look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is straw with an off white that dissipates quickly.

Smell grainy, i get some husks of grains and light wheat, maybe biscuit.

Taste is pretty clean, a light lingering stickiness and maybe even some saltiness - hop presence is a little grassy with just enough bittnerness to clean up the light wheat and malt flavors.

Mouthfeel is pretty neutral, nice carbonation and lingering flavors.

Overall, this has a good backbone in malty and grainy/bready flavors and its nicely carbonated - just not a head turner but solid.

Poured into a pint glass, this is a bright golden color and slightly fizzy. Smells sweet and grainy with hints of white grape juice and honey. Taste leans on the sweet side, with more white grape juice and only a very light hoppiness in the background. Very mild, drinkable, and refreshing.

Poured this brew into a regular pint glass, and this brew makes a soft fluffy white head, of about two fingers thick, and the body is golden straw color, and has just a slight hint of haze.

The aroma is of lemon hops, grainy huskiness, honey, and a kind metallic quality too.

In the taste, I'm getting grainy huskiness, tobacco, honey, lemon grass, and I guess that pretty much sums it up. Pretty much the taste and aroma go hand in hand.

Feels well carbonated, wetting to the palate, and a little oily slick. Light to medium in body.

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.
