3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium amber, almost gold in color with a very small white fizzy head that disappeared in a matter of seconds and had some really poor lacing.
The aroma was very mild of a light bread malts, a light floral hop and had a slight scent of an earthy yeast with a hint of citrus (lemon).
The taste at first was slightly bitter and mildly acidic with a nice malt characteristic, it then became a bit bitterer and had a nice dose of wheat and just a very light touch of citrus at the end with the flavor lasting only a short time on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was creamy and a little dry in texture with a light to medium body and a nice soft carbonation.
Overall a mild/flavorful tasting brew that is very easy to drink...

Amber pour with just a little head. Slight white lacing. Slightly bitter, fairly watery, easy to drink but very little character, just not much going on.

@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- Clear golden amber with a 1" head that settles slowly to a head cover, bits and pieces of lace. Taste is a buttery malt with biscuit and mild hops - all of it only shows on the sides and back of the tongue. The finish exposes a thin veneer of numbing wintergreen that sets this in an unusual place. Not very representative of the style.

light gold color; almost undetectable aroma - maybe a bit earthy and light hops; a crisp, clean, light, refreshng beer; may be good for a day in the sun, but otherwise not my favorite

Pours deeper gold with a medium white head which dissipated quickly. Aroma of, grass, grainy and floral. Taste is sweet with light bitters. Crisp and clean finish.

Tap at flying saucer Charlotte - Pours straw, decent amount of head. Pretty bland, which seems to be true to style. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear straw gold with a small white head. Some nice lacing on the glass. Subtle flower, grain & fruit aromas. Appropriate for the style, some malts come through as well. Light bodied and easy-drinking w/ avg carb leaving a crisp mouthfeel. A little dry for a kolsch, but that’s nit-picking. Flavors are grains, lemongrass, malt, floral/herbal hops in the middle and some astringent bitterness in the finish. Overall an excellent summer beer, but a little bitter for a kolsch.

Good Cartoon Network-esque label; clear, straw gold. Sweet straw malt aroma. Very crisp, a little corny/sulphury. Light body. Decent. Thanks, LuckyDog.

Bright spicy aroma, golden color, thin white head. A bit of a cheap adjunct flavor, but generally a decent interpretation of the style.
