Crystal clear pale yellow with a grainy nose. Extremely grainy flavor but good example for style. Had a clean, diacetyl flavor. Husky finish. I thought this was their best offering the day I visited.

KBjam. Clean golden pour with clean white head and lace. Aroma of corn and light malt. Corn and light malt with a good light bitter. Nice carbonation a tad thin. Really a pretty decent refreshing drinker.

A golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some lemons and grass. The flavor contains a bit of sourness with some lemons and a bit of spices. A rather malty presence. Overall a pretty nice beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Barleys, Asheville. Nose is bready malts, crisp hops. Flavor is crisp and slightly spicey and slightly watery. Its fine, but not as much flavor as the big boss kolsch. Kolsches are hit or miss for me, the american versions are mainly miss though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 On tap at the Federal. Tasty beer, great for summer. Light golden pour, nothing much to look at. Crisp, light hoppy aroma with a bit of vague spiciness to it. Nice refreshing bitter finish. Great with food. Another solid offering from French Broad. A near perfect beer for a 90-degree summer day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 On tap at The Federal, Durham. Nice golden pour with a lively spicy aroma. Thin head and a fairly thin body too. The flavor is crisp hops with a bit of fruit and spice in there. But it washes out pretty quickly. While thirst-quenching, this pales besides some of its local competitors.
