Look - pale yellow with practically no head but some spotty lacing after the first few sips.
Smell - earthy grains, grapes, and some light bread.
Taste - on point for the style with its earthy, malty, and grape notes.
Feel - medium carbonation, light body, and finishes very crisp and dry.

Bright straw yellow color, thin white head. Light body with a hint of hoppiness but not certainly overpowering. Maybe some herbal notes. Dry finish. Great lunch beer, nice counterbalance to spicy food.

Appearance- The beer poured a very pale yellow color with a white head. Little lacing was left behind.

Smell - The had a pleasant combination of light citrus and malts.

Taste - At first there was a pleasant lime note, before crisp dry wheat. Grass notes are also present with hidden notes of dry red grapes toward the finish. This is such an easy drinker.

Mouthfeel- The malts coat the mouth like glue.

Overall- For the style, this hits all the marks.

12 oz bottle, drank straight from it, while staying at The O'Neil in Kinston, NC. I enjoyed it, but I guess I was hoping for a bit more lighter, crisp refreshing-ness on this one. Definitely need to try again.

L - Pours crystal clear, straw gold, with a quarter inch of head that quickly disappears leaving behind a rim of bubbles.
S - Some malty sweetness with a little bread/ biscuit. Slightly, fruity.
T - Malty and fruity. Slightly bitter finish.
F - light to medium body. Crisp.
O - One of my favorite light beers. Somehow today - when I am finally reviewing - it seems less flavorful than I recall. Still impressive how good this beer is in the age of double dry hopped, fruited, barrel aged everything.

Endless River has a very thick, white head, a hazy, golden-straw appearance, and lots of heavy lacing splotches left behind. The aroma is of pungent, spicy hops and pale barley malt. Taste is of sweet, biscuit malt, soda cracker, and bold, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is low-medium, and Endless River finishes crisp and highly drinkable. RJT

Nice pale gold with a quickly fading white head. The smell is grainy and bright with perhaps s bit of lemon. The taste is pleasantly sweet with a lemon and wheat taste with a really nice bitter finish. This is a fine beer that is well balanced.

Have had it both from tap and from a bottle. If buying from a bottle it needs to be poured into a glass, do not drink from the bottle. Crisp kolsch that lives up to the style well. Easy all day drinker that paired well with west NC barbque. Would buy this again.
