This is how a summer brew should smell. I little hoppy, I little malty, and a little lemony. Pretty decent.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of citrus and honey. The flavor is a smooth decent Blonde: citrus, some earthy grains, light bitterness in the finish. Some almost tropical notes at times, the lengthy dry earthiness is a bit rough. Decent.

Clear straw color with a fringe head and streaks of lace. The taste doesn’t quite work: hops and lemon in concert combines bitter and sour in a somewhat unpleasant way. Drinkable, but hardly more. Not recommended.

honestly not a bad blond, just kinda there. a bit of lemon hoppy twang up front, a bit bitter on the back end with a little cereal brightness in the back. again not bad, just not very interesting.

Pours a hazy gold. Smells of fruit, malt and citrus. Taste citrusy with a touch of hops. Well balanced, finishes nicely.

Light and crisp with a dry, bitter, yeasty flavor. Hints of citrus zest, grape, and floral taste as well.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, brighter golden with a well-retained, sticky white head. The aroma picked up honey-kissed bread and lemony notes, with accents of grass and hay.. very fresh and well-balanced. The flavor found similar stuff.. mostly bready malts at the core, with lemon zest, grassy bitterness, and fairly salty character around.. salt, earth, and lemon zest on the crisp, refreshing finish.. tasty stuff. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation.. clean, crisp, and refreshing.. excellent example of the style.

Draft at paddy longs. Pours hazed golden yellow with white head. Aroma has a pleasant balance of grain and fruity yeast esters, banana, lemon, biscuit and pepper. Flavors are sweet honey grain with spicy and fruity esters, long lingering pepper that balances the initial sweetness making it crisp, refreshing, dry, and begging for another sip. Isn’t this a kolsh?
