Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates down to thin sheet. Aroma is strong and full and I can't quite name everything that I can pick out in it. It's got definite notes of fresh grain and lemon, with spices. There is a creamy sweetness to it also. Like literal cream, or whipped cream. Just a little touch of sweet also. Flavor is spicy, hoppy--definitely Saaz, one of the few hops I can pick out by name--with some elagantly smooth maltiness. This brewery had irritated me in the paste with some pretty cocky labels. Some of their beers live up to their labels but others don't. This one lives up to billing. I have yet to have a Pilsener style beer that has near the depth of this one. It has the spicy hoppiness that Victory's Prima Pils does, but it really has a much better maltiness to it. I highly recommend.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 Single malt, single hop, singular exquisite taste! This is a great beer, and damned be he that says "enough"!

Poured into a pilsner glass. 3.0 A: Lightly hazed golden wheat color. Less than one finger of frothy white head that fell quickly and left no lacing. 5.0 S: Perfect! Dank grainy earthiness, hay, grassy hops, and an almost spiciness. Big, beautiful aroma. 4.5 T: Almost exactly what I want from the style. Lots of graininess, dank grassy hops, hay and earth, with a touch of peppery spiciness. Super clean. 4.5 M: Lighter body. Good almost spritzy carbonation. Super smooth and easy to drink. 4.5 D: I used to think very little of the style. This beer is changing my views. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-12-2011 21:13:52

A summer weather favorite. Both bottle and draught are EXCELLENT. I wish I could get German Kolsch beers this fresh. Bright golden with a just big enough head that holds on through most of the glass and laces nicely. Grassy hops and a nice fresh bitter bite on the back end let you know you aren’t drinking just any old yellow beer. That classic toasty corn-flake finish holds true to the best Kolschs in the world. The non-imperial ABV makes it easy to pound these in quantity.....5 of us killed a 1/6 bbl on a camping trip in about 5-6 hours. LOL

Be careful when pouring or the head will take over. Simple brew that proves the point of "less is more"! You can tell not a lot of ingredients go into this, but what is there balances extremely well

I had this from a bottle that seemed like it was just bottled. It was extremely fresh. Paired with a nice cheese, this beer was extremely bready, fresh Saaz hops are spicy but not over powering. The bready body was really nice. Clean golden body with a nice white head. Great mouthfeel. Creamy and bready. This was stupendous and apparently nobody ever drinks it fresh because it was fantastic! Ughsmash and DavidP were in my company and agreed.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 4/26/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a nice 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, herbal, floral, cracker, bread, grass, earth, and light pepper. Very nice and well balanced aromas with good strength; spot on for a kolsch. Taste of lemon, grass, pear, pepper, herbal, biscuit, floral, earth, and light toast. Lingering notes of light fruits, grass, herbal, biscuit, earth, and light pepper on the finish for a short bit. Great flavor balance and good complexity; with a nice amount of flavor for being under 5%. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming noticed at all. Overall this is an excellent kolsch! Nice amount of flavor and great balance; extremely smooth and easy to drink as expected. Very well done, and spot on to style. Great choice for a session beer, plus it is year round.

Tap. Pours a clear straw color with a nice white head. The aroma is of clean hop notes.. It goes down with a light body and slightly bready malt quality. It finishes with crisp hop finish. Pretty balanced, though. I normally do not like pilsners too much but this beer is quickly becoming a favorite.

Pours a hazy golden-straw with a nice fizzy white head that leaves some lacing in my glass. Flowery and grassy aromas, bready cracker like flavors. Light bodied with a crisp and carbonated mouthfeel, finishes dry and bitter. I must have gotten a really fresh bottle, this is a damn nice beer.

Onslow (1153) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2009
What a great brew for a hot summer day. Deep yellow pour with slightly cloudy body and respectable white head. Aroma of grain with very slight hops or citrus overtones. Crisp, clean flavor of light malts and pleasant dry finished with just a smack of hops at the end. Less can be more and more ins’t neccessarily better... Or, whatever. But for a refrshing summer brew this is great.
