750 ml bottle shared with a pal in banff. Cloudy yellow pour with Apple smell. No distinctive taste to me...maybe a little citrus? Smooth and easy drinking.

Wasn't expecting much, and this kolsch didn't raise them. Pours an ugly slightly cloudy yellow with a white head. Smells nice, bit of honey and citrus. Taste has honey upfront, but then turns watery, with a lemon seltzer or soda taste in the finish. Had in the bottle.

On tap. Honey Yellow gold with a small head and nice lacing. Sweet pleasant nose of hop, yeast and malts. Surprisingly light, crisp sweet taste that has a honeyish lingering finish. Pretty cool beer.

slowrunner77 (7196) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 22, 2014
solidly in the "very good for the style" category. light and crisp with well done light honey in the nose and flavor, but other than that it would not be very interesting.

Light and smooth, with a nice creamy mouth feel, I’m guessing from some wheat. The honey flavor and aroma is mild, but definitely present. I think any more and it would have been distracting, any less and it would have not been noticeable enough. For someone who likes bold beers, I wasn’t overwhelmed by this beer, but it was a nice refreshing beer to enjoy on a hot day.

Beerdedone (2978) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma of grass, grains and soft honey. Flavor of pale malts, grassy hops, honey, grains and had a hint of some fruitiness.

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy gold without much head. Aroma is light and sweet, as is the pallet. Taste is sweet but finishes slightly bitter with a tiny is aftertaste. Still pretty good.
