Can from TW&M McLean - pours clear Amber, white head. Aroma has some floral diesel notes to it. This one reads like a Pilsner, which is not what I expect in a kolsch. It’s a pretty decent Pilsner, but not what I was expecting.

Poured yellow, nice head. Clean pils malt aroma. Flavor matches, with the very slightest hint of a floral hop. Really nicely done.

Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is earthy, citrus and grass. Taste is light bitters and touch of sweetness, overall it was very muted.

Bulk_Carrier (2716) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - MAY 4, 2015
This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a two finger white foamy to bubbly head that quickly dissipated leaving no lacing. The smell had a sweet light lemon lacing around a sweet grassy hops. The taste was mainly the same as the smell leaving no aftertaste nor finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a super sessionability about it. Carbonated appropriately as a kolsch, this one had a smooth sweet appeal rolling over my tongue. Overall, kolsch fans need to jump on this one. I would have it again.
