Tap. Straw with thin white head and light lacing. Smells grainy and a little wet/sour. Starts lightly sweet with a definite light hop finish. Not my style.

So this is what a Kolsch tastes like. And I like it ok. I'm an IPA/stout guy but just wondering a bit. Give a try.

On tap at the random Argentinian food themed beer bar the spouse found in Charlotte on New Year’s for lunch. Pours clear gold, nice head. Aroma of crackery pale malts. Flavor matches, bare hint of a floral hop note on the finish, just enough to balance with bitterness, and a very faint hint of pear. Subtle and delicious, well done here.

Alisa brought this one back for me from a trip to North Carolina. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow colow with a small soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy, yeasty, lemon and grass. The flavor was tangy and sweet with perfume, grass and a yeasty undertone. Medium length finish. Light body. Pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, purchased on 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Mostly clear golden color. Thin white head, kind of bubbly. Leaves good, thicker lace. Awesome bready, doughy malt. Kind of pilsner-like -- mildly peppery, and a satisfying bit of sulfur. Some corn. Mild bit of butteriness? Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Light to medium body, a touch thin. Light, but bright carbonation. Light slick finish. A pretty solid kolsch.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 12 oz. brown bottle into a Foothills glass.
A: Hazy almost greenish gold color. Inch high craggy head from a fairly gentle pour. Lots of visible carbonation. Laces in thin sheets as drunk.
S: Musty funky stuff. Grapey. Dirty clothes?
T: Still grapey with a slight floral hop bite. Wet cardboard maltiness. Distinctive and good.
M: Fantastic fine-beaded carbonation blankets the tongue. Slightly soapy going down but almost floats down the throat. Luxurious stuff!
O: Not much experience with the Kolsch style, but this is probably my favorite along with Reisdorf. This is very good and my go-to Kolsch. M.E. hit this out of the park!

Nice Golden pour with a mild white head. Aroma is grain with light lemon, some grassy notes and buttered toast. Taste is sweet malt, light lemon, grass, and biscuit. Body is light with light, prickly carbonation. Easy to drink and smooth.
