A: brilliant clarity, light yellow with little head to speak of. Carbonation streaming off of the bottom. Little lacing to be found

S: slight apple skin to tart lemon, floral, very very light malt smell

T: tart and citric at first, grassy noble hops give it a nice bitterness. There is a sturdy bready malt backbone if you search for it

M: really dry and carbonated, nicely done to style

Poured on tap at Mad Fox Brewing Company into a large pilsner glass.

A great shiny crystal clear body of brass yellow with small rising carbonation. A slight tiny bubbled white head is presented but falls slowly and eventually. Collar is maintained and kept throughout drinking.

Nose is kind of small and muted, very tiny all I get off or this is a light malt.

Taste is quite impressive. A very tight and sharp palate sensation and feel of incredibly crisp hop and malt. Slight bread off the swallow, but also very vinous and grape like tasting. Very tight hop bitter in the finish almost borderline lime astringent. Palate really jumps around with very lively carbonation.

Overall extremely refreshing with a varied and interesting palate. I just wish this beer had some degree of bouquet on it. I am still in the search for my ultimate Kolsch, the quest continues in earnest.

A great example of the style.

The smell is slight fruit from the hops and just a nice crispness to it.

The taste was great, overall clean and refreshing. Nice one sided malt backbone and a good bitterness to it. Reminded me a lot of Sierra Nevada Summerfest.

I think this with the low ABV will be my go to beer whenever I'm here.
