeast, with a touch of citrus.
T: Pungent yeasty bread.
M: Light and bitter.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Foamy head, and fair lacing. Nose bready and yeasty. Pungent and yeasty flavor. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

Appearance: high carbonation, 1/2 inch head, hazy, gold in color
Smell: wheat and honey
Taste: honey, orange, and cracker dominate
Mouthfeel: sweet, light body, high carbonation
Overall: A nice, sessionable, and clean kolsch. Feels like a good summer brew. Could easily put away several of these.
