Delicious, unobtrusive brew that pairs well with nearly everything because of its mild front end and clean finish. Holds its head nicely, leaving a thin lace all the way down the glass.

When poured it has clarion gold color and nice foamy head. The finish is clean and crisp quite like a pilsner, but it has a faint citrus flavor which adds to the beer's sweet maltiness. I personally think it is the best beer on the menu at Buffalo Wild Wings and goes well with mild/spicy wings. It is only $5.00/$4.00 for a 22 oz 'tall' at most Buffalo Wild Wings in the Midwest.

Pours a crystal clear golden straw color with a foamy white head that provides a decent amount of lacing. Beautiful beer.

The nose has light floral hops, some grass, and a bit of bread, which is where the taste lands, with a crisp, clean mouthfeel that fits the style.

I don’t typically go for these “brewed for” beers, but I’m glad I tried this one, because it’s an easy drinking kolsch, something I always enjoy.

Wild Herd pours a copper color, with no head. The aroma has a hint of grain and corn. The flavor is bright cereal with a hint of corn and cream. A little flat. Overall, it's a solid beer with good flavors in a lighter style.

Goose Island Wild Herd Kölsch, 5% ABV. Pours golden with a one-finger white head that left foamy lacing. Nose is malty, taste follows. Decent mouthfeel, overall very good.
