slight head with lemon and orange aroma, taste reminded me of a sprite with hops, a clear grassy hops presence with mild taste of wheat light mouthfeel there are several better American kolsch easy to find but not a bad beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours clear and golden with a two finger head; decent retention and a few squiggles of lace

Smell: Crackery, with a sweeter shortbread aspect; somewhat grassy

Taste: Cracker malt, up front, with the sweeter shortbread tones building; grassy through the middle but the finish veers back to the sweeter elements

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: Easy to drink but a bit sweeter than I expected

i love kolsch in the summer. Bright honey gold, floral grassy springtime smell. Biscuit taste with the slightest hop bite. Light feel, overall very good.

Not much going on here. Not a particularly balanced beer either. Much more bitter than anything. Good mouthfeel upfront, but it closes off with a weird watery and bitter, albiet long-lasting, finish. Some presence of flavor, but very little lasts long enough to get a decent read on it. Weak and easy to drink in the end.

3.59/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clean golden, with an average head of white suds and a little lace.

Aroma: Honeyed malts, sweet and toasty. Nice and pretty true to style.

Taste: Clean and malty here, as should be. As above, faithful to style and easy to drink. Finishes clean and with only a touch of hops. Nice enough brew, though not one I’d really pursue again.

Poured from a bottle to glass.
Looks like nothing special. Gold light lager look with mild carbonation and forgettable lacing. Smells almost sweet like butterscotch. Tastes great and smooth like a beer to drink during a football game. Feel is ok but not hop profile. Not something I’ll remember but it wasn’t bad.
