On tap at Vintage - Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Nose is light core, grain, and a little honey. Same taste, with an emphasis on the corn. Light fruitiness. High carbonation that bites a bit. Like their Sister Golden Kolsch better.

On tap at Vintage Brewpub. Straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy and fruity with pale malt underneath. Taste is semi-sweet with floral and fruity notes and a clean finish.

Sine this is a kolsch there’s really not much interesting about it. The biggest compliment is that it is a clean sessionable beer with no flaws. This alone might make it worthwhile if you are tired of big hop and malt bombs. Otherwise a few other taps provide more complexity with relatively little tradeoff in ABV.

Aroma / Appearance - A light clean golden base forms the first impression. It is similar to every other kolsch I have tried which bodes well. The nose is hay soaked by a rainstorm, Kix cereal, and polished gold pieces. Overall it is nothing too exciting but has no big flaws.

Flavor / Palate - Tangy lemons and other citrus notes highlight a profile with a very narrow focus. The lack of flavor makes it easy to drink. It is not bland but at the same time doesn’t try to aspire to anything more than a basic session beer. I’d drink it in place of a cold lemonade.

8/10/12. On tap at the brewpub. Clear golden pour with a small off-white head. Plain aroma with a light fruitiness. Plain flavor of pale malts with just a touch of light fruitiness. Meh.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at Vintage, pours a very clear pale yellow with a thin soapy white head that diminishes very quickly, there is a light bready aroma with crackers and grain, the flavor is of cracker and bread with a crisp and clean finish, there is a nice fruit touch in the finish as well, easy drinking for a 90 degree day in Wisconsin.
