11.2oz bottle poured into a stange.

A: Clear straw golden color. Two fingers of rocky white head retain well in the narrow glass. Lacing clings to the glass in coarse clumps.

S: Grain, touch of dough, and cracker. Delicate, vague fruitiness. Hay. Soft grassy hopping with just a hint of leafy herbs. Very clean.

T: Lightly toasted grains, cracker, and biscuit. Hops are grassy and show more of a spicy herbal edge than the nose suggested. Hint of grape skin fruitiness. Very clean. Grain and herbal hop in the quick dry finish.

M: Light bodied. Aggressive and sharp scrubbing carbonation. Soft creamy texture.

O: This is the measuring stick by which all other Kolsch beers should be judged. Flawlessly brewed.

Standard nice kolsch. Some sweetness in the grain bill so it's not to dry in the finish.

On tap at The Owl House in Rochester, NY.

Pours a clear golden yellow, with a quarter inch fizzy head, and a little bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells slightly grassy, a bit of hay, and some indistinct sweet fruitiness.

The taste is similar. Slightly bready, with a touch of fruity yeast flavors, some light green apple, some grassy hops, and a slight metallic kick.

Light bodied, crisp, clean lager mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

This is a classic Kolsch, and required drinking for anybody interested in the style.

500 ml bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Clear golden straw body, with some very active carbonation. Bubbly white head. Poor retention, but still looks decent.

S- Pale malt, a bit of staleness. A bit of a fruity nose as well.

T- Crisp malt, not stale one bit, a bit of a fruity tang.

M- Light body. Only a little drying. Pretty clean.

O- Good, clean, and crisp.

On tap at the 2013 Atlanta German Bierfest

Clear light gold with plenty of rising carbonation bubbles. Topped by a proportionate and very durable head.
Appealing but very light aroma with hops and light malt in balance. More hop presence in tasting.
Light body with medium carbonation.

O: Good representative of this very mild style beer.
