Bottle. Pours a golden yellow color with white head. Straw, hay, malty aromas dominate in this beer. Crisp, straw, earthy, grainy flavor. A nice crisp refreshing kolsch, with a nice touch of bitterness. This is just a really nice kolsch.

Tap @ Town Hall Tap Minneapolis. Pours a clear, golden appearance with a white head. Clean, crisp, grassy, herbal, slightly floral aroma. Really a crisp, grassy, straw, grainy flavor with a fair amount of character and while it’s nothing special, it was easy to drink.

Yeah, well, rated hedonistically, I have a hard time elevating this one very high. Rich yellow color with very clingy, white head. Corn and cherios, with a moderate bitterness in the finish and a lingering grassy note. There’s more to it than a typical American pale lager, but even as a Kolsch it isn’t particularly to my liking. As my wife would say, it tastes an awful lot like beer. Bottle.

Had this at the All Pints North festival in Duluth, MN. Light bitter scent, a little bit on of a corny flavor.

Gold pour with a medium white head.
aroma is biscuity, light grainy malt. light melon and grassy hop.
Flavour is more aggressive grassy hop up front backed by cereal, light honey sweetness, then a semi dry finish.

12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a large white head. At first sniff I swear it smell like sauerkrat, aroma of bready yeast, corn, grain, and hops. Taste is light and refreshing, hop spiciness, Cheerio grains, grassy, with slight honey, and finishing dry. Nice Kolsch! Great on a scorcher like today.
