Poured from bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a small head. Crisp aromas of crackers, biscuits, grains, and noble hops. Not as higher toned and crisp as I’d like. Lighter bodied, but not extremely light. Balanced with a somewhat lacking feel and notes of crackers, noble hops, and grains. Didn’t seem fully like a kolsch. Instead it seemed more like a pilsner. Still, it’s a solid beer that is easy to drink

22oz bottle from Antioch Fine Wine and Spirits. Pours a crystal clear, bright yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma is bready, cereal, corn. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, cereal, just a touch of pine hops, with a light, sweet, malty finish. Very quaffable.

Bomber to taster brought by me to the group tasting. Looks decent; a transparent light gold with white lacing. Smells semi-sweet and doughy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but nothing special.

Has a very light wheat and fruity scent. Taste is a really light sweet flavor with some straw/wheat, good for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thanks St Fun!
Pours a glassy corn yellow with a frothy white head and a nose of corn biscuit, light grass, hay, and a touch of lemon. Flavor is grassed biscuit with a corn glaze on top. Watery mouthfeel. Nice, light beer for warm weather.

This is definitely just what it claims to be - a light summer beer for drinking on hot afternoons after working all day in the yard. It lives up to my minimal expectations but ultimately like more kolsches is just a bit meh.

Aroma / Appearance - The golden carbonated base suffocates the head that collapses like snow hitting warm pavement. All that remains is a thin trace of cream. Lemons, grains, and light hops are held together well yet do not catch my interest for long.

Flavor / Palate - The light mouthfeel takes a while to get a handle on. When it finally occurs the experience is lemons, low key hops (for a FFF release), and mild bitterness on the back of the palate. It has a few strengths. Even so after the first pint I was not really excited about finishing up the bomber.

Patrickctenchi (3075) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bomber: Slightly hazed gold with a short, white head. Aroma is slightly swet, grainy, barley malt. Light fruit and hops. Taste is light malt, slight hop bitter. Not exactly kolsch-y....more like a very good lager... Great flavour....crisp and refreshing.
