Bottle. Fairly clear golden with a small sudsy white head. Nose is light hops, biscuits malts, grapes, light citrus. Flavor is a little bit more sweet and malty, a little heavier than I would like for a kolsch.

mixmasterob (891) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Mother Earth has made it to GA. Exited to see this one on the shelf, love the style. Bright golden pour with lively carbonation and a nice quick fading white head. Aroma was bittersweet with notes of orange and grassy hops. Flavors were crisp and dry with bready malt notes throughout. Some spicy Saaz like hops come through in the finish as well. Long lingering finish. Mouthfeel was in the medium range with a perfect carbonation level. On the high side of standard. Big fan of the style and this didn’t disappoint. Nicely done.
