12 oz. bottle poured into willibecher.

A- Golden straw in color. A faint haze. Head is off white and pretty dense. Retention is okay, and relatively no lacing.

S- Subtle stonefruit, and floral. Malt profile is a bit grassy and lightly toasted.

T- Subtly sweet, with a nice bready note. Not fruity. Floral/herbal hop.

M- Body is light. Nice crisp, faintly bitter finish.

O- Not bad. Nothing outstanding though. Mild, a bit bland.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of floral hops, light lemon notes. Taste is crisp, hops, malts, grassy, some honey. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a smooth and highly refreshing beer.

Pours a clear yellow-gold with a bubbly, frothy white foam head. Smells like sweet malt, mild honey, some mild fruit, subtle spice, with grass and pine. Tastes like balanced sweet malt, some mild spice, subtle fruit notes, with mild pine and dank grass. Feels light-medium bodied, creamy with moderate-low carbonation. Overall a nice drinkable Kölsch.

Light, refreshing. A color of old-jewel amber; smells of magnolias and a pine forest in the rain. Taste of floral notes, light hops, the easy-drinking lightness of the style. Medium carbonation, overall quite nice.

12 oz bottle in Florida.

Large off-white head over a hazy golden body.
The aroma has a nice interplay of hops and malts with some lemony and spicy notes.
Strong and hoppy flavor for style. The label does say it's a hybrid, and that's quite clear in the flavor, as is the success of this tasty, lemony "kolsch".

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
APPEARANCE: A hazy yellow/gold. I can just make out a moderate amount of small bubbles ring. Finger+ of off white foamy/creamy head that is lingering. Leaves nice lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Peppery, lots of breadiness, yeast, and a big earthiness. Some background citrus and freshly cut grass.
TASTE: Exactly like aroma. Nice lingering but mild peppery quality.
FEEL: Mild carbonation. The beer is soft on the palate, wheat-like quality. Very dry.
OVERALL: Pleasant and mild. Would like more punch from the carbonation. Nice peppery notes.

Hazy orange golden look.
It has a very subtle smell that it's hard to tell what it is but I think it smells fruity.
The body is dry and light.
The taste is very mild, malty, easy to drink and there isn't much bitterness.

Pours a golden-yellow with a medium-thin white foamy head. Very little lacing left behind. Thin yeast, and citrus hop aromas. Taste is subtle citrus hops, and citrus and berries. Mouth feel is thin and watery. Overall, it's okay. It's certainly easy to drink, and it has more going on than your average macro, but still just okay.
