on tap at the mercury café down on California. the pour on this organic golden ale is a pale yellow, almost wheat beer color, but appears a bit more clear, although not perfectly so. smallish white head without much retention. smells of bright fruity ale yeast and german pale malts combine to make this a potentially very refreshing brew. the flavor is a little bigger than most classic kolsch style beers, with the grains really standing out. its summer vibe with the floral hop finish and the delicate fruit esters throughout. the body is also a little bigger than the standard for the style, which really helps it in this instance. I has a super rare lamb chop with chive butter, and the extra body made it stand up well. a less kolsch would have been overpowered by the intensity of my meal, but this one worked. a little dreary on the carbonation, but overall a solid Americanized version of a style that doesn't usually do much for me.

Pours an orange amber with gold tones and a nice white head.

Nose is a light coffee and sweet malt.

Mouthfeel is medium but with a fresh and bright character. Leaves you wanting more.

Flavors are light coffee, light toast with some sweet malt undertones. Flavor profile is fresh and bright with an almost citric quality that's very inviting.

Finish is light bitter coffee and lots of nice honey character. A pleasing amber ale that is light in overall character and a bit more simple than it sounds. As stated, a nice session beer.

My first Kolsh styled beer so I have nothing to compare it to and so I don't have a basis to know if what to look for from a "good" kolsh. For whatever its worth I did like this one a good deal.

Yellow/Golden with a nice thumbs width white head. Solid lacing to this thing. Smells of some toasty malts with some earthiness and a mild hops. Flavor starts introduces itself with a hit of malty sweetness that as soon as it introduces itself transitions into some earthiness and then closes out with some hops. Very little bitterness to this one. The sweet malt component offered an additional flavor to it and its killing me that I cant identify but I really liked a lot (maybe wheat?). A crisp and lively mouthfeel. Lighter in body and carbonated. They aren't lying when they say this is a great session beer, it really is and I definitely liked this one. Wish it were bottled so I could pick up a sixer of this and give this one another shot, might help me figure out how my opinion of it would stand up to a second round of evaluating.
