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

Bottle pours a crystal clear light goolden body with a small white head. Poor retention and just a few specks of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is subtle but features grassy and herbal hops, a hint of fruity green apple, and some toasted grain.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and crisply carbonated.

Taste has a prevailing herbal and grassy bitterness that is balanced by just a hint of honey sweetness. Clean but slightly grainy malt base. Finishes crisp and dry.

Very well crafted kolsch. One of the better warm weather beers I've run across in awhile.

Pours hazy, gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is lemon, grass, and a bit of breadiness. Hits all of the expected kolsch notes. Really easy drinking, light, summery beer. I will get this again.

I had this on-tap and was impressed. There's an earthiness in the taste that adds to the body and made this highly quaffable. I'll be picking up a six-pack shortly.

Appearance: very light yellow in color; the head disappeared quickly, nice bubbleage.

Smell: slightly hoppy with hint of grass, maybe lemon-apple too.

Taste: crisp, malty beer that has a slightly sweet grain flavor

Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean, dry

Drinkability: As with other Kölsch, this one is great for summer. It was easy to drink and light to the belly.

Not a bad beer. Pours a beautiful orange-amber color with a decent head. Aroma is extremely light. Flavor is also very mild with hints of hops and a touch of citrus. This beer is very refreshing and easy drinking. Crisp, clean finish.

8/9...pours medium dark copper. White foam layers, settles with a ring. Clean crisp nose but light. Taste has a nutty start, then fades into a light hop. Clean finish. Chewy. Bready. Much happening for something so simple.
