A: crystal clear; light gold in color; 1+ finger moussy white head that receded slowly to a thin cap; very nice, thick lacing;

S: grainy, a little lemon, a touch sulfury;

T: delicate; grainy up front; a little spice added in a mid-palate that lasts through the finish; very light bitterness at the end;

M: light bodied; low to moderate carbonation - a little creamy; lightly dry finish;

O: not as refreshing as other Kolschs; but well done none the less;

A very decent Kolsch, nice and hoppy. The only thing that brings my score down would be a slight funky aftertaste. Still very drinkable.

Delicious and refreshing. Much better than Sam Adams Summer IMO. Perfect summer beer for me and a nice, light change of pace from my usual IPA's.
