This is pretty close, as american efforts just keep getting better. Light fruity fresh with subtile hops and bitter clean finish. Just a tad light overall but close.

Enjoyable and seems to hit the style pretty well as far as I can tell. Crisp but not harsh, a softer lager. Hops comes through, could have been a little more lively in the glass. Still, nice effort, I could drink this anytime. Thanks jsanda.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a white head.
S: Citrus and floral hops to begin with. Some bready malts and a hint of grass follows. Light lemon peel notes and a little bit of straw. Just a little bit yeasty and fairly crisp.
T: Starts off somewhat sweet and malty with some nice bread flavor. Despite their prominence on the aroma, there is only a light citrus hop note. A touch of straw, mild grass, and a soft bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Usually random kolsches are not beers I expect to be any good, but this was pretty decent.

Kolsch is not my favorite style of beer. However, when introducing a friend to the family of beers, it is a favorite warm up. They tend to be light, mild and easy to drink.
I found the angry angel while in North Carolina in a grocery store.
The pour was darker than I expect in a kolsch. The head was medium white bubbles. the aroma had a distinct sweet honey/fruity pebbles aroma. The body was light, the beer was sweet, the honey definatly came through in the whole beer experience.
And OK beer.

Poured from a Bottle to a Pils glass.
Nice golden color with about an inch of fine white head which left medium lacing on the glass as it dissipated. Smells yeasty with a slight fruitiness to it.
The taste is ike the smell, Malty and slightly fruity mid palate followed nicely by medium hoppy bitterness. Towards the upper spectrum of light-bodied, crisp mouthfeel, but with more of a lushness than most Kolsch’s.
Nice, crisp beer with appropriate hoppyness and more flavor than your typical Kolsch. Very drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Kildare’s in Chapel Hill. Blonde in color with great clarity and good lacing. Aroma is rather buttery - something this style can be prone to it seems - with graininess and earthy hop notes. A little buttery on the flavor as well, with earth flavors and pilsner malt. Not crisp enough for what this style should be, a little "soft" on the palate if that makes any sense. Overall I didn’t think this beer was great for the style or overall. Not a big fan.

Bottle. Aroma was florel, dough, a bit of citrus. Pours a pale hazy yellow with medium white head. It has a light sweetness flavor followed by a longer light bitterness. Pretty well balanced and refreshing, not much bite. Pretty decent overall.

12 oz.bottle that I got in a trade with Kajll.Thanks Ken! This was the better of the two Kolsch styles, nice pick. Pored a almost amber / hazy yellow color with a small amount of head.A light bit of hops aroma with some cooked cereal and grain. A very nice nose that I really liked. Light watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with light acidity and some grainy sweetness. Mild malt flavor. Mild hops and light bitter finish. I found this to be pleasant, got one more Kolsch tonight.
