found in a microbrew pack. Decent for the style, but mostly middle of the road type beer. Very little hops, but enough flavor.

hmm, I thought alcohol was illegal in Utah -- guess not! This is a very light and unsweet beer, great as a summer refresher. Nice medium golden color with hints of hefeweizen floating sediment (the kolsch style can resemble anything from an amber lager to a wheat beer, so this isn’t surprising). Aroma is very weak and shows some corn elements of macro-brews. However, the aroma doesn’t pervade the other aspects -- this beer has a great light mouthfeel, carbonation and flavor not unlike what one would expect from an unsweetened ginger ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pale straw color, very clear, fairly large foamy white head, extremely light carbonation, very attractive lacing. Lemon grass aroma, very slight vegetable as well. Unfortunately a fairly strong overcooked vegetable flavor right up front, slightly rubbery too. A bit below average on body and mouthfeel. Fairly crisp finish, very slight lemony tinge at the exit, grainy, but still with an overcooked vegetable wrapped in a ballon like flavor on the exit. WTF!

Hazy straw colour. Strawlike aroma with slightly earthy hop notes. Light noble hop character. Moderate bitterness. Slightly husky malts. Somewhat wet finish, with light lingering dryness.

Spicy and Citrusy, there is a very interesting tasting Kolsh. This is a very good beer and I recommend it to everyone.

Just like advertised, reminds me of the original Kölsch from Cologne. Tastes pretty great actually

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Pours a clear bright light golden with a large white fizzy head. Aroma is a sweet light grain. Honey and german/belgian yeat notes. Flavor is consistant. A smooth light woody flavor. Soft and slifhtly sweet. Very drinkable. (Sorry Ontario...)
Feel is a little chalky which surprised me for its crystal clear appearance.
Plain and pleasant.
Thanks Buck Dich for the bottle.

Of what aroma there is, grassy and flowery hints come through; looks like bud light; sweet slightly tart flavor with some lightly spiced hopping, somewhat grainy and dry in the finish, thin and watery body without being very "drinkable".

Thick foamy head. Pale golden in color and well hopped. Hop bitterness is high. Hop aroma and flavor very evident. Medium-bodied beer.
I think they stopped making this brew. I haven’t seen it in quite some time, though I haven’t looked for it.

Beautiful pour. Golden with a thick head.
Lacing the whole way down the glass as you drink.
Noticeable hoppiness, but far from overwhelming, just right i’d say.
Very crisp, & clean, finishes dry.
