Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that lasted a little while and had some nice lacing.
The aroma was super light of a grain malt, grassy and floral hops and a soapy yeast with a hint of lemon.
The taste was lightly sweet and mildly acidic with touch of lemon at first and slightly bitter with a large does of yeast and a hint of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a yeasty-citrus taste lingering on for a little while.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with the carbonation being rather soft.
Overall this was a nice light refreshing Kölsch. Although nothing special really stuck out it was quite solid for the style.

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.

4.1 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!

Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen. Pours a touch hazy, light yellow appearance with a white head. Aroma is very herbal and grassy with some lemon, corn, and straw. Medium light body. A little too sweet. Flavor is kind of corny and grassy with a little bit of apple. Not that great.
