3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle poured into a mug.
Pours a crystal clear deep good with a fluffy two finger white head. Head retention is awesome as some sort of head lasts all the way through the drink. Lacing leaves a bit to be desired, though.
Aroma is very bready with some light touches of caramel along with floral notes from the hops. Very soft and delicate and true to the style.
The flavor is also quite bready with touches of biscuit. Grass from the hops is subtle but noticeable. Bitterness is on the light side with a very soft, silky mouthfeel. The finish is a touch sweet but drinkability is still high.
Overall, this is a very nice kolsch and a great lawnmower beer. If this were readily available and cheap I would drink it constantly.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2014 Aroma: Mostly dried hay with a good complement of grass/herbs; maybe a touch of honey sweetness, but this is by no means sweet overall. Appearance: Rich gold pour with a foamy white head that dissipates into a white, patchy ring; carbonation is visibly lively. Flavor: Starts out solidly with hay and moves into a lingering, but not strong, grassy perfume toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, lingering semi-sweet finish. Overall: Pretty clean lager, but not a particularly noteworthy one. Pretty fresh bottle as well (best by 1/15).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl green bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a white head. The aroma offers up corn and lime and a light floral hop note. The taste starts with a crisp hop bitterness coming from lemon to lime citrus and floral hops. As the hop bitterness fades toward the finish I’m left with a mild candied floral soapiness that distracts from the experience.
