Pours a pale golden with a thin white head that doesn’t stay around long. Weak aroma reminds me of something American. :( Tastes OK, but nothing really stands out here. No intense malt or hop flavors, everything is subdued, with a hint of sourness. Had it for lunch, goes OK with food, but I’d rather have a pale ale. Not a repeat for me.

Bottle. Aroma is basement aroma with mild resinous hops. Appearance is clear gold with 1 finger-width white foamy head, mild sparkle and no lacing. Taste is medium bitter over mild fruity ester sweetness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, fair carbonation and bitter finish. Overall, not my cup of tea.

Pours a cloudy straw color. Has a slow forming white head. Some lacing.

Aroma is slightly bready. Pretty heavily fruity/citrusy. Lightly hoppy. It’s a very vibrant aroma.

Taste is hoppy, but it’s light and not too bitter. There’s a touch of lemon. The toasted malt is light, and not on the front.

Mouthfeel is crisp. It’s pretty well carbonated. It’s tasty. It’s drinkable.

Overall, this is excellent. I really like it. It’s somewhat of a medium between an IPA and a lager.

12 oz bottle. Golden with small white head. Grain, grass and a touch of fruity sweetness. I enjoyed this one.

Pale golden pour. The aroma is very light. Some subtle fruit and a little bit of corn-like malt character. Clean ferment (relatively). Warming intensifies the fruit. Okay - sort of cream ale ish.

Keg pour at Sedgwicks Bar, yellows golden pour with a nice white frothy head. Light in the mouth, taste of malt, not quite toast more like a white bread and it also sticks to your tongue. Nothing wow about it, but nothing you will complain about. Just going around successful and not singled out like a middle class office worker.

BeerBunker (930) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with an off white head. Aroma is of malt and grain. That’s about it. Taste is of malt, wheat, and not much else. There’s not a whole lot to it. Its not offensive, it’s just not much.

Maxbier (699) - Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2015
Draft. Yellow with thin white head.Aroma of ale yeast spiciness and hay. Slightly sour yeasty ale with a lemony heavy finish. True to the style and paired nicely with a brat.

This is an excellent American version of the Kolsch. Why? Because its the German version done well. Nice aroma, fruity aroma and taste all from yeast esters. Nice billowy head. Malty light refreshing great!
