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.

New seasonal from Point, I really like the label on this one. 12 oz brown longneck poured into a pint glass, the beer is a bright, light gold with a off-white head.

Grains, pear and light floral note on the nose.
The taste tracks the smell. It has a light grains, some fruit (pear and apple) and some slight spice in the finish. It has a slight sour note mid-glass, which I like.

The mouth is slightly creamy with a bit of an astringent bite.

Easy drinker here. I think the Point folks got this one right in the wheel house. Well Done!

12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a stange.
0032 printed on the neck in pink. No info on bottle. (4.9% ABV, 13.5 IBUs, 150 calories)

A - Crisp clear, bright golden yellow-colored, Point Three Kings features a well-formed and long-lasting bright white head. Rings of sticky lace are left clinging to the stange.

S - An overpowering light-struck skunk aroma upon the crack of the cap subsides once poured into the stange to allow more of the subtle lager-like nuances through. Grainy pale straw and lightly buttered wheat bread fall into place with an almost unnoticeable floral noble hop aroma on the finish. Crisp and clean with minor imperfections here.

T - Much more imperfection-less in flavor, the skunkiness doesn't carry into the mouth. Hard grainy pale malt is softened out by a touch of pilsner malt sweetness and wheat on the finish. Again, hops are near absent, mainly used for balance but give the finish just a pinch of floral character.

M - Light-bodied and crisp, there isn't much place for flaws to hide here, rather, the beer sticks to basics; good refreshing carbonation, clean body, and light floral, dry bitterness for balance.

O - Almost lager-like in quality and cleanliness, this Kölsch is a fantastic lawnmower beer for the warm spring-to-hot summer months. Delicately pairing soft floral hops with pale and pils malt and soft wheat undertones, this clean beer is, as they say, "well made".

Reviewed from notes.

A. Very slightly hazed lemon yellow color with a persistent little collar ring for a head, no lacing left behind.

S. Faint grassy/herbal hopping with a mellow honeyed malt and a whisper-thin breath of pears.

T. Similar to the what the nose would have predicted, a flash of honeyed sweetness tempered by floral hopping most of all, has a slight tart edge at times but only just a in brief moments... sort of like a white pear would have. Not that it is actually all that sweet mind you...more like it has the minor tartness and acidity of that pear without most of the sugar from the pear. That's really the best that I can describe it. Finish is on the drier half of semi-sweet and floral, but also not particularly extended nor deep.

M. Lighter bodied, thirst quenching, well carbonated.

If only there was some sort of head and maybe some sort of lemon peel note this could have been a pretty awesome Kolsch.

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.

A - A good two inches of big bubbled, moderately quick-lived, almost pure white head. Once it gets to a quarter inch or so it displays some good stamina. Impressive really for such a brew. The body is golden yellow with a modest amount of rising carbonation.

S - Certainly a pale malt base which was evident by its color but also by its aroma. Lightly hopped in the aroma department as there is very little if any to notice.

T - It tastes good. It tastes like I would imagine it should by looking at it, smelling it, and of course researching what the style calls for. There's a sharpness to the malt likely brought about by the combination with the hops and there is a very trace grape presence. I actually thought that even before the research I did on the style. Well done in my opinion.

M - Light bodied with a fair amount of coarse feel all over my tongue and into the top back of my throat. It leaves a very round dryness throughout my entire mouth.

~ I am obviously extremely impressed by this beer from my local brewery. They've created an easy drinking light bodied beer that I will actually enjoy. I'm already a big proponent of Point Special Lager and now I can support my local brewery with sessions of this ale. Cheers to you Stevens Point Brewery. Keep up the good work.

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.
