A solid beer. Golden hue with a plsner like consistency. More flavorful than other beers of this style that I have tried, it has a nice hoppy bite at the end reminiscent of pilsner urquell. Overall a good beer for a hot summer afternoon.

On tap at the brewery. Pours light golden colored, clear, with a fluffy white head on top. Aroma of light fruits, light hay, some pale German malts. Flavor follows with a bit of a fruity pineappley taste, some hay, and a finish reminiscent of other Kolsch beers: a bit dirty. Very light bodied and refreshing with medium carbonation. For a style in not usually a huge fan of, this came across pretty solid.

Pours a clear gold with thin soapy white head, settles to a thin ring, a few dots of lace down the glass. Smell: white grape with some unripe peach, lemon, lightly doughy. Taste: mildly sweet and grapey cut by saltine and lemon note, peach skin, clean mild bitterness. Definitely a nice summer / outdoor beer that I thoroughly enjoyed... but don't expect it to punch you in the nose or be highly hopped for the style (based on the advertising of the dry hopping)... luckily they had me at knee boarding and Kolsch.
