Mild, grassy aroma. Pale yellow in color. Strong, sweet malt flavor up front...finishes like a pilsner but with smoother taste. Gets better as you continue.....solid.

Clear yellow pour with a white head. It has a lightly fruity, floral hop aroma. The light body has a smooth texture with lively carbonation. The taste is sweet with a quick, clean finish.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2086) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from the Southloop Binny's served in a footed pilsner glass. Brewed with Santiam hops it pours a light gold with great foamy lacing. Sweet bready vanilla bun aroma. A slightly rough mouthfeel and the taste is sweet fruity vanilla with some butteriness. Alright it is a refreshing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (3940) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Location: Draft at the Berghoff, 6/2/14

Aroma: The nose is fairly light, some grainy notes, bread, and a bit of fruit
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a decent sized white head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, grainy malts, lightly sweet, fruit, etc.
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has an okay mouthfeel, and solid drinkability
Overall Impression: I wasn’t overly impressed by this beer. I mean it isn’t a bad one or anything, just not all that exciting. You could session this, but you could also probably find a better beer to session.

Nephilium (1364) - Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Light bready malt aroma, with a hint of fruit. Pours a slightly hazy pale straw with a large white head. Slightly sweet flavor, with a touch of bread notes and a hint of apple notes in the finish. Not quite as crisp as I generally prefer my Kolsches. It’s a middle of the road Kolsch, nothing really flawed, but nothing outstanding.

Headbanger (3311) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2014
12oz bottle 1/10/14 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-40° in Lager Glass-Pours a clear light golden with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of malt, grains, and hops. Taste of the same along with more sweetness. This light bodied brew was actually pretty decent as I am not usually a fan of this style.

jhliesen (738) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Draft at Ginos East, 2013 ratings catch up -- this was my third choice as the other two beers were sold out. By the time the beer made it to the table, the head was gone, if there was one to begin with. Hazy yellow color. Hops and grass were more noticeable than the wheat aroma. Sweet taste up front and finished with hop bitterness, a bit thin, but had lots of carbonation.

I was quite impressed with this lighter offering. Had good sweetness to it. Lots of cereal notes. But not deadening at all. Very spry. I want to try the other variations now.
