Not a big fan of this style of beer so i don't drink alot of it. This is a very light beer that had almost no color slightly golden. Aroma was very very faint and was like my rating very average, but easy to drink for even the lightest beer drinker.................CHEERS

Perfectly clear light straw color. A slight bubbly white head with some retention. Nice subdued pilsner malt aroma. Very slight bitterness, but it is there. Light body. Easy drinking.

Kolsch is a somewhat simple style of beer, but if it is brewed properly, a kolsch can be very enjoyable. This one is good. Another good addition to the poolside cooler.

Pretty weak. I was hoping for a nice hoppy NW style Golden and it ended up being a bland Blond kind of beer. Thank god only two came in the mixed twelve pack.

look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Has some chaotic artsy fartsy work on the label, but no clear freshness date.

Appearance: Clear, bright golden-yellow with a thin creamy white lace -- just enough retention to keep me interested.

Smell: Pungent, a bit apple-cidery, slightly floral. Musty.

Taste: Smooth, creamy, light and refreshing on the palate. Malt presence is mild, not sweet at all, and lends more to the body of the beer. Hops are herbally, with a very watery lemon flavour. Thin fruitiness, hints of apple skin. Goes crisp, grainy and then dry ... straight into the finish, which thins out and contains a background bready flavour.

Notes: Not too fond of this beer. In fact, it's a close to poor excuse for a Kölsch, mediocre at best. "Why?" comes to mind as I look at all of the other selections on the beer shelves ... and that's not good at all.

A very drinkable golden ale. The dog tearing up a bike tire on the label makes you think it might be something with some bite, but it is actually quite mild and easygoing. Restrained slightly fruity hops and a good malt backbone.

Even though the 6-pack I purchased was 9 months past the 'best before' date, this was a much enjoyed drink. Fruity malty aromas on the nose, this combonation carries over onto the palate. Amaising how similar a smell and taste can be. Finishes very dry. Even though the head dissipates basically to nothing and has a yellow straw color, it's packed with sediment! Pick this up sometime.
