12ounce brown bottle freshness dated for December 2011
Jim Koch and his brewmasters have another great brew on their hit list!
The color is pale golden, the head is short lived though which lowered it's appearance points. The aroma is indeed Jasmine floral, crisp refreshing, definately a good summer quencher!

Poured from a 12oz bottle out of the summer sampler pack into a pint glass. This one was a home run.
Pours a brilliant clear golden yellow. Good fizzy white foam builds, holds and recedes.
Beautiful floral smell. Like a fragrant meadow. Clean, inviting.
Taste has a perfect blend of citrus, malt, a nature-like flowering taste. Clean, crisp finish. Subtle hop close.
Hoping this one sticks around. Perfect summer beer - much moreso than the Sam Summer!

I'm delighted to see another kolsch on the market as there just aren't enough!
Pours a golden yellow color with a thick, frothy head into my glass. Great way to start off things!
A mix of slightly grassy hops and sweet/lightly buttered malt greet the nose. Similar to a good czech pilsener, though completely different styles.
Wow, where to start? Sweet, grainy, lightly buttered malt mingles with just the right amount of hop. Very tasty. Crisp. I can't get enough of it.
Mouthfeel has plenty of lingering, sweet malt to please the taste buds over and over.
The other ratings don't do this beer justice. It's a style that I feel is highly accessible and worth trying.
