The beer looks exactly as it's supposed to. It's not a Kolsch. It's a golden ale. If you didn't figure that out, you were already in for the wrong ride. This beer really opens up and its floral, has a great softness due to the water they use, and it has a slight sweetness and bitterness thats perfectly balanced. Overall a great beer for session or whatever. Perfect for all seasons.

Good look and solid smell. Goes down smooth with a great taste. While good, my expectations were a little higher before I tried it.

I have had this beer in a bottle, on tap and have also picked up a few growlers from the brewery. It's a very enjoyable beer. It's light but not too light.

A: Golden with white, creamy head
T: Very smooth. Easy to drink.
M: Silky, smooth finish.

I really like this beer. Perfect beer to enjoy outside.

Draft at Buffalo Wild Wings in Germantown, TN. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. You never know what to expect from a golden ale bit this was a very good beer. This would be a staple in my refrigerator if I had access to it.
