Light golden, somewhat murky color. Medium, pure white head. Light, pleasant aroma with a hint of citrus. Mid-range body. Rather bubbly. Pleasant enough overall without overly "wowing" me.

Hazy pale gold with one finger of white five minute head. Some splotches of lace.
Smell is honey and malt.
Taste is honey malt and a good amount of herbal hops.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. The finish is slightly wet and balanced.
Overall a tasty novelty ale. Easy drinking.

Pours to thin white head and clear gold. Aroma is lemon, pale malt and white muscadine. Flavor is clean crisp malts, and a lemony but balanced finish. Mouthfeel is quite nice. Overall a pleasant experience.

Glass: Pint glass at a “pour it yourself” taphouse in Casper Wyoming, Frontier Brewing Co.
Color: Pale yellow with almost no head, glass was filled with bubbles.
Mouth: Light bodied and crisp with a bubbly mouth feel reminiscent of champagne.
Taste: Refreshing with just a touch of sweetness. Delicious grape and honey crisp apple notes. Surprisingly, almost no yeast or bread characteristics.

A DELICIOUS beer that I would like to drink for an entire summer day.

L: Pours a golden orange with a thin layer of white head. Moderately clear.
S: faint notes of citrus, slightly sweet
T: Interesting taste. Light citrus, maybe hints of grape must. Quite bready. Don't really have any experience with the Kolsch style, so I'm not really able to compare it with anything. Different from what I'm used to in a beer. It's not bad though.
F: Medium bodied. Quite crisp. Fairly dry finish
O: This was a decent beer and a nice change of pace.

Poured into narrow glass: color is hazy gold, head is off white with fine bubbles, head laces the glass sides well and lingers with a solid top.

Smell is light malt, definitely a noticeable difference between this and pilsner based kolsch aroma - less bready, toasty malt aroma; light honey floral notes.

Taste follows aroma with malt forward, light bread, some wheat like notes, then some honey sweetness; hops are fairly neutral, maybe some grass.

Mouthfeel is pleasant with full presence on the tongue, moderate carbonation, then a fairly drying finish.

Overall a slightly sweeter, less pronounced malt flavor version of a kolsch.

Had it from a smaller can. In plastic glass, near the fountain at the National Mall. Very unusual taste, just slightly sweet. Frefreshing. Goes well at 90F and high humidity.

DATE: May 26, 2018... OCCASION: having weathered Michael's tournament's first day--and its 90-degree temperature--I look to sip/slam something thirst-quenching... GLASSWARE: Ayinger willibecker... pours a golden yellow, slightly hazy and teeming with bubbles... its head forces me to wait before adding the rest of the can to it... the head itself is thick, foamy and two-fingered, with pock marks and cambers like melting snow... a healthy, fresh-looking ale... Saaz is strong, as is the honey and crisp bread malts... lagerish qualities of light floral notes also present themselves... as any good kolsch should, this one is an up-and-down kind of sipper--light, spritzy, slightly malty at the back end, cleansing in the middle and not requiring too much thought... the liveliness is appreciable, to be fair, and the body is tangible... the honey lends a rounded sweetness, while the hay and Saaz engage the taste buds... unique enough within the genre, this refreshes and pleases well enough too...
