Served in a tumbler.

Nice to get to try a brand new seasonal. This one pours a clear pale gold topped by a finger or so of white froth. The nose comprises light white bread, light green apple skin, light corn cob, and a touch of honeydew. The taste comes off as a slightly old and musty apple-flavored rice cake. Yeah, I know they're apple-cinnamon-flavored, but the cinny ain't nowhere near here, kiddies. Unfortunately. Not a fan of this one bit, especially as it made me visibly wince after each sip. The body is light, with a moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a sad kolsch, one that did not sit well with me in any way.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours light in color, with a thin head, lacing lasts on the glass.

Smell was nominal, very light.

Taste was good for a light beer. However, I was expecting some punch. It just wasn't there.

Mouth feel is light bodied.

Overall the beer came across way to light for me. If your in the mood for a light tasting beer on a warm summer day this would satisfy. I was just expecting a little more flavor.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear lemon yellow body with a big bubble carbonation and a fizzy white head that is soon gone leaving a few bubbles to the side of the glass.

S- The dry field corn aroma has a green bitterness in the finish that grows but otherwise the aroma is pretty clean.

T- The dry sulfur and corn taste has some Noble hop hint in the finish with a dandelion and pith bitterness that lingers after each sip.

M- The light mouthfeel has a full fizzy finish that only enhances the bitterness.

O- This beer is dry and thin with no Kolsch characters at all and becomes a bit harsh making hard to finish one glass.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A- The beer comes out the color of a very beautiful light gold with very noticeable carbonation. The constant rapid stream of little bubbles in this beer almost remind me of looking at a bubble jet in a fish tank. Upon pouring it into the glass a light white head of foam rises to the top but is very short-lived before it dissolves away within the first minute or so. A white thin ring around the edges of the glass, and very thin light splotches are all that remain afterwords.

S- The scent hits the nose in a very clean manner. Hints of fresh spring water are present along with faint notes of plain white bread. There is a slight spiciness to it as well that almost seems a little bit like slight hop or citrus notes. Overall tough I found the smell to be very faint and hard to detect/judge.

T- The taste is very beady and reminiscent of light grains and finishes tasting almost a bit sour. The ending is very reminiscent of grapes, specifically ones that would be used to make wine. Keep in mind however that it isn't actually sour at the end, it just gives off a very sweet taste and sour feel that definitely wouldn't make anyone pucker or anything. The taste is somewhat long lasting and lingers in your mouth. Definitely left me wanting to go back in for another sip.

M- It feels very full bodied. There is a noticeable crispness due to the carbonation. Despite the carbonation however it almost feels a bit thick. The end of each sip feels as if it coats your mouth/the back of your tongue with a lingering layer that seems to really leave you wanting to drink more.

O- This Kolsch seemed to be somewhat intense to me. The sourness was somewhat odd but as I had stated before, it was very faint. After reviewing this beer last night I drank about three more of them over the course of a few hours and I must say that I definitely did not really detect the sourness once my mind was preoccupied with other things. It was an overall average beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

It looks like a Kolsch in the color, a pale golden yellow, only rather than the usual mild haze there's a heavy thickness. The head is clean white in color. It rises high but falls quickly, leaving a frothy foam on top and spotting behind.
The aroma's clean, if nothing else. There are lots of fruity esters and a wet powdered sugar sweetness along with a leafy light bitterness. It's a little bit bready as well.
I'm not sure what I'm tasting here, but I think somewhere along the line someone tricked these guys into thinking any light beer could be called a Kolsch. What there is is lots of sweetness, plenty of fruits mostly of pear and apple but with some tropical notes as well, and extremely light grassy bitterness. What isn't here is any kind of dryness to offset or balance it, any vinous character whatsoever, or pretty much anything distinguishing the style. It's fine to drink, but to style it's not. I suppose I should have known that when I read the words "Kolsch" and "ale" on the bottle together.
The feel is fine. The body is light, it's crisp, and it's clean. Dryness is lacking, though, and the same vinous character absent from the smell and taste is likewise absent in the feel.

Soft malt and a bit of yeast, but not the yeast I normally consider for the listed style.
Very clear yellow mostly. Small white head settles out quickly.
A little tart with some puckering on the cheeks.. Soft malt. A little citrus type fruit.
Moderately light feel with ample carbonation.
Easy drinker. Seems little odd for winter/spring seasonal. Fitting right now for 90 degree weather.
For as much as I like this brewery and as much as I want to like this - meh.
