Pours a very pale yellow. Mildly fruity aroma. The taste is sour fruit with faint citrus notes. Sour malt aftertaste. Overall a little disappointing.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear, pale straw yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of grain and wheat. The taste is grain and wheat. Overall, a real good beer.

look: 1.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of hops, and slight adjunct. Does not seem to fit the style of a Kolsch, but rather a Light Lager or an American Pale Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of hops, and slight adjunct. Overall, weak appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, malts, grains. Taste is the same, grains and malts, some crispness, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a refreshing beer, but lacking any real punch.

This pours a pale, light yellow color with a slight white head. The aroma is light with grains. The taste is smooth, light, and full of grain. This is a much better tasting that the rating would suggest. Well made for the style.
