look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance 3.5: Poured out a light golden, like so many well-known lagers. Nice, creamy head popped up and lasted the entire session. Nice lacing.

Smell 3.75: Nice nose on this brew. I smell the ol' lagery basics: grains, some adjunt hints, low hop profile.

Taste 3.50: Front is smooth and refreshingly dry. Middle is where some pleasant flavor of grains and noble hops come in. Finish is crisp and refreshing with more of an emphasis on the light grains. Aftertaste is where the familiar lager flavor-profiles come forward.

Mouthfeel 3.50: This beer is light in the mouth and as a result is very refreshing. Spot on for the style.

Overall 3.50: Very good, standard lager. I mean, kolsch. Anyway, it is certainly nothing phenomenal, but is a good, serviceable representative of the style. Here recently I've run into beers that are way, way outside the flavor profiles, standard appearance, etc., of the style (see my Magic Hat reviews). This leads to clashing tastes and just an appearance of jackassery on the part of the brewers. The folks at Terrapin really nailed this one; this is a good representative of a high-quality, craft-brewed kolsch.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served up a translucent, medium yellow-hued body with a very slim, powder white head. Good lacing.

Smell: A bit weak in the aromatics department, with just light notes of pale malted grain, sweetish cereal hints, and a little accent of spicy-minded hops.

Taste: Slender pale maltiness, a little hint of wheat and an overall cereal sweetness. Never more than a very faint fruitiness. Minor spiciness contributed by the hops, its soft bitterness is accentuated by the carbonation. Near dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's a decent American-born Kolsch.

A: A nice transparent gold color, had almost no head at the top, but did leave some nice lacing around the glass.

S: A nice fresh scent to this one, I smelled a bit of tropical fruit some malts, and a slight hint of fresh hops.

T: A nice taste, almost just like the nose, a bit of wheat taste up front and a little bitter, a nice balance.

M: Midly carbonated, a good balance to this one, smooth.

O: A nice beer very mild, a crisp, a good summer brew, This brew was pleasant and good flavor to it.
