Served on tap in a 16 oz conical pint glass at the Intuition Brew Pub in Jacksonville, FL (November 18, 2011). Cheers to Brent for suggesting the place.

Eyes: Pours a pale golden straw color with good clarity. The near white head is moderate, as is the lacing, which are both typical for the style.

Nose: A weak albeit clean aroma, light bread with a touch of grass. Some mild fruit also (apple?).

Tongue: Another area that's a bit mild, but very good. Not particularly crisp for the style, but the malty & wheat character combine with the aforementioned fruit. Some apple and pear evident.

Mouth: An appropriately carbonated profile with a crisp, dry finish. Light-bodied.

Libation: I asked the bartender, but she wasn't aware of the ABV, but I'll guess it's somewhere around 5 and 6 percent, as it wasn't boozy at all. Although this is quite mild, it's exactly that feature which makes this such a quality brew. Very light and drinkable, but not compromising on taste.

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.

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.

Very crisp beer, nice carbonation, very low hop presence with a sweet aftertaste. Nice brew for the summer.

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.

Pours a clear medium gold with moderate persistent lacing.
Smell is a light sweet malt with a hint of herbal hop.
Taste is grassy with a mild lemon finish.
