A - poured to a pilsner glass. Three finger head, slow to recede. Golden straw in color and clear as can be. Really nice bubbling

S - an interesting Belgian yeast nose. Somewhat inviting but mild bubblegum lingers

T - not off putting in the least, but it makes no statement. It really asks for more flavor. Almost a beer flavored water

M - unlike the bubbly appearance, this beer lacks carbonation. The mouthfeel also makes no statement. Flat, watery

O - It would be nice and refreshing for someone on a hot day. This beer has it's place, just not with me.

16 oz. can poured into a Boneyard taster.

Appearance - Clear yellow body. Nice white head. Great retention. Sticky lacing.

Smell - Not much aroma, but a dynamic malt and hop aroma. Nutty, grainy, earthy hops, slightly sharp. Muted, but good.

Taste - Sharp hop flavor. Malts get nuttier as it warms. Finishes with a touch of bitterness and a slight sharpness.

Mouthfeel - Easy drinking, but very light. Not much body.

Overall - Decent. Interesting malt flavors.

Can from the Brew Shop in Bend. Pale golden with abundant foamy head. Aroma is mostly grains, cereal, taste is pure grain, malt, some hops present in the finish, very dry and chalky. A decent representation of the German original. Light in body and palate, refreshing

Clear light straw. Pineapple tropical fruit and wheat on the nose. Sweet grain, straw and a touch of lime on the taste. Steel mineral with a syrup swryness lingers on the finish. The sweetness lingers a bit too long on the tongue. I prefer a sharper finish to my kolsch; just too sweet for my taste.
