Golden hued with with plenty of vibrant carbonation bubbles and a moderate amount of sediment. There's a fingernail of dishwater white covering the vast majority of the top. The aroma is of earthy German hops and clean, crisp, light malt. I'm tasting light crackery and salty malt along with a hint of gentle, yet earthy German lawnmower hops. The mouth is light, crisp, and refreshing.

a rather pedestrian but highly drinkable kolsch, as evidenced by my first one being slammed with my brother behind a jeep in the publix parking lot as we waited for our gals to emerge from a grocery run. its that kind of beer, a warm weather bubbly crusher without a ton of character to it, easily the simplest and least impressive beer i have had from these guys, which is not at all a knock against it. the other five cans in the sixer were enjoyed in a more civilized manner, revealing a big headed golden brew with lots of carbonation and clarity. it smells and tastes a little dumbed down to me from a grain standpoint, like it doesnt quite have that crackery german essence to it that defines the style in the best examples of it, its just pils type, easy and crisp still, but without as much flavor as i prefer in one of these. same for the yeast, which dries this out nicely and makes it refreshing, but its missing that european character that good kolsch has in its yeast profile. i dont miss it much though, as this is nice and bubbly and easy down when its cold, and it warms up better than most, which happens fast in the florida sun. my dad thought this was, "right in his wheelhouse" which i suppose is about par for the course... i prefer the more robust jdubs brews to to this one...

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.
