3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 Bottle. I’m not a Kolsch fan, but this is a nice example of the style. It’s refreshing, grainy, and would work well as a mid-session palate-cleanser or yard brew. Well made even if not my thing.
Rerate: this beer is making me a kolsch fan. Crisp, clean, excellent finish. The perfect "light" craft beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Float on the grainy tide of Endless River through a slightly hazy golden current whilst the frothy head forms ample eddies of thick white lace on the glassy shoreline. Aroma shows grassiness, cereal and a little cattiness. Slightly thin bodied with a lightly tart lemony finish. A good lawnmower beer and easy session brew. A little more hop character then others of its ilk.

Pours a soft straw yellow with a one finger of frothy white head. Nose is mildly sweet, some grassy hay character, bready malt, not much character. Flavor is crisp, bready sweetness, corn, mild grassy hop bitterness. Palate is soft with a mild carbonation, a bit grassy.

Kolsches are kind of difficult to rate for me - Mainly because their charms are hidden and require concentration to really appreciate. I liked this one, though - nice mix of subtle grainy notes and a touch of light fruity notes. I could probably drink a lot of this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
aroma is sweet and grassy, a crystal clear yellow color with white frothy head that reduces quick but good lacing, a light touch of fruity sourness, a medium body, creamy texture and good carbonation, very long, soft and pleasing finish. I really like this beer and could drink these several of these at a sitting! This is my new summer beer. Thanks Mother Earth

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle- Pours a moslty clear golden with a nice big white head. Aroma is on the hoppy side for a kolsch - fresh grassy hops, light crackery pils malt- not as doughy or bready. Flavor is light clean crackery malts, some mineral, lemon hints, grassy hops and a clean crisp finish.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2011 pint at Village draft house. Ok aroma, sweet, fruity, cereal. Clean orangy gold color, small head with minor lace. light sweetness, lightly bitter. light body, thin feel, average carbonation, crisp bitter finish. Maybe a little fruity for what I remember a kolsch being, definite lawn mower. hit all the proper points though
