This is the best looking Kolsch Ale I've ever seen with a bright iridescent yellow and a thick white foam. The nose is full of malt and grain. The flavor is very assertive for the style with a cereal malt, light barley, nutty pecan and a kilned grain. Kolsch is not the style I go to for flavor but this one is well done.

Surprised to see such a high rating but it is a good beer, just a style that is not that exciting. Pours a clear light gold color from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass. Small white head that fades pretty fast. Light, thin bands of lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste are light biscuity malt and very mild white grapes. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with some mild bitterness. Very refreshing. Would make a fine session beer.

12 ounce can into a pilsner glass.

Damn this beer is good. Beautiful looking golden/straw-colored body with a tinge of haze. Shows a finger of foamy, pale white head.

Smells of sweet, French bread and light honey. Light earthy floral hints.

Taste is much like the nose. Sweet, bready malt with a hint of earthy honey and floral bouquet. Simple, straight-forward, but delicious.

Light, refreshing, clean, rich, a healthily restrained sweetness. Excellent all around.

This is damn good.

A: Clear pale yellow with a visibly active and vibrant carbonation level. Forms about a 1/2" of fluffy white head. Decent retention with light lacing.

S: Light lemon citrus and pale malt. Typical for the style.

T: Lightly sweet with a light tart funkiness. Biscuit malts with a faint grassy hoppiness. Simplistic, but easy to like.

M: Light with appropriate carbonation. Clean finish.

O: A good beer and a good representation of the style. Easy drinker.

This was one of the local beers offered at Cru which is a really good restaurant in Charleston.

Poured into a strange, the beer is a slightly cloudy light yellow with a bone white head.

It has a nice aroma of grains, flowers and bit of botanicals.

The beer leads with some semisweet malts, a bit of pear and apple and then some floral elements. The beer is delicate and for me hits the style notes.

The mouth is crisp with good carbonation.

I liked this beer and think it would be easy to pair with oysters, bisque, or chicken salad.

Finally was able to find this one during a trip to the Upstate last weekend. Bottled on 12/21/11. Poured into a stemmed lager glass.

Pours a slightly-hazy pale gold with a lusciously thick bone-white head. Great retention. Sticky sip rings cling to the glass. The nose is sharp with grassy notes, lemon-lime, floral hops. Body is effervescent and lively. Sweet citrus flavors join arms with a subtle green hop twang that is lip-smackingly good. This beer errs on the mild side, but it is packed full of flavor regardless. Refreshing and tasty. Loved this one.

Poured into my COAST pint glass.

A - Clear, glowing gold with a nice white head that dissipates to a thin ring around the glass.
S - Sweet pale malt and earthy noble hops, with a "toasted" aroma. Very clean.
T - More sweet biscuit malt with grassy, earthy hops. There's a slight buttery apple flavor, and some nice bitterness in the finish.
M - Light bodied with crisp, sharp carbonation.
D - Excellent drinkability, this is about as good as it gets for a sessionable "Lawnmower" beer.

Another top-notch brew from Jamie and David!
