Straight up down the middle kolsch here. Nicely done. Some aftertaste on the back but not as much as other brewer's attempts.

Would have no issues repeating the experience.

Pours slightly hazy, straw-orange. Has a one finger, white, soapy head that dissipates quickly.
Smells of lemon and very slight yeast and hop.
The yeast backing is slight, the lemon comes sliding in and goes down fairly uneventful with orange and slight hop showing up in the end.
A very light mouthfeel, and crisp and refreshing.
I am really getting into the Kolsches and Hellen lately, and this one was disappointing, however I could probably drink a few on a hot day.

Pours a straw yellow.
Smell is very light and clean. With a hint of citrus.
Taste is bready malt up front followed by a bit of lemon and citrus.

I like kolsches and I appreciate efforts by American breweries to try them, even though the industry isn't there yet. This is in that vein as simply not a very good beer, but I'm glad we're trying. It is thin in both malt and hops, and almost acrid. It gets a little better as you move through it, but not a great beer.

Drank it straight from the can dated March 26.
Not a big fan of the style BUT this beer was very tasty.
I could see crushing a few next to the pool .
Slight lemon flavor and light malt finish .
Mouth feel is thin as expected .
Really nice representation of the Kolsch style.
Prost!
