This pale golden ale has noble hops present in the aroma as well as the taste. This ale is unfiltered while being crisp and refreshing. A delicious choice for these hot summer days.

Poured a golden color with a white head. Aroma was of grassy hops and pale malt. Flavor similar, a little sweet and missing that doughy cracker character I like from a good kolsch

Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Brilliant gold-yellow color with decent clarity; filled with a minor chill haze & topped with a ghost-white blanket of foam. Lots of carbonation bubble steams jettisoning towards the top. Aroma of grains, musky hop leaves, apple skins, a touch of citrus, & some mildly sweet cereal notes. Slightly nebulous "spice" to it, too? Taking a sip, that spice seems to be peppercorn. Not sure if this beer has peppercorn in it (don’t think so) but it sure tastes like it. Gives a nice, spicy bite to the flavor. Sounds weird, but it works. Leafy hop notes, mildly bitter & slightly earthy with backing flavors of heavy cereal grains, pale malt sweetness, crisp apple skins, citrus zest, & a bit of bready yeast. That moderate spicy tone lingers in the aftertaste. Crisp body leaves a mostly dry finish. Quaffable as hell. Really enjoyed this one, pretty different & tasty Kolsch.

Sample at Kuhnhenn on 5/16/14. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of pale malt and crisp hop. Sweet malt flavor with crisp noble hop bitterness before a creamy finish.

Nice close to clear golden color. Bit of bready aroma followed by some sweetness. Light sweet flavor with a crisp finish with a touch of lingering bitter hops

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Pour on tap at GABF, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, hints of slight grassy spice, slight earth, touch of honey, slight grainy notes with hints of hay and straw. Taste is a mix of hay, earth, straw into some biscuit, bread, slight grassy notes, finishing fairly clean, slightly dry.

Draft at Kuhnhenn, listed at 4%. Pours a clear pale gold color with a small frothy head that lingers nicely. Aroma is sweet grain with a very light fruitiness. Taste starts with sweet grain, a bit of straw and grass. Very light flowers and fruit in the finish. Medium body, nice smooth mouthfeel. Crisp finish. A nice summer beer.

jredmond (7671) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Draft at Barcade with Andrew and Brendan. Pours a clear golden body with frothy white head and light lacing. Aroma is sweet straw, fruity malts and light grain. Mouthfeel is clean, refreshing and crisp but sort of ends with a slightly unpleasant grainy finish. Ok beer, above average for a Kolsch.

Tap @ Barcade for Kuhnhenn event w James and Andy. Pale gold, no head or lacing, in shaker. Aroma is butter, straw, soily grassy zoo enclosure. Flavors are banana, small yeast, a little buttery texture. Not bad.

On tap. Poured a near clear gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer and laced nicely. Aroma was full of sweet grains with some caramel and a nice underlying light fruit. Flavor had lots of sweet grains as well with a hint of nuttiness as well as an underlying caramel.
