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.

I tried this for the second time at Mitchell's Fish House. It poured a clear copper with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent was more or less standard. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it decent.

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.
