Nice straw color with hints of light amber. Thin head that disappears rather quickly leaving no lacing patterns. Aroma of dried grass and apples with a touch of bannana and plum (possibly vanilla). More apple and grass with the taste and something along the lines of tomato and herbs. Fairly heavy body with medium carbonation that fades quickly. This is the first Kolsch I've had in awhile and it makes me want to go after a few more.

An extremely transluscent pale straw color brew serves prelude to the light and crisp flavors of tart granny smith apple, sun-roasted grass, spicy hops, thyme and wild herb presence, honey, and pear sweetness. Spicy and bitter on the nose with citric acidity. Comes together nicely, well-attenuated and reminds me of the new wave of hoppier, drier ciders. Chewier than ciders with a notable maltiness lending a comforting caramel aspect compliments a relatively high bitterness.

Brilliant pale yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a short, fizzy, white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Earthy dry grain, bready and lightly toasted malt and light herbal floral hop aromas. Medium bodied with an oily feel on the tongue surrounded by crisp, drying carbonation throughout. A nice balance of bready malt and herbal hop flavors throughout. Finished crisp and bone dry with light herbal hop aftertaste. A superb, crisp, refreshing summertime ale.
