3.9/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had on tap at whole foods- pours a clear golden yellow color with very little white head, modest retention and nice swathes of lacing.

Smell is almost nonexistent- faint smell of lemon, pale malt and yeast. Maybe some pepper but that could be my imagination.

Taste is very nice; subtle and well-balanced. Pale is the first thing I taste, followed closely but a mild burst of lemon and then pepper which melds back into the pale malt background.

Mouthfeel is great- light body, moderately well carbonated. This is a very good kolsch- would love to session it while grilling bratwurst.

It has a clear blonde color.

Not much of an aroma, but a bit of citrus and grassiness.

The flavor has a very classic kolsch flavor with grassy hops and a slight sweet malt. The backbone is a grainy and gentle bready malt.

There's a hint of lemon in there, but a good amount of fresh ground pepper on the back of your throat.

A really interesting brew. I would drink this more often.

A: Poured from the growler into a pilsner glass. Body is clear yellow with a small white head.

S: Grainy with some floral hops.

T: Follows the nose: cereal grains, floral hops and some underlying sweetness. Touch of peppery spice, though I can't help but wonder if that's the power of suggestion operating here. Finishes with a modest lemony bitterness that provides some refreshing balance.

M: Light in heft, fairly modest in carbonation.

O: Solid stuff - an easy drinker sitting on my friend Andy's patio.

Nice clear blonde in color with visible carbonation, a light head and lacing. Nice mild lemon citrus aroma. Light mouthfeel. The taste is light and refreshing with a light citrus and a hint of pepper in the finish. This is a very good easy drinking summer beer.
