Crushing a 6er on a covered patio at my air b&b in Austin. Near perfect.

On tap at Cottonwood in Houston.

A: Pours a clear golden/orange color. A two finger pillowing white head forms with good retention. Nice lace is left behind as well.
S: Bread and biscuit like malts. Just a bit of dry, peppery spice and bitterness in the finish. Simple, but really nice.
T: Follows the nose. Mineral like yeast, bread and biscuit. Just a touch of hops. I am thinking Saaz hops. Very clean with spicy, grassy flavors. Very nice and simple.
M/D: A light to medium body. Very crisp, dry and superbly clean. There is not much to this, and that is the point. Very easy to drink, without thinking about it. One of my go to's during the summer.

Spot on for the style, in America that is. Simple, really enjoyable, and the definition of moerish. I love this style, and I highly recommend this one if looking for a local option in Houston.

12 oz can poured into pint glass.

A - Pours a hazy yellow straw color with one finger of white head.

S - The aroma has grassy and grainy notes with a bit of citrus hops.

T - The grain is prominent in this, followed by grassy hops and some lemon. The taste is very clean with a slightly peppery end.

M - Light body with high carbonation. It's very crisp and refreshing, making for a great summer session beer. Citrus and grass on the aftertaste.

O - A great beer for summer with a refreshing hop profile.

This happens to be one of my favorites from Karbach, it's no longer a "summer seasonal" and is now one of their year round beers so that's a plus.

Appearance: pours as a light blonde/golden clear color, there's not much of a head so there's no real lacing.

Smell: kind of floral, but definitively not overpowering, however I just wish the hints of citrus would shine through a little more than it does, simply because I love that smell. Otherwise ot's fresh and clean.

Taste/Feel: pretty much your standard Kolsch, the hops and malt come out nicely. What can I say it goes down smooth, the carbonation is highly prevalent, but it's light and clean and finishes without much bitterness.

Overall: It's a great beer and it's easy to see why it's one of my favorites by Karbach and why they put this in their permanent year round brews. My only criticism is that because I've gotten it countless times at the brewery (sometimes hours old) drinking it from a can that I picked up at the grocery store takes a tiny bit of the freshness away. However, it's not enough to really put a dent in how it tastes. It's still solid and well worth drinking anywhere; at the brewery, in restaurants or on your back porch. So if you can find it locally or trade for it, I recommend it!

If you're ever in Houston, Texas make one of your brewer stops the Karbach Brewery!
