This kolsch pours a medium golden color with a thin, frothy, white head. The smell is quite nice with yeast and grain notes that are prominent. The flavor is like the smell would have you believe with the aforementioned flavors as well as an earthiness coming to the forefront. The aftertaste leaves a grainy flavor in your mouth that is accompanied by an assertive, but not overwhelming hoppiness that is somewhat high for the style. The finish is quite dry and the body is medium to light, which is still a little higher than most examples of this style. In my opinion this style is not the most exciting or inventive one, but this beer is a little bit atypical. To me that makes it somewhat intriguing. Like all good kolschs it does have a nice refreshing taste though and is great in the summer. It’s not the best example of the style that I’ve had, though I have not had many that are better and it is certainly worth a try.

I get a subtle hop aroma and a nice dry taste.
I get great sweet biscuit and honeydew flavors from the yeast
thin mouthfeel that is crisp and smooth
very drinkable! this is one of my favorite styles

Pours a darker yellow colour. Smells malty and slightly sweet, dark-grain smell to it. Tastes clean and crisp, not much to it, light malt taste, bitterness throughout. Very typical Kölsch.

Creamy 1 finger head pale yellow

Nice lemonesque tartness and clean maltiness, no real hops in the nose

Pleasant 2 row pale malt followed by a mild citrus and wheaty tartness

Clean and a tad dry but only subtly

Not the perfect beer for all occasions but absolutely perfect for what it is. Clean, zesty, and light but flavorful I can honestly say I wouldn't change a thing about this beer
