3.62/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color and appears to have a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of green grapes are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell but has stronger flavors of green grapes.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a bit of dryness in the finish.
O: This beer isn't that had of a representation of the style.

Serving type: bottle

L:
It's light yellow (listed as 5 ebc). The beer pours with a nice head, but doesn't retain its head for a long time. There is light lacing.
S:
- not a strong smell, but I detected passion fruit and notes of grapefruit
T:
-The smell of passion fruit and notes of grapefruit and citrus comes through in the taste. It's not a sweet beer despite its fruitiness. It's light-bodied, so the bitterness of the hops comes through, despite the beer not being overly hopped.
F:
-There is fairly high carbonation. It has a somewhat crisp, light and pleasant mouth feel.
O:
It's lighter-bodied, which would make it fairly accessible to the macro lager crowd, but it's considerably more bitter than a lager, and the passion fruit/citrus hops is enough to keep craft beer fans interested as well. This is actually my first Kolsch - I wish I had a frame of reference to the style for comparison. But overall, I enjoy it and I'll buy it again.

Pours extremely light straw to translucent gold from bottle, good carbonation, very little hop very light taste but extremely refreshing for the hot climate.
