this pours a crystal clear golden straw like colour with a minimal head. The nose seems very fruity at first with Apple and citrus hints along with a light yeastiness. The taste reveals a lot of the same but with a pale malt sweetness up front followed by an earthy hop bitterness that tends to linger. The mouthfeel is very light and active but finishes quickly. A nice beer to take to the beach on a hot sunny day.

Pretty good kolsch, fruity ale taste but lager smoothness. I've had others of this style that have a more pleasant breadyness but this was still pleasant to drink.
