Pours a mostly clear, yellow color. Not too much of a scent with some grains and wheat. Taste is rather malty while the texture seems a little too thin. There are some hints of citrus. Being my first Kolsch style beer, I’m not sure if this is good or not for the style. Quite drinkable, just wish there was some more volume and taste to the beer.

Picked up a single at Butch's Dry Dock in Holland, MI

A - poured a very light, clear golden yellow and lacking a head

S - nose is grainy malts with some spicy hops

A - opens up with the sweet, grain malt flavors that hold strong throughout most of the beer. On the end, a little bit of citrus and spicy hops round it off. Not the most complex beer out there, but then again this isn't a style that is supposed to be.

M - mouth is a little watery with a good amount of carbonation on the back end

D - this is a pretty good Kolsch. Not as refreshing as others I have in this style, but pretty good to drink on this 94 degree day.

3.68/5  rDev -4.2%

Appearance: a light yellow color. strong haziness. small white head that leaves a little bit of a lacing.

Smell: spicy pilsner matls. more lager malts. some citrus

Taste: opens up with malts, a spicy one and a bready one. slight citrusy hops that finishes with a musty grassy taste

Mouthfeel: no hop bitterness. pretty light but not quite clean enough

Overall: a solid beer but not outstanding.
