The temperature is 105 F today in Virginia. Kölsch time.
The Shafly poured brilliant light golden, with nicely active foamy head that falls moderately fast. The pilsner malt aroma is gently emphatic and telegraphs the flavor profile. Starts of with a soft malty entrance, quickly braced and balanced by a gently firm hop backbone. The finish is long, smoothly bitter, very refreshing and satisfying. In the mouth the impression is crisp, clean, and refreshing.
I notice lots of folks have graded this brew as somewhat mediocre. I could not agree less. Schafley's Kölsch is right on the target, stylistically, and a fresh, refreshing, superior example of the style. I enjoyed this beer today, and I intend to do so again and again.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retrntion and lacing.
The smell featured an upfront grassy hop and clean grainy pilsner malt.
The taste consisted of vibrant grassy hops and a clean pilsner graininess.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a tasty and quaffable kolsch.
