3.35/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

(A) Clear yellow body with minimal head, little to no lacing or retention
(S) Pils malt, mostly clean with some lingering corn or DMS subdued behind the malt. Hop aroma was low to none
(T) Pils malt flavor for the most part, bittering is present but in the back seat. The finish shows off the corn that was in the aroma.
(M) Moderate carbonation, no astringency, smooth and pleasant

OVERALL: A good drinking beer that will pair nicely with most foods. It's also a great entry-beer for those not too familiar with various craft styles.

The beer presents itself more as a Blonde than a Kolsch but it's very close. To me the big issue that needs some attention is the Corn Aroma and Flavor, or DMS. I'm guessing there isn't maize in the grist since this would be inappropriate for a Kolsch, so it's probably DMS that's not coming out in the boil. Once corrected, this would probably shift the balance slight in a more favorable direction. If not, some additional nobel hop would be a plus.

NOTE: Heard this was a second batch with a slight adjustment in grain, so the recipe is in flux which is to be expected for a new establishment. I'm sure they will drive continuous improvement.

Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light grainy malt and herbal hop.

The taste offered a vleant crockery pils mSlt character with a soft noble hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall tasty and quaffable.

As far as renditions of the style a stellar example. Light tart fruitiness carries over to palate: apple and pear. Honey biscuity, moderate sweetness, but generally well balanced. Brilliant gold in color. Crisp, refreshing. An everyday beer.
