Bottled 3/21/14. Poured 7/1/14.
Appearance: Aggressive pour gave about a finger of white head that went away pretty quickly. The beer is banana yellow in color with a pretty big haze. Just about no lacing.
Smell: True to the style and then some. Spicy. Biscuity sort of malt. Hay sort of quality. Maybe a banana-y ester. Nice bit of hopping. Smells excellent.
Taste/feel: Damn that is tasty. First, the beer has an unexpected semi-creamy texture with some good prickly carbonation. The taste is great. Biscuity malt, spiciness from the hops, a banana sort of flavor, a little wheat character... finish is super clean and not bitter.
Really nice. I haven't had many Kolsch's at all, but this is my favorite so far. It's just a great beer.A light ABV beer that isn't light on flavor is always a plus. For the style, this IS outstanding.

A great spring time style beer, smells great looks great and taste great. Bottled for the first time in 2012 wish they had bottled it in 2013 but is currently at the pub and worth a growler fill for sure. Not my favorite style of beer but done well enough that I like it.
