Very clear golden straw color with a thin white head. lightly sweet with alittle breadiness and a dry ending. This tasted alittle like a lager.

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.

2.03/5  rDev -32.6%

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.

3.75/5  rDev +24.6%

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.
