Light and lemony, but not as light as I’d like. Grassy hop finish, a bit of a stale hop character. Picked up in Asheville in 2015.

Transparent golden yellow with a white head. Bready grain aroma. Flavors are noble hops up front followed by a nice Pilsner malt flavor. Great balance. Very well made.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Weinhaus, 12/31/14
Aroma: Grainy and cereal malts, some crisp German hops, and fruity notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a decent sized white head and average lace
Flavor: Tastes similarly, with clean German hops, grainy/cereal malts, lightly sweet and bitter
Palate: The body is light-medium, nice mouthfeel, not watery at all, clean and easy drinking
I thought this was a solid, enjoyable example of the style. The malt and hops are in a nice balance. It is not amazing, but I had no complaints.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp, very slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thin half centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of malt, alcohol, lemons and a bit more citrus - interesting and fairly refreshing smelling. Light-bodied; Very sharp lemon and citrus flavours up front with only a touch of malt and complexity right afterwards. Aftertaste shows mostly the citrus - lemons and grapefruits and a touch of malt but a very light and airy beer with some slight sour notes as well. Overall, a fairly one-dimensional beer that is very nice for a hot summer day, but otherwise, it’s simplicity will make this too easy of a beer. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Cary, North Carolina for US$2,49 on 02-August-2014 sampled at home in Washington on 26-September-2014.

From the July 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a clear pale yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet Pez, vague fruits and artificial sugar. The flavor was tart and bitter bread dough, Pez and citrus. Medium length finish. Light to medium body. Meh.

Pretty good Kolsch, nothing really sets it apart from any other beers of this same style. Really liked their IPA, not so much this beer.

Sample @ French Broad during RBWG, Asheville. Gold pour with a modest white head. Pretty mellow aroma. Some honeyed bread, cotton field. The taste is crisp, clean. Light apple and pear fruit salad. Bready malt. Light body, soft carbonation. Well-behaved, meek. Decent.
