medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lively carbonation, medium-full body but goes down easy. Really creamy texture, spicy going down, then a very bready finish and aftertaste.

Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC during an evening of heavy drinking. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam of a head. Nose is all pale malts, white bread. Medium to strong sweet flavor, very bready, but not cloying at all. There are notes of faint berries and light bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish, faintly toasty, more bready malts, mostly white bread. Very sessionable lager. Yeah, very drinkable.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Not nearly as good as some of the native kolsch styles I’ve had in the past, but a pretty good effort from this side of the ocean. Properly dry and a nice foamy head are two of the good points I can recall.

First beer of this style I’ve ever had. Not too bad! Definitely going to try some more of them!

Kolsch styles just don’t get enough love. They lack the huge hop flavor or high alcohol of the imperial styles, choosing instead to go for a more subtle and mild flavor. This one is rather grassy on the nose and light citrus on the tongue. Mildly sweet and infinitely drinkable.

The first time I had this beer I loved it, definitely one of the smoothest beers. And instantly became my mom’s favorite. But the 2nd time I had it, it tasted completely different, like a skunk beer, and i kept drinking it to see if I can get the taste I did the first time. So I’m not sure how I rate it, I would love to try it again sometime.

Oh sir samual adams how long its been since I have tried a beer from you! Pours that average lager look or light clear amber with an almost fizzy creamed head. Aromas of light jasmine, slight caramel, light grass, and light hay. Flavors are lightly grassy/hay, slight corn, slight grain, and light hint of floral(hard to see it as jasmine on the palate). Theres a light bitter/dry finish with a grain/corn like aftertaste. Bland mostly. Adams sure does have a wide variety to offer. I still remember this being one of the first companies I started trying for micros aside from the masses of lagers. Thank you samuel adams for being the first crossroad into micros!

Pours a light gold with a white head with no lacing. Smells of sweet malt and grass and floral notes. Not much on the taste besides sweet honey . Mouthfeel is light and low carbonation. Not a very good beer, close to a drain pour.
