brystmar (1189) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Straw color with orange hues shining through. Delicate white head & lace perch atop the liquid with solid retention.

Nose is sweet grain, slightly vinous. Simple, yet nice. Palate brings crisp malts and a kiss of hops in the middle alongside the grainy sweetness. Finishes ever so mildly sweet and quite refreshing.
< br/> A solid example of the style! This is the first time I’ve said that about a Franconia brew, as their Hef & Dunkel are both disastrous. I can safely say this is the best beer I’ve had from them yet.

rosenbergh (6487) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2013
12 oz bottle. From Rosebud butternuts. Thanks Eric!
Cloudy pale yellow colour with a tiny white head. Grainy malt, mild hops and a touch of yeast in the aroma. The flavour is grassy hops and grainy malt. Very soft carbonation.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Sample at Ginger Man in Houston. Clear straw color with a medium fluffy white head that recedes gradually. Sticky small patches of lace. Aroma of grassy hops, malt and wood. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, earthy malt and slight oak. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

ben4321 (3759) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Location: Draft at Ginger Man - Houston, 7/23/13

Aroma: This nose is pretty simple, but solid, made up of grainy malts and grassy hops
Appearance: The pour is a clear gold color, with a lasting white head and sticky lace
Flavor: It has a clean and lightly sweet taste, it is lightly bitter as well
Palate: It has a light-medium body, and a clean and easy drinking mouthfeel
Overall Impression: This was a quite tasty, light, and easy drinking Kolsch. In this style it is pretty much right on for what I’m looking for.

kevinator (845) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2012
I must be careful because this is not one of my favorite styles and I want to give it a fair rating. As far as Kolsch goes, it’s very good and perfect for summer drinking. Aroma was grassy but not too strong. The color was clear golden. The mouthfeel was easy and light. The taste was pleasant with a good balance of flavors. I couldn’t pull out anything distinct though. I don’t understand why light beer drinkers don’t switch to something like this.

TizzleJizzle (599) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2012 On tap at West End Pub in Dallas. Faint aroma of resin & herbs. Ugly piss yellow color. Tasted like watery floral cereal. Overall nothing special, but I’m also not a big fan of this style, so take my review with a grain of salt
