4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I recently tasted this very nice Kolsch in Greensboro at a beer festival and was liked it very much. The aroma was slight, but the taste was fresh, sweet and a nice finish. I will buy this ale and look forward to more tasting from Mother Earth.

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

Pours from the bottle a pale yellow with a tint of orange. The nose is sweet orange citrus, mouthfeel creamy, and the finish is clean and smooth, with a blend of floral hops and orange crush. I could drink a million of these. Wow, what a Kolsch.

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.

Light golden color. Aroma is fresh-baked bread. Yeasty and balanced, slightly nutty or plantlike flavors.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville, North Carolina. Bottled on: 08/10
Appearance: Pours a faintly hazed, golden body with a large, sudsy, near white head.
Smell: Sweetish, grainy blend of pale and pils malts with notes of hillside flowers and citrusy lemons.
Taste: Pale malts with some light sugary flourishes and hints of crisp grains. Soft florals tones and a taste of lemon verbena. Light bitterness, then a pop of acidity. Medium minerality throughout. Touch of honeysuckle precludes the dry, crisp, yet still smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation provides a modest bit of tingle on the tongue.
Drinkability: A fairly likable Kölsch. Good for the dog days of Summer, but suits me just fine during a coolish mid-afternoon in Autumn. Paired well enough with a grilled shrimp po’ boy.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. brown bottle into a Foothills glass.
A: Hazy almost greenish gold color. Almost no head from a fairly gentle pour. Minimal visible carbonation. No lacing except around glass edge. 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 very good. Luxurious stuff!
O: Not much experience with the Kolsch style, but this will persuade me to try a few others. This is very good and I will be buying more. M.E. hit this out of the park!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a crystal golden color that is quite similar to a glass of apple juice with a substantial, cream-colored head that leaves a sticky trail along the wall of the glass long after it has evaporated. The aroma is crisp and inviting, with a hint of hops that is earthy (and approaching musty) and a sweetness that I would again compare to apple juice or maybe a semi-sweet white wine. The flavor has more of a soft, earthy hop character and a bit of biscuit from the malt and yeast. The texture is quite smooth, but at the same time pleasantly tingly with its soft carbonation.

Beautiful clear light golden pour with a nice creamy white head. Light fruity nose with very light graham cracker malty notes and a whiff of floral hops. Nice fruity (grape?) and graham cracker flavor with a slight sweet finish. A tad dryer would make this beer even better. Light bodied with medium-high creamy carbonation. No astringency. Wow! One of the best kolsch style beers I’ve tried. Definitely plan on trying more from Mother Eartch Brewing Co.
