"light and refreshing, but with just a touch more flavor than i expected from the style. can’t say i’ve ever been excited for a kolsch, but this one is not bad. sampled draft at the bend pub."

Tap at Deschutes: Light golden pour with a sizeable white head. Lightly fruity aroma, some bits of grass. Smooth lager malt and some bready notes, almost wheat. Again a bit grassey and light fruits.

On Tap at the brewpub in Bend, OR Clear light orange with nary a film of a white head. Very pale light malt aro.a with a touch of citrus. Flavor is similar with a very clean palatte. A bit chalky at the end.

Tap from a 4oz. sample at the brewery. Clear, golden colored with a decent white head. Good lacing. Mildly fruity in aroma and flavor, fairly clean tasting. Hoppy for a Kolsch.

A seasonal at the brewpub in Bend, this poured a nice light golden color and had a pleasantly light hop aroma with a touch of sweetness. Nicely balanced, pleasant little bitter finish. Very refreshing on a hot Central Oregon day.
