Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with a "Bottled with live on..." date. This was very attractive in the glass with a bright and clear golden with a creamy, sustained white-head.
The aroma was fresh and sweet with some spicy overtones of European hops.
For a hot day this was an excellent thirst quencher with a consistent soft and creamy mouthfeel with a a crisp and refreshing hop profile complemented by sweet cracker-like malt flavor. The hints of lemon only add to the thirst quenching quality. The carbonation was rather subtle for the style. There was very little lingering aftertaste, but this is not intended as a complex ale.
This is a fine, light-bodied quaffable ale in the kolsch tradition. I have yet to be disappointed with Schlafly.

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.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of buttery notes with light cereal notes also discernible. Taste is also dominated by unrefined grainy notes with light buttery aftertaste. Body is about average with medium carbonation. Definitely not as good as most example of the style.
