Sample from a bottle. Pours an unclear yellow, with a big, frothy, white head. The nose is biscuits, lemon zest, straw, and some floral hops. Sweet flavor, with a light, crisp bitterness. Light body, crisp, lightly effervescent, and silky. This is a pretty solid American Koelsch, and a refreshing, easy beer.

zoucrew102 (1179) - - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle. Breadth malt aroma with notes of earthy hops. Pours clear pale golden colored with half a finger of white head with good retention and negligible lacing. Starts with breadth malt malt flavors to go with the light body and crisp mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and a touch dry with slight earthy hops joining with the malt. Very drinkable, refreshing warm weather beer.

theisti (3714) - Kansas, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Pint bottle purchased at Applejack in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. Bottled on 12.18.14 printed on label. The pour is slight chill haze golden yellow with a small foamy white head. The aroma is bready malt along with floral earth hop. The taste is the bready malt, mild fruit sweetness, and finishes with the floral, softly mineral hop. The flavors all linger a bit long. The palate is light to medium bodied, with soft natural carbonation and the the somewhat long muddled finish. Decent.

Ibrew2or3 (7931) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Poured up on tap at Euclid Hall where it exhibits a crystal clear gold body thin bright white head. The aroma offers up sweetness, bready almost doughy maltiness a bit of corn. The taste is similar with doughy malts, a bit of lemon tartness, sweet corn and sweet maltiness. Overall this is decent albeit too sweet and heavy for a Kolsch. Sorry.

Tap. Straw color. Mild gain aroma. Well carbonated. On the sweet side for the style, and decent palate. Easy drinking as a pale lager substitute.
