Picked up as part of a "make your own six-pack" at the Bayou Smokehouse store in Banner Eagle NC. Not bad for a Kolsch. Poured into a pint glass...a hazy dull gold color. Small white head with average retention and some lacing.

Smell is mild...grassy hops and a little bready malt.

Taste is pretty good. Aside from the basic lager flavors - mild maltiness and hops, there is a little lemon zest and funkiness going on....kind of like a Saison-very-Lite" that adds a bit of complexity to the beer. Goes beyond "at least it is better than Bud" as far as flavors go.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Just right for a summer refreshment, session beer/lawnmower beer. The amount of bitterness is just right for the style and the extra flavors give it a nice boost.

Overall one of the better Kolsch beers I have tried.

Pours a clear, rather wan straw yellow with a typical and not persistent white head. Malty aroma is more hopeful, though, with hints of apple, butterscotch and hops. Flavor is malty with subtle fruity and hoppy notes, nothing special. Texture has below average body and average fizz. Guess this isn’t Big Boss’ best, or maybe my bottle came from a bum batch.

12 oz bottle dated July 2011 (production date).

pours a hazy yellow straw color with a small, fragile white head. Some sediment was left on the bottom of the bottle; a portion of this was added mid-tasting.

The aroma is faint but pleasant, featuring pale malt with a hint of floral hops. ... yes, there is more than a trace of hops here, leaving a reported IBU of 20. The flavor largely follows the aroma. However, this is very mildly bitter although it smells a bit sweet. Also, a lightly baked biscuit flavor and a hint of citrus come out in the taste.

M - light bodied; semi-dry finish

O - as expected for style, this is not very flavorful or aromatic. This Kolsch is well-balanced and easily recommended if you like this style. It is refreshing and thirst quenching.
