Bland style in my opinion, but a good brew within type. Cloudy gold color and minimal head. Light aroma, with no hops. Slight malt flavor with a touch of "tang".

On tap at the Blues, Brews and BBQs festival in St. Joseph, MI. Poured hazy blonde with a thin off-white head and a toffee aroma. This is a very light tasting kolsch. It is refreshing and creamy, but with no sweetness and just a little hop bitterness.

12oz bottle 7/8/09 (Siciliano’s Market-Grand Rapids)-Pours a slightly hazed darker golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains, sweetness, and malt. This light bodied brew tastes is of the same with some hops and some faint Belgian yeast. Not bad and quite refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden slightly hazed, white small bubbly haed to a layer, laces slightly. Aromas throw graininess initially, a touch of fruitiness with faint florals, refreshing sweetness. Very kolsch-like, fresh. Initial is light bodied, a bit grainy and dry with light fruitiness, minimal hop presence, cereal graininess. Quenching, a good body for a kolsch overall. Finishes a bit lingering sweetness, mellow.

750 from Michigan gents @ DLD 09. Pours a foamy straw yellow with fluffy white head. Smells light, yeasty, slight fruit esters, and a tiny bit of acidity. Taste is light, creamy, crisp, refreshing. I’m not big on this style at all, but this is extremely well done and flavorful.
