A: straw yellow/bubbly/shiny, small alabaster head,
pleasing lacing display

Will get again; this style is PERFECT for Summer.

DELICIOUS, TREAT YOURSELF!

A: Pours a crystal clear pale straw yellow with light amounts of visible carbonation. There is a finger tall white foamy head which dissipates quickly leaving about a quarter of a finger tall layer of bubbles (not as thick as the original head). Light lacing is observed.

S: Aromas of sweet & pale malts with some grassy hints. More complex than I expected. Also some faint hints of apple and pear.

T: Very refreshing, well balanced with subtle complexity. Flavors are sweet and pale malts up front followed by some apple and pear and finishes with grassy hints.

M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very good example of the style and a very enjoyable, very sessionable beer. Brings back memories of visits to the northern parts of Germany on a warm fall afternoon.

Poured into a pils glass.

3.5 A: Clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is good, but not much in the lacing department.

4.5 S: Sweet and grassy, but the sweetness has surprising depth. Indeed, this is surprisingly complex while being simple. It's hard to explain so I'll just say that this smells great.

4.5 T: Taste is much like the nose. Super clean with a grassy sweetness that is powerful, yet elegant.

3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Carbonation is a tad low for the style, but still reasonable. Could use a bit more creaminess though.

4.0 D: This is probably the best tasting kolsch I've ever had. This truly is a great style that seemingly always gets overlooked.
