Pours a clear golden yellow color with a rough white head that fades quickly leaving little chunks of lacing.

Smells of slight fruity and grassy notes.

Tastes of the grainy sweetness mostly. Fairly light with some bread and a bit of grape like notes. Hops are hidden a little, but do come through as it warms adding a grassy and floral touch.

Mouthfeel is light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nice refreshing beer and it is quite enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Best Before: 07/21/13.

Appearance: Pours a clear, light yellow body with a tall, proud, white head. Drips and blurbs of lacing on the way down.

Smell: Easy-going malts, a little sun-dried hay, a touch of crustless white loaf bread. Fruity-scented accents smelling of apple and sweet white grapes. Thin sliver of hoppiness.

Taste: Soft maltiness, though, with a skosh more cereal sweetness than expected. A touch of sulphury apple lands early, a few drips of white wine. Lightly herbal hops, lightly bitter. Sweetish, fruityish finish with a good mouth of suds.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Refreshing, easy-drinking. Solid enough for an American-born Kölsch.

Ok, so not quite a great kolsch, but pretty good and easy drinking.

Light and biscuity, with a touch of grain huskiness. It does maintain a steady body throughout and a tight crispness on the end. this is a nice session beer that doulbes as a good summer ale

This is a very good, solid kolsch.

Deep gold, it has a medium-big off-white head slowly shrinking to thin foamy ring, a little bit of lace.

Aroma is nice bright grain, flowery herbs (gentle), a firm, nice kolsch.

Taste is nice, full fruity grain, apple, hint of faint herb and flowers, with a mostly grassy bitterness, which is light and balances the light sweetness. Overall, it's fairly dry, very minerally, crisp.

Pours a light orange with a creamy white head that does not go away.

Smells of bready lager yeast with some biscuit and sulfur notes.

Up front bready lager character that goes into a bitter and sulfur middle before ending on a slightly sweet and grassy flavor. The hops give this somewhat of a grassy/earthy note, which is nice for Spring. Pretty one dimensional, which is typical for the style.

Light body with lighter carbonation and a great, creamy mouthfeel.

I think is is a fine kolsch, which reminds me, I don't really like this style.

Presentation: 12 oz short bottle, bright colored label with a hoodoo rock formation. Nice change from some of the older Uinta designs. Bottled on date marked, but I don't see an ABV.

Appearance: Clear golden, thick head with good retention and lacing.

Smell: Bready malt and just a bit of citrus, no noticeable hops.

Taste: Smooth mouthfeel and medium carbonation levels. Quite a bit of citrus in the taste, with a bready malt flavor dominating.

Overall impression: Decent light offering, good flavor but nothing interesting enough to make me want to come back for more.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: This one has a clear bright golden body with a tall loose head on top. This head settles down quickly leaving just a few bubbles at the surface and around the edge of the glass.

Smell: There is not much going on here. The aroma is very light. Only a slight citrusy hop presence is noted.

Taste / Palate: The flavor profile is very clean and light. There is a very modest and refreshing cracker like malty base with mild lemony hop bitterness. The finish is quick and fairly dry.

Appearance: Pours quite a golden color with a white foamy head.

Aroma: Lemon zest, grassy, light citrus hop, golden rasins slight amount of biscuty notes towards the back.

Taste: Very crisp in the front with notes of lemon zest, tart fruit, raisins a little bit of a butery texture and good biscuit notes.

Notes: Not a bad beer at all it's rather good not over powering and it has a good dry finish also very drinkable. Cheers.
