This was served in a stange. The appearance was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Messy lacing stuck around the glass. The smell started with a sweet grassy yet lightly crisp malt and delicate spicy grassy hops. The taste was about the same sort of sweet yet lightly spiced crisp flavor. There’s no aftertaste and no finish. On the palate, this sat exceptionally light and came across exceptionally smooth on my tongue. Overall, good kolsch I’d have again.

Pours a bright yellow clear color with a nice frothy bright white head. Abundant carbonation. Smells citrusy, very lightly malty as well. Initial taste is light, crisp and a mildly bitter aftertaste. Lacing is impressive. Overall a great summertime brew

Bought as part of a 12 mixer. Pours out to clear golden, forming a modest white head with good retention and lacing. Carbonation is moderate. The nose opens with sulfur, slight DMS and some subtle fruity esters. Minimal hop nose. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean with a light-medium body. Finishes crisp, but not dry. The taste is clean, with focus on the pale malt and kolsch yeast character, with a mild bitterness, enough to nicely balance. A little hop flavor towards the end.

A nice Kolsch. A little more sulfur than you would find in most Kolschs but still pretty damn tasty. I would buy it again

3/26...clear bright gold with over an inch of thick white foam. Bright citrus nose. Lemony crisp. Smooth mellow malt with a spicy hop bite. Thin mouthfeel, goes down smooth. Fast finish, slightly sweet. Has a cereal like quality to it.

Nice aroma with apple, cracker, straw and spicy hop notes. Taste is similar with sweet apple and cracker upfront, and the spicy hops and hay notes on the crisp, dry finish. One of the better Kolsch's I have had.
