A: light gold, clear body; very little head
S: light aroma, slightly lemony
T: the traditional light Koelsch taste, but wonderfully spiced and spread throughout the mouth; the flavor lingers for some time; hints of rose.

The beer is quite drinkable, and was my wife's favorite. It's a perfect summer beer. This was based on a spring/early summer 2010 batch.

L: Pours a nice golden yellow with a nice sized and bodied white colored head that laces the glass nicely on the way down.
S: Smells of sweet toasted malts, some citrusy notes at the end.
T: Like the nose, tastes like sweet toasted malts underneath a hint of citrus and a nice citrusy hop finish.
M: Very crisp, refreshing, fresh, perfect amount of carbonation.
D: Very drinkable beer, this is one of those beers you could drink all day.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent dark golden brass with a thin, spotty white head. Aroma of semi-sweet pale malt with a healthy dose of light fruity esters and grassy hops. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness along with a good noble hop bitterness before a smooth, drinkable, but average finish.

On-tap at brewery in a pint glass.

A - Nice light golden yellow color with a little bit of white head that stays for a while.

S - Light smell of citrus and some malt but thats really it.

T - Nice malty flavors with a good citrus finish. Very light.

M - Light bodied with good carbonation.

D - Good beer. I used to frequent Summit Station before I moved to OH and before they changed management to Growler's. This is their mainstay beer. They didn't used to have any beers on tap that were not house brews and this is what they suggest to anyone who like BMC's. It's a great beer to enjoy out on the patio bar in the summer while hanging out with your friends.
