22oz : tulip

Clear, golden-yellow with a thin, foamy white head.

Wow, some serious lime upfront in the nose, followed by some grassy notes and crackery malts.

The palate follows the nose, lime zest upfront with the base beer quite clear in the backing with grassy hops and a prominent, crackery malt base.

Medium bodied, foamy carbonation.

An interesting beer, plenty of lime. Enjoyable, though I don't really have a strong urge to have it again.

22oz. bottle.
Very hazy amber; Decent off-white head

Wonderful smell mixes lime with fresh baked bread.

The flavor is much less balanced, with the lime components dominating. Good sweet/bitter/sour balance, with all three present at near equal levels.

Refreshing. Light body with appropriate medium carbonation.

Poured from a 650ml bottle. Pours a slightly orangish yellow colour. A unique nose with herbaceous scents of funk, grass and citrus. Definitely reflects the ingredients list. Taste is similar with a big hit of tart lime. Spicy notes show up on the pleasantly dry finish. Any kolsch characteristics are pretty much obliterated by the lime and herb notes, but that's probably the point. This is fruity, light and refreshing.

22oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem. $4.99 Pours a hazy bright yellow with a large frothy and thick white head. Aromas of creamy lemon,lime zest and honey malts nice enough MMmm very refreshing first beer of the week and its zesty,salty,honey and crisp,dry pilsner finish nice stuff!! Good palate it is not too thin yet goes down a treat. Very nice refreshing summer beer. I was unsure so held off all summer but this is nice.

Served from the bottle into a pilsner glass

A- Poured a clear pale golden color with tons of streaming carbonation, soapy bright white head that left some spotty lace.

S- Very light aroma of lime and grassy notes.

T- Slightly acidic lime flavor and mint is most prominent, some grassy and fruity notes. Not much in the way of traditional Kolsch flavors, the Kolsch seems to serve as a blank template for the lime and herb additions.

M- Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, and pretty watery.

O- Not much complexity and definitely a lighter beer. It drinks like a really easy and nice craft alternative to Corona.

Pours a very light yellow with a foamy head. Smell isn't great. Smells like a Pilsner for sure. Taste is very light with a hint of lime. Nothing overpowering here. Feel like I should have cut the grass before drinking this. Ok. Won't seek it out again.

Wife's Review: "I like it. It is refreshing and the lime flavor is just right."

What we all wish a Corona with a lime would taste like. Good easy drinking seasonal had in bottle and on draft.
