This pours a very clear yellow in a small glass. White head of medium bubbles and lots of lace w/ a grain aroma. This is a bit hoppier than I’d expect for the style and the extra bitterness might be a nice surprise for Pilsener fans but I don’t think it quite worked. A bit of lemon citrus from the hops compliments the overall grainy taste.

As far Kolsch style ales go, this one isn’t bad. A nice bit of refreshing malt flavor just creeping in. A decent beer.

A: The pour is a clear golden straw color with a nice creamy white head.
S: A somewhat light nose that is fairly grainy with some hints of bread. A bit of a yeast, citrus peel, and floral and citrusy hops as well.
T: Fairly bready without being all that sweet. A mild hop bitterness to it with nice floral notes, citrus zest, and a nice clean and crisp flavor.
M: The body is light to medium with a lively carbonation.
D: A nice well done, simple, and refreshing kolsch. Probably the best beer on-tap this day as well.
