Appearance: Pours a completely clear, medium golden color with a strong white head. SRM of 7. (4.00)

Aroma: Mild aromas of pale malts, light bread malts, some yeast and metallic or dry soda bread notes. A clean, grainy finish. (3.75)

Flavor: Mild flavors of dry pale malts. Some yeast in the middle, dry soda bread, but very clean and simple. (3.75)

Feel: Medium to light bodied. Light bread malts linger. Clean. (4.00)

Compared to Waconia Carver County Kolsch 5/5/22: Pours a lighter color. Milder aromas. More dry grains. Less creamy notes. Lighter and cleaner.

Overall: A good, clean Kolsch here. Flavors are mild and subtle. Yeast and soda bread, mild metallic notes. Sort of reminds me of the Guinness Harp Lager, but more yeasty and carbonated. Very drinkable, dry, and refreshing for a warm weather day. (Rating: 3.84+)

Poured into a PBG Sparkles mug. Pale, clear yellow with a thick head and lots of bubbles. This tastes like how imagined beer would taste as a kid, seeing it in movies and commercials. It's sweet, bready, slightly fruity in the finish, and more refreshing than an oasis in the desert. In a just world, this crisp, mild brew would be the go-to beer on tap the world over. I look forward to knocking back a few of these in the summer. Just wish it was cheaper - I'll have to move to Germany, I guess.

Clear pour from can. Head is thin but has staying power. Nose is currently pungent with a bit of citrus, slightly. Lacing as nice as well. Very good German beer as expected

Just below average body with about medium carbonation that seemed to dissipate quickly
Incredibly clear gold orange appearance.
Aroma is malt,grain,cereal,bread, with some floral fruit,mostly pear.
Taste for the most part doesn't stray too far from the aroma. Leaves a pear sweetness but definitely a little bitter peel in the aftertaste.
Nice beer that went well with food without overpowering it

Crisp, perfect for summer. One of only 3 [4?] genuine Kolsch brews.

I haven't had many of this style but I thought was excellent beer flavored beer lol. I think its a great example of the style and pairs well with any food.

Drank straight from the can, so we're really not sure what it looks like. From what we can tell, its a clear golden.

Smells like beer, tastes like beer. If there was a textbook definition of beer, this is it. It is just beer, but it is good beer. Wish it was easier to get in NH because it would be an easy subsitute for other mass-produced beers. There is really no better way to describe than "beer".

Tastes first of grain and malt then there is a pear-light fruit sweetness mingled with pale malts. It has a nice fruity finish that cleans up quickly and a refreshing light mouthfeel.
