I think this Kolsch is under-rated. I liked it as well as any other. Once you get it right, not much to vary in a Kolsch.

Got this at WFM craft pack, 12 for 12.99 Minus 10% case discount. Canned, and fresh. Fresh tasting. Reviewed again on 9-7-14.

A: 3.75 Into a tulip, this was slightly hazed, great color, great carbonation. Above average lacing & head retention

S: 3.75 Lemon, hay, straw & grassyness - smell the pilsner, a major pear note.

T: 3.6 Bready, lemony hops, pear up front. Lemony hops & astringency with floral hops, pears & a touch of tea like honey. Finishes crisp. Half way through, I added a slice of organic lemon, went great with chicken, basil, potatoes and strawberries dinner.

MF: 3.6 Light bodied, light carbonation & crispness; great balance. Excellent summer beer.

Overall - If you like pear, it's good as Kolsch gets in USA.
