12floz bottle, it appears the freshness date has rubbed off (should be this summer’s edition, new label and all), paid about $1.50, and poured into a pint glass. It appears golden, and an airy head dissipates to a thin layer. Smells like normal cereal grains with a light touch of garden variety herbs. Palate reflects freshness, and is on mark for the style as it is crisp and flavor is of lightly toasted bread. This is a fine kolsh. bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 15, 2016
6 oz pour from bottle into clear plastic cup. Pours gold, hazy , beautiful carbonation, full fluffy head. Nose is very grainy and maybe a little herbal. Medium body and crisp. Taste is mild, leaning grainy and herby. Slight spiciness. ozzy70 (1283) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 30, 2016

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a average white head. Aroma is a decent syrupy lager malt with some white bread. Flavor is more of the lager graininess with a bit of tartness toward the end. Very clean and easy drinking beer with a decent pale malt profile. Nothing to get over excited about but this is one of the better domestic kolsch’s I’ve had. drjay44 (3851) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled white head, with slight lacing, over a gold (SRM 5) effervescent body......nose is light spice from the hops, hints of light colored fruits (pear, apple), light cereal, balanced.....taste is slightly sweet, with floral notes, light wheat, cereal, hints of apple, pear, mild hop spiciness, minimal bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation with slight acid. This beer is slightly too big and rich for a Kolsch which is a very delicate style. Perhaps a different yeast, or a lower fermentation temperature would correct this slight error.

The beer pours a very clear dark straw color with a small white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends lager yeast, pils malt, and a touch of resin hops. The major flavor is graininess, and the taste is a touch sweet and slightly umami with the typical sour lager bite. The palate fuses an average carbonation, medium-light body, and a thin and slick texture. justsayswell (285) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Clear gold pour, big off-white head that leaves decent splotchy lacing. Yeast, grassy hops, pale malt in the nose. Light bodied, kinda fizzy. Crackery malt, a little earthy, herbal hop. Crisp. Finishes Pilsner-like and a little dry. Decent. jcopeau (6) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAY 5, 2015 does not count
12 oz bottle (limited release, from Free State’s new Front Porch series) poured into a Free State pilsner glass. It’s crystal clear, light golden color, with light head that dissipates a bit quickly.
Clean, light, slightly spicy bread aroma. Flavor is a light bready malt, fruity and a bit peppery at the end.
This a crisp, refreshing quaff. I’ll be having more, until the limited release is gone.
