COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Escaping from winter’s darkness, this hazy golden, unfiltered Kölsch style creates a fresh start. Our take on the classic hybrid style grom Cologne, Germany, combines the subtle fruit notes of an ale with the smooth crispness of a lager for a bright, refreshing brew to help escape those lingering cold days.

Not much going on here. Very bland. In the smell and taste. Could be quenching. Not the best though.

Leighton (13541) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle en route to JFK. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose has some biscuity pale malts, slight jammy citrus, grain. Light-medium sweet flavor with pleasant dry biscuits, corn bread, hay, citrus rind. Light bodied with average carbonation. OK balance to finish, some pale bread, more biscuits, lemon peel, dough, faint white grape, cereal. Pretty tasty overall.

Pours golden yellow with a white soapy head. Aroma of grass and grain with a bready flavor with hints of grass and yeast. Not bad.

mbgrayson (606) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours a cloudy orange, with tan head. Aroma of light citrus. Taste of a nice Kolsch, with citrus notes. Very refreshing and satisfying. Thumbs up.

NikkTwist (1913) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Cloudy amber gold pour that starts with a strong frothy white head. Lots of lace. Orangey witbier aroma. Tastes of sweet clementine marmalade on buttery croissants. Honey tangerines. More citrus and fuller body than I was expecting. Has some yeasty/bready notes that feel properly German, but not necessarily Kolsch. Misses the style, but not all that bad.

TATE (352) - Lubec, Maine, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a murky gold with almost no head. Aroma is lemony. The looks were not appealing but the taste is very refreshing with some lemon up front, malt in the middle and a dry end. Not a whole lot of flavor but a nice light spring beer.

dmac (4546) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2015
12oz bottle from Spirits Manahawkin. Pours a mostly clear gold body with a smaller quick fading white head. Aroma/flavor is mostly malts, bready, grains lightly sweet, fruity esters. Very boring beer.

demannu (143) - New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bready and slightly fruity. Very mild mannered in a lack luster way. Over all very simple and boring.
