Pours a pale golden. Very bright. Some white wine aroma. It tastes like buttered bread. Not in a diacetyl-y way. Just that delicious buttered bread you eat way too much of before the nice meal you paid for.

L: Clear gold with a creamy white head. Moderate retention, excellent lacing.

S: Toasted white bread and biscuits with honey, sweet red apple, grass, lager-like crispness and cleanness.

T: Toasted white bread drizzled with honey upfront, followed by a very light grassy bitterness, a big sweet red apple note, and a crisp, clean finish.

F: Surprisingly medium-bodied, well rounded and filling with ample carbonation.

O: My first experience with a kolsch, and I enjoy it.

Always up for a Kolsch.

This one pours a clear pale yellow with a strong and lasting nearly pure white froth. Has a subtle aroma of dry straw, grain and lemon zest. Tastes of faint orange and lemon mixed with grain and faint hops. Has a soft and mellow core and finishes of dry and crisp.

The real deal.

L - yellow, clear; nice solid white head that dissipates quickly
S & T - grassy hops, light grains, slightly metallic
F - thin, lively carbo, easily sessionable

O - decent enough sessionable light beer, but I found the metallic taste slightly offputting. Preferred the Muhlen Kolsch myself.
