Murky yellow color out of the bottle with a fizzy white head. Sweet nose with some light malts. Light beer with some honey, lemon, and light buscuit dough that gets a little heavy in the finish. Decent summer beer.

Bottle from miketd. Thanks man! Pours a rich cloudy golden with a small whitish head. Smell is sweet fresh light malt and honey lemon. Taste is slightly thin, but crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable and very lightly hopped. Touch too bland, but a decent kolsch.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy straw golden color forming a nice white foamy head. Aroma of light straw grass, a bit of malty buds, and slight ocean water. Flavour of raw straw, earthen dirt, and malted breads. A Straight up Kolsch beer, no doubt. Easy drinker, clean and refreshing. Not a knock out or memorable beer, yet a good one for the lawn.

A little heavy for a Kolsch but still good. Nice nose greated with a light white head. Poured a clear yellow. taste was good, some fruit and maltiness. carbonation was good but mouthfeel was a little heavy for style. Nice for a state side Kolsch. Good for sessions!
