look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a pint bottle into Kolsch glass, clear bright golden color, 2 finger head, light lacing decent retention tight bubbles, excellent carbonation

Aroma had a nice malty slightly grassy, with just a hint of some european hoppiness

Taste had a white grape fruitiness with some grains, very slight bitterness of hops in back

Crisp clean and refreshing mouthfeel that finishes with a slight hop at the end. Very pleasing.

Overall, this is an outstanding example of the true German version of this ale, and not a hint of skunkiness in my bottles. Proper importing is key to these types, and they can't sit forever. Buy them from a store that keeps them in the dark and you will be rewarded. Go out and look for this one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: Pure golden colored body. Foamy white head with decent retention. Light soapy lacing.

Aroma: Malt grains, slight grassiness, and a bit of a tangy note.

Taste: A clean grain beginning, a hint of lemongrass, tea tang finish.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp, clean.

Overall: Just a slight skunky note about this that keeps it from being fantastic. Very clean and refreshing though.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Golden copper clear filtered with lots of fine bubbled carbonation, a finger of yellowish white head that fades fast.

S: White grapes, white wine or grape juice, lightly toasted malts.

T: Deep rich lightly toasted malts and dough, light white grapes and grape juice. Light bitter hopping on the end.

M: Light body, lots of carbonation, dry finish.

O: Awesome standard for this style. The best kolsch I’ve ever had. Dry and smooth, nice vinous scents and doughy taste. Drank at Turkey Creek June 28, 2014 on my daughter’s second birthday.
