Mild aroma of Noble hops balanced with a mild malt. A mild sour taste with balanced bitter finish. Has a deep yellowish amber that has a mild opaqueness.

This is a good beer. I had it after a hot evening working outside and it’s a perfect summer beer.

From a draft pour from the Cape Ann brewpub. Golden yellow and white head. Light body and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is light malts and some floral hops. Light bitter finish. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

pours a light, translucent, pale golden yellow with a small head.. the scent is very rogue and citrus infused, with bits of lemon, lemongrass and a touch of honey permeating above the brim.. the hit to the palate is light yet crisp, like a cool breeze at the beach.. the taste is followed by a pronounced yeast flavoring that resides just long enough to leave its mark.. small notes of hops accented by a carbinated aftertaste.. altogether a good first sample of cape ann and a good example of a kolsch...

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hazy golden blonde body. Aroma is almost nothing, very faint malt. Taste is grain, lemon, Earth hops, grass and sweet malt. Body is light and almost uncarbonated. Slick feel on the palate. Ends with stronger hop and yeast notes, more earth hops, light grains and soft biscuit notes. No bitterness, overall good. I would try another of the style.

Very nice IPA, on the mild side, but decent pine aromas an flavors. Shared with two dudes from the Federal Reserve Bank. I just hope they don’t raise interest rates.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours hazy straw gold with a nice off-white head. nose of honey, malt, toast, spice, and oak. flavor is malty- no real hoppiness to it in the onset, just lots of honey, malt, and spice. Then, as it sits, it becomes drier and a little bitter. not bad, but not very much like a true koelsch.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle (thanks once again to Pam). Nothing really to write home about here, but decently refreshing for a summertime beer. Pours with very little bubbling white head, a light body and bright orange color. The nose of lemon grass, mixed spice, and buttery grains. A fairly crisp body that was slightly less watery than expected. Herbal grass is the main player in the flavor. Also, light soap, popcorn, light citrus fruit, and light medicine. I’ve had worse.
