22oz bottle poured into a mug.

Pours a crystal clear deep good with a fluffy two finger white head. Head retention is awesome as some sort of head lasts all the way through the drink. Lacing leaves a bit to be desired, though.

Aroma is very bready with some light touches of caramel along with floral notes from the hops. Very soft and delicate and true to the style.

The flavor is also quite bready with touches of biscuit. Grass from the hops is subtle but noticeable. Bitterness is on the light side with a very soft, silky mouthfeel. The finish is a touch sweet but drinkability is still high.

Overall, this is a very nice kolsch and a great lawnmower beer. If this were readily available and cheap I would drink it constantly.

a: perfect for style; light straw, brilliant clarity with a finger+ of snow white head that left no lace.

s: skunky; definite flaw. Under that the promise of Kolsch wonderment.

t: OK. Pretty well balanced and hint of the malty sweetness the style is known for. A trifle thin and a tad over-hopped? Here the flaws of this beer were totally exposed when tasting back to back against homebrews. Skunky and bitter--maybe a tad sour--when pitted against homebrewed exemplars.

m: As a lawnmower high 40's low 50's kind of beer not much to say.

0: I disagree that this is a very good beer. If you have never experienced the magic of Kolsch this is definitely a must try. If you know Kolsch it's pretty lame as Kolsch is fragile and best drunk young before even minor amts of oxidation turn it into just another quickly forgotten thirst quencher.

Bottle poured into glass

Pours a clear, golden yellow with a steady stream of carbonation that creates a a billowy, white two finger foam cap. Settles to a white layer with very nice lacings.

Aromas of grassy, herbal and sweet malt.

Crisp , light , active carbonation. Grassy hops, a hint of sweetness from the malts.

Nice light refreshing beer. Ideally suited for a hot. Sweltering summer day.

I love this style and drink Sunner everytime I see it on a menu. American breweries haven't nailed a good kolsch yet.

This is a light yellow beer with a white head and medium carbonation. Aroma is sweet grain and noble hops (grassy, herbal). Flavors are sweet grain upfront and some noble hop flavors. I also get some subtle apple or pear-like fruitiness from the yeast. Mouthfeel is crisp with a dry finish..
