One of their best. A creamy lovely kolsch, that cuts the edge of the style. Cloudy blonde, like my kids' hair. Creamy mouthfeel. German pearly hops used, and some wheat. Citrus on the lemony side. Refreshing clean with nice finish not so dry. A winning summer brew. Tim, bottle this one please.

It was pretty good beer. Not quite my favorite of all time. From this brewery, I liked the Rusty Chain better. This beer had a pleasant appearance. Taste was somewhat complex, in that it had a variety of pleasant notes. A little bit of a floral note. My wife thought it was a slightly sour (as opposed to sweet) and a tad bitter. Again, overall a good drinkable beer.

Growler filled at the Flying Bison Brewery and poured to a glass of the same.

Ah, a nice summer day calls for a nice summer brew. Since this is brewed basically in my back yard making it the freshest summer brew i could get my hands on. Pours a clear clean golden pale with medium visible carbonation and a 1 finger head that gives some decent retention through out the pint. Smells of grain, earthy, slight hops, slight caramel, and slight citrus. Nice fruity malts on the tongue, juicy apples, spice, ginger, mild hops on the finish. Nice German style lager. Extremely crisp and refreshing this beer screams "lawnmower beer", light in body, and leaves the mouth dry for another sip. Overall this is pretty good, very good when very cold and hits the summer beer spot.

A: pours a deep golden color, clear and well-carbonated, only light foam which leaves only a slight ring of lacing.

S: light dry and similarly light toasty grain notes, refreshing essence

T: begins mild yet buttery, dry bitter hops present themselves through the middle, with a light dryness melding with a buttery/toasty finish.

O: smooth and refreshing, decent abv, very drinkable.
