Pours light in color, with a thin head, lacing lasts on the glass.

Smell was nominal, very light.

Taste was good for a light beer. However, I was expecting some punch. It just wasn't there.

Mouth feel is light bodied.

Overall the beer came across way to light for me. If your in the mood for a light tasting beer on a warm summer day this would satisfy. I was just expecting a little more flavor.

It wasn't until I got to this page and read Kolsch that this made sense. The bottle said ale. I didn't see Kolsch anywhere, so I just kinda went, huh?

As a Kolsch, this is pretty passable, but kind of ordinary. It looks like it should and smells a little like a funky pile of food, as it should!

The taste is slightly sweet and not at all very hoppy. It's OK, overall, but not something I am going to rush out and buy again.

Soft malt and a bit of yeast, but not the yeast I normally consider for the listed style.
Very clear yellow mostly. Small white head settles out quickly.
A little tart with some puckering on the cheeks.. Soft malt. A little citrus type fruit.
Moderately light feel with ample carbonation.
Easy drinker. Seems little odd for winter/spring seasonal. Fitting right now for 90 degree weather.
For as much as I like this brewery and as much as I want to like this - meh.

New seasonal from Point, I really like the label on this one. 12 oz brown longneck poured into a pint glass, the beer is a bright, light gold with a off-white head.

Grains, pear and light floral note on the nose.
The taste tracks the smell. It has a light grains, some fruit (pear and apple) and some slight spice in the finish. It has a slight sour note mid-glass, which I like.

The mouth is slightly creamy with a bit of an astringent bite.

Easy drinker here. I think the Point folks got this one right in the wheel house. Well Done!

12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a stange.
0032 printed on the neck in pink. No info on bottle. (4.9% ABV, 13.5 IBUs, 150 calories)

A - Crisp clear, bright golden yellow-colored, Point Three Kings features a well-formed and long-lasting bright white head. Rings of sticky lace are left clinging to the stange.

S - An overpowering light-struck skunk aroma upon the crack of the cap subsides once poured into the stange to allow more of the subtle lager-like nuances through. Grainy pale straw and lightly buttered wheat bread fall into place with an almost unnoticeable floral noble hop aroma on the finish. Crisp and clean with minor imperfections here.

T - Much more imperfection-less in flavor, the skunkiness doesn't carry into the mouth. Hard grainy pale malt is softened out by a touch of pilsner malt sweetness and wheat on the finish. Again, hops are near absent, mainly used for balance but give the finish just a pinch of floral character.

M - Light-bodied and crisp, there isn't much place for flaws to hide here, rather, the beer sticks to basics; good refreshing carbonation, clean body, and light floral, dry bitterness for balance.

O - Almost lager-like in quality and cleanliness, this Kölsch is a fantastic lawnmower beer for the warm spring-to-hot summer months. Delicately pairing soft floral hops with pale and pils malt and soft wheat undertones, this clean beer is, as they say, "well made".

Reviewed from notes.

A. Very slightly hazed lemon yellow color with a persistent little collar ring for a head, no lacing left behind.

S. Faint grassy/herbal hopping with a mellow honeyed malt and a whisper-thin breath of pears.

T. Similar to the what the nose would have predicted, a flash of honeyed sweetness tempered by floral hopping most of all, has a slight tart edge at times but only just a in brief moments... sort of like a white pear would have. Not that it is actually all that sweet mind you...more like it has the minor tartness and acidity of that pear without most of the sugar from the pear. That's really the best that I can describe it. Finish is on the drier half of semi-sweet and floral, but also not particularly extended nor deep.

M. Lighter bodied, thirst quenching, well carbonated.

If only there was some sort of head and maybe some sort of lemon peel note this could have been a pretty awesome Kolsch.
