On tapat brewpub (from memory):
Ok, had this numerous times but finally got into it, then company showed up.

This beer looked amazing, a lightly hazed yellow-leaning golden body. Constant streams of bubbles fed at least a finger of stark white cap almost the whole Pilsner glass.

Nose foretold the taste, with a sturdy crusty bread note where the yeast wasn't strong at all. A somewhat fresh herbal more than grassy scent played off this.

As mentioned, taste was similar, with malt and hops playing well together. A grain aspect to the light bread opening yields a bit to the herbal notes, which are decently bitter without killing my palate. Fairly clean in the ending, there's another twist with a little malt sweet revival that also brings a hint of bread in numerous sips.

Another case of a solid, pretty much to style offering.

3.71/5: A straightforward yet deliciously balanced kellerbier/kolsch hybrid; even slightly complex

On tap, pours a clear lemon gold. Very nicely dense white head sticks around. Smell is grassy, tart citrus and some bready notes. Taste is the same. Feel is medium minus. Overall, a crisp, refreshing beer, well made and tasty.

Bought in a growler.

It's the lightest shade of yellow. Nearly white. See thru - in fact I can watch the blues/hawks game 7 thru it. Little to no head, but what there is stays around in the form of lacing.

Smells of earthy grains, bread, maybe a corn muffin, pear and lemon peel.

Nice soft malt flavor, super refreshing. Nice crisp middle layer and a bit of a tart finish. Very smooth, light but no lacking in flavors.

Refreshing is worth echoing. find a warm day, pleasant yard, and purchase.

Beer has a great white head that takes a while to dissipate. Beer itself is a clear pale gold. Very nice and crispy looking.

Beer smell and taste has a nice yeast note to it. Hop bitterness is strong but not overpowering giving get it a nice bitter resin note.

Feel is light but slightly heavy and light body. Refreshing but dry at the end.

Overall, good.
