tap at the brewery

Pours a light clear gold, white sudsy head retains as a bit of lacing.

Smells of light sugary sweet malts, a bit grassy.

Flavor follows, very simple crisp malts.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation.

This beer doesn't do much. What it does do, it does very well. It's not very dynamic and nothing beyond your standard Kolsch, except excellent across the board in that regard. Light, crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable with food or as a session brew.

Very delineated and full-tasting kolsch here. Appearance is clear and golden with a bit of lively carbonation that quickly settles. No lacing of note. Aroma is earthy with a little hay and grain. Again, taste very representative of the kolsch style: light on the base malts with just a bit of balancing hops. Finish is clean and not too dry. Recommended for those traveling to the Outer Banks.

Bomber courtesy of johnqvegas I beleive...

Very clear golden body with tons of streaming bubbles running up the middle in torrents of effervescent trails. Huge 3 finger head. Great retention. Nice legs, spotty lacing.

Smells musty, grainy, and a hint of lemony grassiness.
The flavor has a touch of sweetness, like cereal malts, before a dry grainy malt smooths it over. That musty note is so interesting-- it is dry and dusty, like the smell of stored grain on a farm... Something here reminds me of a gueuze-- not sour at all, and certainly I do not mean to make thy claim-- but something in that musty note reminds me of a gueuze. I like it. I really do.

Light-bodied, well-carbonated, and quite easy to drink. This beer can be sipped or gulped-- I could imagine this beer being quite refreshing!

Not a bad Kolsch. Not bad at all. In fact, this is one of the more e notable Kolsch beers I've had in a while.

On tap at the Mellow in Greensboro.Poured a light clear golden with thinner but well retained white head atop,buttered toast aromas with a light iron tinge.Heavy on the buttery flavors,way to heavy handed,again it smells and tastes like buttered toast.Not a beer I would seek out,I have never had a Kolsch that tasted anything like this I gotta say.

Popped a bottle after coming off the beach down in Corolla.
Pours a light honey color with little carbonation and hardly any head. It had a small white head that fades fast with no lacing.

Aroma wise, I pick up a biscuit or grainy malt bill and no hops.

Taste is light with straw and grass and alittle citrus.

Mouthfeel was light and drank more like punch.

Nothing special about this beer. You can guzzle one of these babies no problem. I doubt that ABV rating seriously.
Well at lest I helped to support the local economy.

A: This poured a clear gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like hay and corn and roasted barley, with a bit of citrus zest.
T: It tasted like hay and corn and rusty copper, with a little waxy and grassy hops. It had a somewhat bitter aftertaste, but not very smooth.
M: It was slightly thick with a little carbonation. Kind of weak.
D: This was another less than average example of a boring style. Its scent and taste were less than impressive, but at least the body was ok. Easy enough to chug through this one, but not at all rewarding to drink. Not recommended.
