16oz can poured into a lager pint glass
(A)- Pours a hazy gold color. Some good white froth with good retention and lacing
(S)- Bright biscuit and cereal grains meets some dusty honey sweetness with a slight hint of orange and lemon peel
(T)- Some nice bright floral hop and citrus bits met with some biscuit-like grains. Faint sweetness on the finish
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Dry bittering hops meets subtle citrus and grains. Faint sweetness helps bring this around
(O)- One of the better Kolsch style beers I have had in awhile. LIght, but flavorful and balanced well

A good Kolsch even if its a little on the malty side. Super tasty though.
