1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Maybe my palate was just off the day I visited Outer Banks brewing station, but this foray into the delicate German style missed the mark for me. The light golden yellow color was there, with a soft carbonation. The head dissipated much too quickly. The aroma had a nice lightly grassy smell, but the body was overly watery and missing the light cereal malt character indicative of a Kolsch. Finishes slightly dry.

Light yellow color - bubbly with a medium well-laced head. Aroma is crisp - notes of pils malt, greenish hops, and earthy yeast. Flavor is fairly clean and crisp, thin & slightly gritty body - slightly spicy and somewhat green.

Another one I tried in a sampler. Straw colored with a small white head. Light aroma with a touch of sweetness. Very smooth all the way through. Some malt and fruit with just a touch of hops. Very easy to drink and quite tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very refreshing brew! Pours hazy straw, with a little head, no lace of which to speak. There is a light wheat and lemon nose. Light pale malt with a Saaz hop bitter back and finish. It has a very light and crisp mouthfeel, but with a supporting body. Very quaffable and refreshing.... excellent session brew!
