On tap into a stang.
Nice 1/2 finger white crown of tiny white bubbles on top of a clear gold, fairly faint nose with some apple, some grain and crackers, a little yeasty spice, some fresh cut grass, in the taste the flavors in the nose come out much more clearly, and it is very tasty. Mouthful is great: soft but crisp, ends dry. Very refreshing and tasty.

Beautiful clear yellow with a clean floral smell and taste. Taste is very pleasant, fruity, mild, and crisp. It went very nicely with grilled salmon. I look forward to drinking it again.

Aroma: Faint fruit esters with the malt combines with a slight hop aroma, low pils malt with slight gain, subtle fruit, very low hop, slight sulfur from the pils malt. Appearance: Rocky off-white slightly gold tinted 2” head that slowly melts and leaves thick ledges of lace on the glass as you drink it. Brilliantly clear pale straw gold, very fine bubbles. Aroma: German pils malt and grain finishes dry. The malt has a slight toast to biscuit combined with faint sulfur and lingers through the finish into the aftertaste. Soft rounded palate with a delicate flavor balance between the soft malt, slight fruit, medium low hop bitterness, finishes dry. Mouthfeel: fine textured feel from the carbonation, smooth, clean and crisp, medium light body, and medium carbonation, nothing harsh or astringent. Overall Impression: Clean, crisp, well balanced

L: Crystal clear body, high carbonation. Slightly darker than a larger, though similar. Pours a decent head that dissipates quickly.
S: Very mild, some flowery hop. Some bready malt.
T: Excellently balanced brew. Nothing overtakes the palate, but there is a nice malt body, honey graham cracker like flavor, nice hop floral notes. Definately a nice sweetness to this one that is rounded out by the hops. Simple, refreshing, and balanced.
F: Crisp, light body with a delicate bitterness. Bubbly
O: Highly enjoyable, probably very sessionable. There is a enough flavor here to satisfy any advocate while also having an approachability. Likewise this beer is highly refreshing.

Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Weak grainy and fruity aroma, some hay and weak grass as well. Taste is mild grainy and sweet with a light crisp herbal finish. Clean and good.

Not a premiere Kölsch, but refreshing and very true to the style and refreshing on our first 90°F (32°C) late spring day.
