Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a straw-gold color and was a touch cloudy with an average-sized foamy white head that had modest retention, light cling and average lacing. Its aroma featured notes of citrus, with lighter touches of pine and straw, along with some grainy hops and a light malt effect. Its taste was a mix of light sweet malty tones and a subtle citrus bitterness, but overall it was underdeveloped. The beer had a light, wet body with average carbonation and a modes mouthfeel.
On tap at the brewery. Slight haze on a pale beer. Somewhat flat. Easy all round in the attitude. Civilized, with manners. Yes, one of the more refined kolsch I’ve tasted. Right up any lager lovers alley. Could use a tad more co2 tho. blipp (9139) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours gold with a white head. Plain and grainy, with some faint sweetness. Relatively clean throughout. Could use a bit more of a hop profile. DiarmaidBHK (4785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Pours yellow with a thin white head. A it of fruitiness on the nose. A little bit of a leafy vibe on the tongue. Finishes clean and tight. Solid for style. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a golden hazy yellow color with a big white foamy head. Lots of fruit and grass and dryness in the nose. Palate is crisp and very fizzy with a nice bitter kick. Flavors of fruitiness up front with grass and straw in the finish.

On tap at pony. Really good for a kolsch but to be fair really tastes like a fresh citrusy ipa. Great flavor, finishes light jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Draft at pony with Brendan and Andrew. Pours a bright golden amber with light white lacing. Aroma is fresh citrus and grass hops. Mouthfeel is medium to thin, crisp and refreshing with notes of citrus hops and light pine. Awesome kolsch. hivemind (914) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 Tap @ Pony w Andy James. Kind of a weak, nondescript aroma. Grainy palate upfront but sweetens into subdued floral/fruity hops on the tongue. Decent in terms of drinkability but not very flavorful. BVery (10312) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Gold pour, white head. Mild grassy hops with bready yeast. Just okay. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2012
22oz Bottle, purchased at Discount Beverage - West Brattleboro, VT. Soft freshly-baked bread, pre-thunderstorm humidity, and hay stems. This is a very balanced and surprisingly good example of the style. Fresh, creamy smooth malts make a counterpoint against juicy, green Noble hop character. Plenty of mineral and some sweetness from a nip of alcohol. My critiques are that the malts are a little mushy and showing some age and that there’s a distant hint of DMS. The yeast is giving some appropriate white wine-like tones in the finish. Overall, very enjoyable, very drinkable and plenty of balanced flavor and texture to keep it interesting.
