Smells good. Zesty and sweet. Tastes light with the hint of honey easy to detect. Smooth, not overpowering or underwhelming. Good beer for a hot day.

Boa, mas um pouco descaracterizada do estilo. Bem cítrica com notas de levedura, pão e malte. Corpo leve, final curto com pouco amargor

Had a glass over at Skallys .. . Pours a bright gold .. Head is solid .. . Mild crispness- good dose of honey and lighter was and hay .. . Drinkable and crush worthy .. . Make it a double! Two shoes you prick!

thetmaxx (870) - West Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Very pleasant, I expected a huge sweet bomb, but that was not the case. The honey seems to have taken the graininess out of the kolsch. Aroma is very clean and I seem to detect some kind of floral notes. Flavor is also really clean, better than a typical kolsch.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle, shared with Rockley. Medium gold, lasting thick white head. Clean grains with lovely fruity and floral accents, presumably the honey. Clean and very drinkable, not at all too sweet as I had feared. I’m not sure how true to style this is, but it was an excellent lighter beer.

nearbeer (4475) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 21, 2015
750 ml. Clear golden body has a steady stream of bubbles that support a thing disc of foam. Aroma of sweet dried grass, honey, toast and a touch of lemon zest. Tastes the same, with the earthy honey lingering the further I delve in to the glass. Near-medium bodied brew leans sweet and malty but manages to strike a decent balance. Tingly, medium-high carbonation isn’t my style but it never becomes explosive and definitely helps keep this one from getting sticky. Well-executed take on a kolsch, but just a bit less honey might have really made this one soar.
