I was surprised by this one. I had it straight out of a can and even then it was very fragrant - straight up biscuit. I actually got it poured into a pint glass the next time and I swear it was not as fragrant that way. Weird. But now I go straight out of the can every time.

It was really enjoyable and had a nice tang to it. It has a sort of sour biscuit dough thing going on. It makes you want to keep taking another sip and another. I end up finishing them really quickly.

It's not going to beat out some complex stout but as a session beer it's a real winner. I could drink a dozen of these. I didn't think it was as insubstantial as some here have said. I didn't expect to think much of it but did. Really nice flavor. This has become the go-to session beer for my friends and me. Makes me want to try other kolsches.

Jon Boat from Intuition Ale Works 4.5% alcohol... poured into a pint glass.

A- Yellow straw colored fluid with mild carbonated head that drops to a light froth.

S- Sweet corn and dextrin upfront with a light scent of floral hops and tangy yeast.

T-M- Lemon like hops upfront with the rundown of tight bitter floral bite. Average mill of ale malts sweeten this beer to a so so taste. Mild yeast/ dextrin flavor on the afterbite. Watery and lightly astringent finish makes this the hit or miss... mostly a miss.

Good but no cigar for drinkablity...

Smooth taste, very easy to drink. Nothing special but nothing negative.

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

A- pours a clear golden-straw color with a fizzy white head that reduces to leave just a bit of head floating on top

S- crisp grainy malt, straw, slightly sweet and earthy with some faint herbal hop

T- sweet wheaty malt and a but yeasty, the finish is crisp and bone dry with a hint of grass/citrus linger

M- light and thin body with medium carbonation, slightly fizzy mouthfeel with a slick finish

O- not a bad choice for a hot summer day, very light on the palate and mouthfeel. It serves its purpose, but isn't a choice if you're looking for a boat load of flavor.

I really like the color of this exceptionally bright colored Kolsch. The color was golden but incredibly Crystal clear with a vastly thin quickly fleeting head. It resembled a white wine in some respects.

The scent was bready, crackery and slightly sweet but very, very light.

The taste was also bready, almost doughy, with a touch of hops at the end.

This had the potential to be a very good hot weather beer but it feels very sharp in the swallow, almost prickly.

Look: clear honey. White head with loads of messy lacing.
Smell: light bready nose. Not much depth though nice enough.
Taste: light bready like the nose. Easy drinker.
