Pours out to a nice permanent white head and golden clear. Aroma is clean and grainy but hardly resembling the fruity, vinous note of Kolsch. Flavor is a mix of Michelob original and a splash of witbier. Feels awesome. Decent quencher. Misses the style mark. But then again, I'm at Pappadeaux at IAH and the air in here is reeking of seafood gumbo. Don't give up on Karbach. Try for yourself.

I don't think this is a seasonal anymore, as my batch was brewed on October 11, stamped on the bottom of the can. Gave this a chance after trying another of their beers.

OK, poured clear with a wheat colored hue, moderate head that dissipated quickly. Mild aroma that hints at a bit of sharp acidity. Clean flavor, a bit of bitterness that fades quickly. Nothing that really stands out, but it seems to be equal parts pale ale, wheat beer and IPA, so no real character of its own. Sharp pop on the tongue, but not distracting. A quality beer, good to have, but nothing outstanding.

You can throw quite a few of these back in the summer, and it's better than an adjunct. That's pretty much all I can say about it. Oh, and chicks dig it.

Single 12 ounce can that was purchased in Dallas and consumed at home, on to the beer:

This middle of the pack kolsch is light yellow colored and topped with a head that leaves a little lacing around. It's a little more cider-like per style, but still with a modest note of hay in the back. Being light and gently carbonated, it's a solid beer with the main goal of hydration, and quick.
