COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on a kölsch style ale that is soft on the palate with delicate malt flavor. Balanced with a touch of wheat and honey notes. Dry and winelike with a flowery hop finish.

COD 5/26/16. Golden pour that is crystal clear. World class head volume, lacing and quite outstanding retention. Outstanding nose of light lemon, pale and biscuit malt, very light floral hops and hints of wheat. Light medium body that is smooth and a bit slick. Outstanding carbonation / body balance that is mildly effervescent in the middle and prickly in the finish. The flavor profile is quite outstanding. It begins with a subtly tart weak lemon note that morphs into grainy wheat over subtle biscuit. The middle is slightly sweet and is contrasted with a very subtle floral bitterness. The finish is clean and somewhat crisp. A soft note of honey lingers.

malvrich (233) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2016
4 week old can into a stange. A: Deep gold pour with fast falling head Slow bubbles rising. S: Smells of green apple, alcohol and light toast. T: Dry tart taste is mainly hoppy with dry grassy flavor. A little fermented fruit. M: Medium/light bodied with average level of carbonation and dryish finish. O: Had high hopes for this but found it fairly average. Smells sort of like cheap wine and it’s not all too refreshing. Kolsch lovers advised to try it though.

TheHopster (1041) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2016
Poured can while bar side at "The Ordinary" in Charleston. As expected, thin, mild and easy drinking. Not one of my favorite styles but pretty well done from a stateside brewer.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2015
16 oz can at Blossom in Charleston. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head that lasted through the first sip and left no lace. Aroma is malt with notes of yeast. The flavor is husky malt with mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

Shared a 16 oz can with Aurelius - thanks! Hazy, light golden pour, soft snow white head. Lemony touch to the aroma, some grassy hints. Solid Kolsch flavor, some buttery accents, a touch of lemon bitterness, yeasty back end.

Aurelius (5030) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Sweetish, lightly vanilla, protein drop aroma. Tallboy. Foggy straw blonde. Low bittering, graham sweetness, faintly astringent. Medium light body. This is not kolsch. Not sure what it is, not bad. Thanks, LuckyDog.

jgb9348 (5605) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Crisp pure golden and honey tinted body with a rich, large four centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of grain, light malt, rice, crackers, alcohol and some metal notes - not too pleasant. Light-bodied; Strong malt and cracker/biscuit flavour with a mild grassy and floral note and not much else behind. Aftertaste shows a mild sweetness with some honey and fruit and a little floral flavour, but mainly just malt and a hint of metal. Overall, a decent beer, but too meek and mild to be good - just a ho-hum beer and not worth searching out for. I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Charleston Beer Exchange in Charleston, South Carolina on 19-April-2015 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington near the end of Summer on 15-September-2015.

theisti (3851) - Kansas, USA - AUG 3, 2015
16 oz can purchased at Wine & Cheese, If You Please? on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The pour is a hazed golden with a bunch of fine carbonation bubbles and a one inch well formed white head. The aroma is a honey malt, grass and soft herbal. The taste is clean homey malt sweet with grass and herbal notes. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and the hay sweet malt finish. Overall solid take on the style.

Ernest (7283) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Can (Mellow Mushroom, Charleston SC, May 2015). Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation. A quiet, simple, plain rendition. After having tried River Rat’s interpretation of this style earlier in the same day, this had pretty big shoes to fill but just wasn’t inspiring. Average.
