When Mad Tree Lift was poured into the glass it has a rich head and as I was drinking it there was lacing on the glass. It has a rich cream taste with a citrus note while. The finish is very smooth. Haven’t had a bad beer from Mad Tree yet

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden yellow from the can with dissipating bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of bready grain and biscuits, kolsch yeast back end. Taste follows, a hint of citrus in there. Safe and easy, but highly drinkable and well done.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light, clear yellow with a white head. Aromas are sweet, grainy, and some grassiness coming through. Flavor adds a bit of citrusy lemon to the mix. Nice and refreshing. Very solid Kolsh and one of my new favorites for a hot day.

12 ounce can
I found this on a trip to the Party Source. Being a new Madtree I could not pass it up. They have a reputation for solid beers and I always love supporting the local breweries when I can. A fine example of a kolsch would be the perfect lawn mower beer for those who can find it on the shelves.
Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent base glows with a golden warmth. Crisp white head provides a refreshing presence. Lemons, crisp wheat, and grainy edges are on the simple side although what more do you expect from a basic session beer.
Flavor / Palate - Dry lemons, ginger ale, and light hops refresh the tongue. A mellow beer opens up as it hits the palate. A decent beer would be unremarkable for many people but this is a Kolsch from a city known for its German heritage. For that it is well worth buying a pack.

It's got a bit of a sweet corn and mild hop bite and a bit of citrus. Probably one of the best Kolsches I've ever had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Hazy light orange pour with a very small head that fades quickly. Aromas are crackers, grass, and light lemons. Taste has a slight sweet bread taste up front with a light bitterness in the spicy finish. Lots of grass and crackers throughout. Thin body makes it come off a little watery. A nice Kolsch.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can into a pint glass.
Pours a clear light gold with a one finger white head. The head fades somewhat quickly but leaves a thin cap of lacing on the beer.
Aroma is extremely bread with some very light floral and citrus notes from the hops. Overwhelmingly malty though.
The flavor has lots of malty goodness but it is not sweet and remains restrained. Light lemon and orange is present in the background along with a light bitterness. Mouthfeel has some body to it but is light enough to be refreshing.
Overall, a nicely done Kolsch style beer. The breadiness is wonderful and it is very refreshing. Good job.
