Great beer. Normally a fan of dark dark stuff but this is a worthy equivalent in a light beer. Super light but doesn?t taste cheap. absolutely no bitterness (for better or worse). Solid loud body but no overwhelming flavors. Mild corn aroma. Nice head.

12-ounce bottle in a pint glass. Pours dark amber. Not bad; a little heavier than I think of for a "Summer" ale, but good nonetheless.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Smoothsippin (47) - Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours a dark golden with a white head. Earthy aroma. Mildly sweet/ bittersweet into the mouth and on the swallow. Lingering finish, pleasantly so. Refreshing and a decent summer beer. Not bad for the kolsch style.

Bland, even for the style. Clear golden color. Modest head. No alcohol evident. Average body.

chucklemation (1209) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Pours a transparent gold with a thin, long-lasting white head. Aroma is sweet bread and slight citrus hops. Flavor is very sweet bread malts. Has a crisp body. Nothing too remarkable, but still decent.

Darker yellow color and spicy floral hops aroma. Sweet bread taste with light and somewhat sticky mouth feel and carbonation. Fairly clean and refreshing finish.

Onslow (1358) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear amber yellow brew with white head that settles down to a steady scrum. Aroma of light caramel with mild hops. Taste is light caramel up front iwth a late blooming mild bitter at the finish. Ends a little sour with a bit of lingering sweetness. Very enjoyable and refreshing.

I’ll be the first to rate this at a non airport venue, which funny, I have to go there tonight. Draft pour pint at the Safe. Pours an amber color with a thin patchy head. Rich malt flavor with a sweet finish. Not typical for the style for sure. Overall not bad.

Bottle. Pours fairly clear gold with no head. Nose is grain and DMS. Taste is sweet with a little creaminess. Okay.
