I love this ale. a very nice and light taste with a slight hint of hops. the malt flavor is subtle and this ale very drinkable. highly recommend this if you like an ale less filling and long on taste.

Transparent golden yellow with a white head. Bready grain aroma. Flavors are noble hops up front followed by a nice Pilsner malt flavor. Great balance. Very well made.

22oz bottle picked up in Asheville. Pours a true to style hazy golden-tan, with a thin, respectable head and some lively rising carbonation bubbles. Creamy, classic beer taste, really well executed. Soft and delicate, I get a little brewhouse butter in the aroma, very faint. Minty orange hop balance. Clean. This is a really great stateside example of the style, refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from Bruisin Ales in Asheville. Light gold with the faintest haze and a nice white head of medium size that hangs around for a while and leaves a respectable lace. Some hints of hay and grass and gentle whiffs of floral and spicy hops demand attention. A healthy effervescence helps clean the palate, and the body is not as light as I would expect. The overall effect is a crisp yet satisfying mouthfeel. Light malty flavors bring sweetness up front, and the softest of bittering comes through in the finish. This is actually one of French Broad’s better efforts in my opinion. Well balanced, refreshing, easily drinkable.

Beer #15 Asheville trip. Liked the fact that they just came out and called it a Gateway beer. Having said that, it is a nicely done Kolsch. Clear, golden, nice head. Aroma is biscuity malts. Flavor is a match, just a faint hint of floral hops. Pleasant, well made brew.

Clear and pale yellow color, not a huge head, but good carbonation. Faithful to the kolsch style.

Draft at the brewery taproom during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear yellow with a creamy, white head. Mildly effervescent. Good cereal character, white bread, mild dough. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, pretty clean, with doughy white bread, more cereal, minimal bitterness. Tasty. Nobody showing much love for this kolsch. But I like it.
