A: A nice light straw settles into a milky light golden burnish. What little head was gone in a few seconds.

S: Sweet honey of malt dominates over subtle sulfuric notes of apple and pear. Honey thistles.

M: Generally smooth and soft on palate. Dryness and crispness tends to be more apparent on some swaths more than others. Not consistent nor as refreshing as hoped. with a lower carbonation level.

T: Sweet wheat right off the bat, approaching that of Coors too much. Virtually no Noble hops flavor. Slight sulfuric and mineral tones set it apart from Coors, and let's me know I'm drinking a 'craft' beer. Better examples exist. Not recommended, too sweet.

Had this out of a flute glass at the American Tap Room in Arlington, VA during the USA/Ghana World Cup match. Definitely hit the spot on a 90-plus degree day. Smooth and easy to drink, the flute glass emptied far quicker than I expected. Not very complex, but what it tries to do it does very effectively.

A: Pours a clear gold with a mountainous white head that takes forever to settle.

S: Aromas of minerals, straw, biscuits, grass, grain, green apple, and pear are very noticeable on the nose.

T: Notes of minerals, grain, honey, biscuits, straw, herbs, grass, green apple, and pear are presented on the palate. The finish is typically clipped and fruity with noticeable grain, mineral, straw, grass, apple, and pear flavors.

M: Full in body and dry. Carbonation is crisp, yet slightly airy. A filling, yet endlessly quaffable ale.

O: A superb, authentically styled kolschbier. This one really nails the character of some of the German classics.
