Not exactly my favorite brew. Aroma was slightly fruity with a note or two of hops. flavor was very light without much at all. A fine brew to drink in the summertime while mowing the lawn

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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: a hazy light golden color, pours with a large beige head that settles pretty quick
Aroma: strong wheat, bread, banana
Taste: kind of bland, hints of wheat, also very faint hints of industrial lager
Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, leaves mouth dry, minimal aftertaste
Overall: pretty disappointed in this one, it's just too bland,

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is nice crisp malt and kolsch yeast. Taste follows, super clean and easy. Enjoyable, bubbly carbonation, nothing special but solid for the style.

On tap at Native Kitchen. Probably a good example of the style, but that, in essence is the problem. I could say it’s crisp and light and refreshing and a passable summer beer, but really it’s pretty boring. Taste is grainy and somewhat minerally. Has some wine characteristics. Not much in the way of hops or finish but fairly drinkable overall. Good crossover beer.

Draft at RBWG. Pours a clear yellow/pale golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have bready, cereal and crackery malts, mild sweetness, grass, mild bitterness, clean but not very much going on with this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- Clear golden amber with a 1" head that doesn’t give up, splotches of lace. Taste is malt with pencil shavings, honey, and dark earth. Light bittering enters in the finish. I’m not certain it is fresh, as these flavors don’t match my experience with the kolsch style. I expected better.

Can. Kolsch is such a boring beer and this is no exception. Clean and boring.

Taster at the brewery- thanks! Pours a pale, clear gold with a small, wispy white head. Aroma of grass, grains, and crackery malts. Flavor of grass, grains, crackery and cereal malts, leaves, and minerals. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, dry, malty mouthfeel. Not a bad kolsch.

A great drinking beer. Plain and simple, great drinking beer. No one gives much love to a simple beer like this, but they are the hardest to brew. The more subtle hint of diacetyl will come out, and almost never do i detect it. Well done, but one of my favorite breweries.
