Pours pure gold with half an inch of loose, soap-like, bubbly head that has decent retention. The nose is faint and musty with some grassy aromas. The tasty is musty with a great deal of grassy hop character. The mouthfeel is light and crisp with a good amount of carbonation.

Kolsch is not my favorite style, but this is a damn fine beer. The hop character is great, and it drinks well.

12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint. Slightly hazy gold with a modestly sized white head that sticks around for a while. Lazy streaks of lacing.

Floral hop notes among a mix of malty aromas both crisp and lightly sweet- dough, sugar cookies, toasted flatbread. Shockingly flavorful; this is pretty delicious stuff. Floral hops take a backseat to stronger grassy and herbal flavors. Nice yeasty tang. Husky at times. Plenty bitter thru midswallow, but the finish is dry and features lingering grass and grains.

Overall impression: A great brew. I gotta get some more of this pronto.

A wonderfully refreshing beer. Aromas of grass and straw. Just enough hoppy bitterness to give it character and mouthfeel. Finishes with a pleasant white grape like taste. This one is a keeper.

Growler - Overall, a very solid beer. Light and refreshing...a great summer beer. A nice floral aroma and taste with a nice malty backbone as one would expect from the style. The beer was very easy to drink...not sure how they could really improve on this beer.

A- Pretty much clear golden, slightly lighter than honey. Head is thin one finger that lasts not quite long enough.
S- Aroma is reminiscent of apple peel, a touch floral (actually not altogether different than Easter lillies I smelt today), and a bit of crackery malt.
T- Initially I'm picking up some doughy and crackery malt, with just a touch of sweetness in it. There is a bit of slightly tart apple flavor in there. Just a touch grassy.
M- Light, but you expect that from the style, pretty even-keeled carbonation, perhaps a touch prickly. Clean finish.
O- Right near the top of the list of kolschs. Definite recomendation for a sessionable beer high on flavor.

Pours a hazy straw color with off white head. Visible carbonation slows after the initial rush. Lace is wet but persistent. Nose is crystal malt and spicy hops with a grapeskin vibe.

Full bodied flavor with biscuit notes that matures into a noble hop finish and a clean aftertaste. Carbonation is a little high in my eyes but I realize that is being true to the style. A lot to like here, overall. Not a thin yellow lager, this has complexity and drinkability, and certainly qualifies as refreshing as well. i'm not sure i'd drink it mowing the lawn but certainly after.

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.

It pours a light golden blonde like a morning sunrise pushing through the hazy morning dew. An inviting aroma of toasted wheat bread gently reminds me I picked the perfect beer. Light in taste with a slight sweet hop spice perfectly placed at the end each sip. Inoffensive in every way possible. Kinder than a Michelob Ultra but made to be enjoyed rather than profited from.
