In technical, brewmaster terminology, this is one groovy beer. Crisp, easy drinking, and refreshing. As groovy as a big wave ... without the salt. 25 bitterness units

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2012
single Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours golden with a dissipating white head, not much carbonation bubbles. Pleasant aroma of lemonade, fruity esters, and light grains. Light bodied and refreshing. Flavor of biscuit and citrus countered by a tame spicy bitterness. Crisp finish with just a very small hint of hop. for a Kolsch style it did not hit the mark with me.

scarletfire65 (1149) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is light fruity yeast, maybe some pineapple rind. The flavor has tropical fruit, Fruit Stripe Gum, wheatty malts, and a simple grassy hop profile. Doesn’t taste or feel like it was lagered, not very Kolsch like. More like a simple golden ale.

Nero55 (917) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2015

Andrew196 (1133) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Golden yellow, faint haze, decent eggshell head. Mild apple and yeast aroma. Pretty wimpy follow through, mild hops and sweet finish. Mild, refreshing I guess.

crossovert (9728) - Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2015
355ml bottle. Golden pour, foamy white head. Aroma is herbal, floral, some metal notes, light fruit and grain. Smells pretty refreshing and traditional. Flavor is more of a let-down, initial flavor is wet dog, its light and a good hop chracter, relatively dry, but just falls short, it has some off notes.

Some white head, clear sparkling appearance, low aroma but a more vigorous flavor with a marked bitterness, a little metallic. Not very good. Bottle.

Aurelius (4723) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Sweetish malty aroma. Standard longneck, functional label. Clear medium gold, small misty white head. Tangy, slightly metallic, some straw notes. Medium body, goes a little flat. Tangy aftertaste. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.

PorterPounder (6395) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Tallahassee. Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling, medium gold pour, soft, snow white head, decent film of lacing. Aroma has some light buttery accents, light graininess. Pleasant flavor, some buttery notes, light spiciness, some grassiness. Mouthfeel has a decent crispness to it. Nice summer refresher.

ttoadee (1027) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Yellow pour,small white head. Nose is soft malt. Bittersweet. Middle is sweet malt and hay. Finish is light and floral. Unassuming, but fairly solid.

notalush (5449) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2015
I typically find these TJ brand products underrated, but this one is pretty disappointing - the nose is what’s most off, with a little DMS and on oily character, although there is some pleasant malt character and lightly floral hops - flavor has a kind of sharp acidity to it - some damp graininess, mildly bitter hop character - finish of sweet corn character - yea, not that good.
