4.03/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Aroma: Faint Pils malt, subtle pear/apple fruit esters
Appearance: Light gold in color, half an inch of a fine white head that collapses into a thin ring.
Flavor: A soft well rounded palate, the malt is attenuated without being noticeably dry. Just a hint of hops with low bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium body but smooth and crisp with medium carbonation
Overall Impression: Clean, crisp, very mild beer with rounded flavor and body.
Comments: This beer may be too subtle for most craft beer fans, especially hopheads, however it is a good balanced example of a Kolsch ale without any crude characteristics.

Great bubblin to this golden pilsner looking ale. Great head and great retention, Just a little little bit of lacing after each sip.

Super cereal grain and unmalted barley aromas. Then some clean hop aromas.

Simple, light fruity yeast and malt flavor combo upront. Then some of those cereal grains pop up from the middle to the finish. The finish is clean malty, and a little sweet.

The palate is flavor, refreshing, and tickles my palate. This is one of the best Kolsh style ales I've had yet.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Arrived a hazy straw yellow with a one finger white head.

Aroma of bready grain and a little bit of fruit. Not a whole lot going on.

A pleasant breadyness jumps out immediately in the flavor. There is just a small amount of caramel along with some fruity hops contributing a light bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth.

Overall this is a pretty average Kolsch but it quite tasty and incredibly smooth. A great thirst quencher or session beer.
