Found this one bottled at Food Lion in Nags Head, North Carolina. I’m not a big fan of this style overall, so I think I rated this one a little low, but ultimately it’s a crisp, slightly fruity and mild sessionable beer, especially refreshing on a warm day.

Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Friday night tasting - 12 oz bottle. Light sparkling golden pour. Little bit of a white head. Crisp, grassy aroma, with a touch of pepper. Clean and crisp flavor some buttery accents, peppery notes. Mouthfeel is slightly carbonated and slightly dry. Decent Kolsch.

Damn you internet for eating my first review!
Ar: Clean, honey-malt aroma with a bit of honey.
Ap: Nice clear gold with a 3/4" fluffy white head.
T: Very nice, slightly sweet honey maltiness up front. The finish is mildly hopped and clean, with a nice lemony note.
P: Relatively thin with assertive carbonation.
O: My first Kolsch, this was very enjoyable. I can’t wait to knock a few of these back in the heat of the summer!

Tap at Blind Tiger Local Food Bash. Very pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is quite fresh and grassy with a bit of light pils malt crackery flavour. Fresh, balanced and quite tasty. The faintest kiss of estery character. Excellent balance.

Golden in color, slight haze with a thin head. Light malt and hops aroma. Good balance with the malt and hops this was easy drinking and finishes quite dry. Good hot day beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straw colored with minimum head and light lacing. Taste is typical grassy malt with a fair amount of bittering. Drinkable, but not memorable.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. 12 oz. Split with and courtesy of James. Pours a light golden, opaque hue with a modest, white, fizzy head. Aroma is initially of stale urine, but eventually opens up to some lemon. Stale sweat in there as well. Thin, watery body with a stale, slightly bitter/tangy body. Finish is calm and mellow. Good for the style, I guess, but I would never drink this again.
