on tap poured into pint glass a: light straw color, fizzy head that has good renetion. nice bubbling carbonation s: not much aroma, what exsists is malt and spicy noble hop. clean t: begins slightly sweet on the tounge. Gives way to hop bitterness/spice. Well balanced m&d: light bodied, carbonation gives a good mouth

mmmbeer (1213) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2014
Glass at DH- served a transparent thin yellow, light carbonation. Aroma was almost nonexistent with just a light wafe of hops. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is a little overly sweet for me, finish is mildly crisp with some hops bite. Okey dokey.

I think we should have a name easily pronounceable by Americans. They don’t have to be pronouncing it correctly, even, but they shouldn’t be confused about how to pronounce it in their own way.

Yellow gold pour, very white head. Nose is all malt. Sweet. Medium bodied. Middle is vanilla and barley, slight grass hint. Finish is like barley pudding.

smaynard6000 (555) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2014
on tap. Dark yellow in color with average-sized frothy white head. Light grain aroma. Light bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet. Easy to drink with plenty of grain notes, a good session beer. A good choice for a Kolsch.

500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours clear pale gold, thick white head. Aromas are metallic and herbal. Taste has light sweetness, light astringent bitterness. Slightly overstays it’s welcome.

50cl bottle thanks to my robotic mates. Appearance - golden with gentle bubbles and a nice fluffy head. Nose - popcorn, with a hint of metallic. Taste - more corn with some lemon. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a light finish. Overall - really drinkable but doing not much more than that. Moderately pleasant.

Bottle. It’s a kölsch. No more, no less. One of the better ones. Grain with a slight malt character.
