On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Soft grain on the nose, crisp and sweet. Medium bodied, grainy and sweet, crisp and with a light citrus hint. Finishes with a touch of sweetness, malt and grain. Easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good kolsch is a great beer and this is a good kolsch. Wonderful peppery hops over a dry malt. I’d totally stock this for football drinking if it were legal in this state.

A sweet beer with light hop and excellent mouthfeel for ABV. Excellent aroma of grain and honey sweetness. Thin fading head. Probably the best Kolsch I’ve had in the US.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Atlanta, Ga. - on tap at the brewpub. Light golden pour, a bit of murkiness, with a crisp snow white head, decent film of lacing. Aroma has a hint of vanilla with some buttery accents. Flavor is similar in fashion with the some honey sweetness thrown in for good measure. Buttery accents have a bit of nuttiness along with it. Crisp and quaffable is the mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

had a lot of these in Koeln and many try to get this delicate and light style right. This is a good example, perfume and light esters but a clean nice ale beneath. Only a tad thin.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Nearly clear, gold body with a smallish, white head.
Smell: Strong top note of grain, like a just-opened malt sack. A little hinted sweetness, a little grape ester on deeper sniffs.
Taste: Sweetish, honeyish cereal maltiness. Lightly husky, crusty breadiness. A light spice, a sliver herb, and an altogether faint fruitiness. Modestly bitter. Drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.
Overall: Decent enough, would prefer a livelier effervescence. Can’t we go back to their 1st generation Kolsch?
