3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the tap a clear golden, bit of a white head. Malty aroma has an overtone of pear. Crisp, malty flavor has a firm note of pear and a hoppy undertone. Texture has only average thickness but good fizz, and leaves behind a fairly persistent tingle. A gateway to what? Perhaps a good "gateway" beer to wean people off the industrial swill.

Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from the ACC tourney. Very pale, clear beer; bad label. Dry, grainy aroma. Lightly sweet, mildly tangy, a little lemon nice flavor. Generally crisp. Light bodied and drinkable without obvious flaws.

From tap at brewery. Golden pour with high head. Aroma was bready with a sour hint. Taste followed. Clean and crisp but slight off taste for me.

Beer #15 Asheville trip. Liked the fact that they just came out and called it a Gateway beer. Having said that, it is a nicely done Kolsch. Clear, golden, nice head. Aroma is biscuity malts. Flavor is a match, just a faint hint of floral hops. Pleasant, well made brew.
