Enjoyed this at the brewery with some excellent food. Poured a clear, light-golden with a small, foamy white-head.

The aroma was very clean and refreshing as one would expect - our pretty waitress stated the keg had just been tapped.

This is a delicate style and one you can truly appreciate when fresh. Sweet, cracker-like flavors intermingle with a subtle and refreshing hoppiness. The crisp finish is very inviting; almost lager-like but better.

Light bodied with a sweet, refreshing mouthfeel, the ale is delightful from start to finish.

Nothing like a pint of fresh kolsch right from the source. One of my favorites of this style but, then again, I have rarely had this style on tap.

Aroma: Lots of pils malt, which puts this out of style. Yeast smells of pears. Mild European hop aroma. The excessive pils malt and yeasty pear leads me to wonder about the age and/or light exposure of this bottle.

Appearance: Light gold. Mild cloudiness, not much of an authentic Kolsch. Head is pale white and dissolves rather quickly. Some foam remains around the edges. Mild lacing.

Taste: Lots of wheat, which I didn't catch in the aroma. Bittersweet fruit, pear and I'm actually tasting lime, again with the my concern with the light exposure or age. Mild European hops. Some pils and pale malt.

Mouthfeel: Light body. Finishes dry. Moderate to high attenuation. Mild to medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice flavor, although a bit on the tart side. I'll spare a bit of criticism in case this bottle is old. A born on date would have helped out. Nonetheless, this brew is certainly out of style with the high pilsner content/taste.

Notes: Drank on 3/20/2012.

A: Lemon-brass color with a very slight haze. A mixture of micro and macro bubbles rise at varying rates. A thin spongy covering dissipates quickly after the pour offering minimal lace.

S: The nose is light and fruity, fresh cantelope, green melon with some cereal grains. Very soft orange peels come on the trail.

T: Fruity flavor, soft dry lemony herbal hops compliment the fresh pale grains. Soft orange flavors, with a lemony kiss of wet hops. Lightly acidic, fresh grapefruit juice, with a farewell of fresh graininess and a light tart nature.

M: lightly tart with a sharp crisp effervesce. Light bodied with a lingering tart lemon graininess on the swallow.

O: fresh and fruity nature, nice grain base. Good session material, easy going down, pronounced with a sharp clarity of flavor. Nice hop addition and solid by example makes this six pack worthy.
