I discovered Sunner Kolsch at the German restaurant in Raleigh, NC. Menus price: $9 (16 oz). Great with German cuisine. Later, I ordered a case (20 bottles) @ $80 + tax from my wine store. Also ordered two .2L "strange" glasses from Sunner, Ghmb. Great taste & presentation!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a glass.

Look - Beautiful clear orange-gold with a small short-lived white head. Strong streams of visible carbonation constantly shot upwards.

Smell - Wheat, cut grass, cilantro, light citrus. A great bouquet of light scents to welcome this warm weather.

Taste - Crisp and light, but a bit boring.

Feel - Carbonation is strong but fitting. The thin body makes it incredibly easy to drink.

Overall - A fine beer, I could see myself drinking a few of these on a warm summer day, but not interesting enough to carry itself for me.

Apart from look and smell (which isn't anything special and way too easy to get past) I don't see how anyone cannot like this beer. Great taste without being flat or watered down and a great year round drink.

The appearance was a clear golden yellow color and leaves the same color body with a one and a half fingered white foamy head that leaves some lightly clingy lacing. There is some light carbonation that is seen rising at a nice pace. The smell is light and grassy with a kinda herbal malty and corn combine sweetness. The taste is sweet, crisp, and light. There isn’t any aftertaste or finish. The palate is light on the body, and very sessionable. Carbonation sits just right for a Kolsch. Overall, I got this beer for a dollar and thought it was more than worth the price as it was refreshing enough to have with its respected food and be an awesome beer on my backporch in the summer.

This kolsch pours a fairly light yellow color with a medium foamy white head that leaves a nice lacing. The smell is a bit yeasty, with a light citrus, and some grains. The taste is the same, it is very biscuity, a bit sweet, but light like any good kolsch. The finish is not dry at all, which I would say is the main divergence between this and many other kolschs that I’ve had. The body is light. Overall a nice kolsch, with clean flavors. Very refreshing and great drinking in the summer.

L1-2-4-816 500 ml bottle.
Grassy aroma with a hint of hefe-like banana and buscuit. Aroma is a bit faint, though. Pale gold-yellow, very vigorous pour results in a tall white head, very attractive carb bubbles rising through the gold. Head recedes fairly quickly with lots of thick, creamy-looking lacing lagging behind and untimately slipping down the glass. All the looks you'd expect from a German lager. Smooth and somewhat thick feel. Mild initial taste is all malts: buscuit with the banana aroma still coming in as you drink (I used an English style pub imperial pint glass... nonic ... you might miss the aroma if you used one of those skinny stanges). Malts are balanced by the hops in the middle and finish with notes of floral, grass, and very slight bittering. Clean finish. Very refreshing beer.

Pours a clear golden/dark straw color with a modest head. It soon disapates and leaves an ultra thin ring that doesn't retain for so long.
In the nose there is at first a slightly metallic aroma, followed by a Hefeweizen like banana. The toasted malts are ornamented by a light herbal spice.
Sweet and malt forward at first. Soon, however, a moderate grassy and herbal hops presence adds balance. Nice lemon zest in the mouthfeel. The finish is semi dry. Medium to light in body with a moderate and tingly carbonation which adds crispness.
Solid and refreshing all around.

Haven't had anything from this brewery before, so I figured this was worth a shot.

Pours a decent fizzy bubbly smaller head that fades at a med pace, decent lacing, very clear golden honey color.

Nose light sweet malt, floral malty aroma, sweet corn, toasted grains, straw, golden malt and a little wheat-ish, a touch of grassy hop, a little fruity esters.

Taste more straw and toasted lager malts, grainy a little husky, straw and hay notes, grassy as well both malts and hops, with some sweet flavors, a little sweet corn and fruity yeast ester notes, soft and crisp but a hint of minerality. Finish is dry and crisp but a touch more of the minerality, not so quite "clean" kolsch finish, touch grassy hop.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, some crispness, decent carb.

Overall I feel like this would be better in Germany, and seems to have gotten some lesser desirable characters in it's trip here, btu still a decent beer.
