Bottle from trade as an extra. Really nicely made Kolsch, but I'm still partial to the Pyramid version (Curve Ball). Still, this one has a solid palate and is very refreshing and crisp. Nice beer.

Pours a hazy off colored rusty gold. Nose is grainy and slightly metallic. Taste is grainy mildly bitter and not as watery as a typical lager. Finish is sweet, nothing special.....buts its the style, and would take this over any premium lager anytime. Quaff Score 6 / 10

Pours golden yellow with a white head and aroma of metal and grains. Taste is sweet, of grains, toasty malt, and some hops with a dry finish. Not much flavor in this brew, nothing special.

Bottle. Poured a pale lemon with a one-finger white head that quickly dissipated. Smell is sweet corn, grain, DMS, and light lemon. Taste is crisp and refreshing with flavors of corn, grain, light hops, and lemon with a lightly bitter finish. Light body with crisp carbonation. Great for a hot summer day.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle and served in a pint glass: Pours a clean straw hue with a fizzy but lasting head and had spotty lace. The aroma has notes of pale grain, some wheat and white bread dough, hint of lemongrass and some light hop bitterness. Just a hint of "corny" DMS, not all that noticeable however. The taste is clean pale grains and a nice light handed noble hop finish. Slight acidity lemon and herbal twang. A bit heavier than both the Kolsch biers I had before it, I think that is the wheat adding body and mouth feel. For the genre, the mouth feel is way above average. Overall, color me surprised for I expected this to be the least favorite of the three (Short’s 45 and Schlafly Kolsch) but it ended up being my favorite... Note, I have had this once before but that was clearly a skunked bottle, so glad this one was not.

Pale blonde pour. Single finger head. Aroma of hops and grain. Medium mouth. Taste is light and pleasant. A little grain in there with a great clean hop finish. Well crafted, easy drinking, nothing overly special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Honey, barley malt and hay aroma. Pale yellow color with moderate head. Mildly sweet barley malt and lightly bitter herbal hops flavor. Nice body. Hoppy for a Koelsch - pretty good though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Originally reviewed: 2/22/11. 12oz bottle poured into a stange glass. Pours a very cloudy yellow/gold. A small white head caps it off right away, but then dissipates quickly. Lots of sticky lace left behind. The nose is fresh with aromas of grass clippings, lemon-lime, spring, floral tones.
The body is crisp and clean. Carbonation level spritzes it up, without fizzing the mouth up. Lots of lemon tartness, mild hop presence, slight earthy quality. This is a splendid "tame" beer. Perfect for the warmer months, but just fine any other time. Tasty, refreshing beer. Recommend.
