22oz bottle. Nose is sweet and tempting, but the taste doesnt live up. A bit boring Not bad just Not up to my FFF expectations especially considering they bottled it. Chicago’s own Metropolitan does ths stye better imo. Havent really tried too many from the Germans by comparison. Still much preferred to bud or miller as a lighter beer. Cool label at least.

hotstuff (4285) - Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Rated on 01-29-2013 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium semi-fizzy white head with a short retention, yellow transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is grain malt, crisp and earthy hops. The flavor is grainy malt, light hops and semi-sweet. The mouthfeel is smooth, watery and thin. This beer is light bodied. This beer lacks character and the flavor is rather boring and disappointing.

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2014
Draft - Light sweet citrus. Clear pale gold with a rich white frothy head. Light sweet citrus and some light sweet grains. Sweet and refreshing, lots do citrus and unlike any in this style. Still tasty though.

Aroma is pale malts, earthy and Kolsch yeast. The flavor is fruit, pale malts, grainy notes and a beery/slightly sweet finish.

Block (1520) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2014
A very regular beer that seemed lackluster compared to the other, bolder offerings. Smooth, crisp, clean, somewhat boring.

bigda83 (284) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Pours a clear straw color with small white head. The aroma is wheat, straw, and grass. Taste followed the nose and also had some saltynotes in it. Nothing fancy here, but I didn’t mind it for a very light and refreshing beer on a warm day.

22 oz bottle poured into a weisse glass. Bottled 6/6/14. Clear straw yellow with three fingers of off-white head. Aromas of citrus, wheat. Tastes of citrus, sweet malt, wheat, yeast. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation. Pretty nice for the style.

djd07 (3896) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear yellow with small off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is strong wheat, honey, and hay. Thin mouthfeel with sweet wheat, grass, honey, and light dry finish, decent.

Mild , reminds me of a lager/Wit. Creamy beer, low amounts of flavor. Not the best from FFF.

Bomber poured into a nonic. This beer is clear, bright amber in color with a thin white head that settles to a ring. Aroma includes pale malt, grass/hay, honey, and corn. Taste is moderately sweet cracker, biscuit, honey, and grass, initially. There is a lightly hop bitterness on the swallow. Light bodied, moderate but assertive carbonation, smooth barely thick texture, dry, crisp finish.

Beerman6686 (4713) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2014
This one poured a light orange color with a white head. Aroma was of light triple c hops, caramel, and pale grain. Falvor was similar, not particulay kolsch like in hop or malt profile. Ok.
