Appearance: Slightly hazy, light golden in color with a massive, coarse white head, which fades all too soon. The carbonation is faint, Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Grassy hops with the scent of new-mown hay vie with lightly-toasted malts.

Taste: Grassy and noble hops open the taste, soon followed by lightly-toasted malts. The malts offer a bread and cracker flavor, slightly reminiscent of a Pilsner. As the taste progresses, the malt and hops find a harmonious balance, with neither outshining the other. Late in the taste, some leafy hop notes appear, bringing the taste to a graceful close.

Mouth feel: Smooth, pleasant, a touch thin, with soft carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A nice example, very well-crafted as with all Real Ale offerings, and fairly true to its German antecedent, although a bit hoppier. A very pleasant summer beer, and quite acceptable to offer to macro beer drinkers.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

A: A golden blonde color with a mild haze. It was poured into an english style pint glass and formed a small half finger of foam that quickly fell leaving only a ring of bright white bubbles around the edge of the glass.

S: Light, subtle aroma in the way of fresh bread, lemon candy and grain.

T: Nice clean grainy, bready malt profile with a small amount of noble hop flavor in the middle and end. A lager like yeast character, very clean and balanced. A hard beer to describe in the flavor since its very simple but not boring. Balance is the key on this one.

M: Clean, crisp with a lower carbonation and a light body. very drinkable. a small amount of grainy astringency in the after taste from the dry finish but it works well and adds to the flavor.

O: This is a great Kolsch. Some examples I've had never come close to getting that lager character this one has and having be so balanced and refreshing on top of that makes this probably one of my favorite Kolsch's. Cheers to canadianghetto for the extra, it was a winner!

3.94/5  rDev -0.3%

Pretty good looking, lightly tan and clear, some rising bubbles, a nice white head that settled to a good cap and left some pretty good lace.

Aroma and flavor are somewhat more like my idea of a German pilsner, grainy, grassy, but still with that classic kolsch yeast note and some spiciness.

It's certainly easy to drink, tasty, and fits my idea of the level of quality that I've come to expect from RABC.
