On draft in Avon Nc. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head. Malty aroma. Some slight lemon notes in an otherwise non-deScript flavor. Drinksble but not memorable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour. Normal head characteristics.
Nice nose of biscuit as a base with notes of pear and orange zest.
Light body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation with a touch of middle effervescence and a fairly prickly finish.
The flavor profile is very good. It is a kolsch, so flavor intensity is laid back. You get the flavors of the nose and a clean finish. Everything is subtle with this beer, as the style typically is. 2012 GABF bronze medal winner.

12 oz can waiting for me at my in laws. Thanks guys for finding me a local tick. Toasty light grain corn sweetness. Sweet corn and light grassy aroma. Finish is a little metallic and sweet.

From draft at brewery. Pours a hazy yellow with a small head. Aroma was very bready. The taste followed and drank like a Kolsch. A little citrus in there too.

12oz can, thanks to tmoney99. Damn, this is one soda-looking can. I swear we have a brand of indie-soda at my place of work that looks almost indistinguishable from this. Best by at the bottom of the can reads 12/13/14, but Tom gave this to me less than 2 weeks ago from his travels, and I’d be very surprised if he’d held onto this much longer than that. I’m rating this now because I believe that it’s a likely representation of what consumers can expect to find on the shelf, and for my own personal beer notes. Pours a hazy golden orange color, with a sort of excessive white airy fizzy head. I can’t even pour the whole can into my glass without pausing and waiting for the head to settle a bit. Touch of oxidization in the aroma, stale paper; mustiness. Dry taste, light to moderate bitter, lighter sweet. Mildly peppery. Bit of lemon. Medium body. Kind of lightly soft, tingly stronger carbonation. Light slick in the texture. Not a good craft golden. I thought it might still have a shot, after enjoying the pale ale a bit more than expected.. But this kolsch is worse off than expected even. Not even close to finishing it, lost interest very quick. Definitely check the dates on this one..

Can given to me by Tmoney99 consumed at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma and flavor have mild pale bready malts, light citrus and floral notes, yeast, very little bitterness, actually at the finish there is not much of anything, pretty boring. I don’t think there was anything bad about this, just nothing to get excited about either.

Can. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer.

Tap @ the station in Carrboro - pours clear gold, thin white head. There is a boringness to this one that is reflected in the score. It’s drinkable, but there are much more exciting things out there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has a slight toast and cereal to it. Appearance is pale golden, with a minimal white head. Has a light sweet taste with a hint of salt, the body is light to medium. If you are in an area where this is available and are having friends over,serve this beer as a change from the normal hum drum beers they are probably familiar with and you can’t go wrong!
