I recently tasted this very nice Kolsch in Greensboro at a beer festival and was liked it very much. The aroma was slight, but the taste was fresh, sweet and a nice finish. I will buy this ale and look forward to more tasting from Mother Earth. ordybill (1738) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 26, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smells of grain and fruit
Appearance- Pours a murky straw yellow. Has a small white head.
Taste- Tastes of malt and grass, real flavorful.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- An excellent example of a Kolsch. NCBeerBoy (15) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2010
aroma is sweet and grassy, a crystal clear yellow color with white frothy head that reduces quick but good lacing, a light touch of fruity sourness, a medium body, creamy texture and good carbonation, very long, soft and pleasing finish. I really like this beer and could drink these several of these at a sitting! This is my new summer beer. Thanks Mother Earth

Pours from the bottle a pale yellow with a tint of orange. The nose is sweet orange citrus, mouthfeel creamy, and the finish is clean and smooth, with a blend of floral hops and orange crush. I could drink a million of these. Wow, what a Kolsch. mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Mother Earth has made it to GA. Exited to see this one on the shelf, love the style. Bright golden pour with lively carbonation and a nice quick fading white head. Aroma was bittersweet with notes of orange and grassy hops. Flavors were crisp and dry with bready malt notes throughout. Some spicy Saaz like hops come through in the finish as well. Long lingering finish. Mouthfeel was in the medium range with a perfect carbonation level. On the high side of standard. Big fan of the style and this didn’t disappoint. Nicely done.

Light golden color. Aroma is fresh-baked bread. Yeasty and balanced, slightly nutty or plantlike flavors. malvrich (319) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 12 oz. brown bottle into a Foothills glass.
A: Hazy almost greenish gold color. Inch high craggy head from a fairly gentle pour. Lots of visible carbonation. Laces in thin sheets as drunk.
S: Musty funky stuff. Grapey. Dirty clothes?
T: Still grapey with a slight floral hop bite. Wet cardboard maltiness. Distinctive and good.
M: Fantastic fine-beaded carbonation blankets the tongue. Slightly soapy going down but almost floats down the throat. Luxurious stuff!
O: Not much experience with the Kolsch style, but this is probably my favorite along with Reisdorf. This is very good and my go-to Kolsch. M.E. hit this out of the park!

12 ounce bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville, North Carolina. Bottled on: 08/10
Appearance: Pours a faintly hazed, golden body with a large, sudsy, near white head.
Smell: Sweetish, grainy blend of pale and pils malts with notes of hillside flowers and citrusy lemons.
Taste: Pale malts with some light sugary flourishes and hints of crisp grains. Soft florals tones and a taste of lemon verbena. Light bitterness, then a pop of acidity. Medium minerality throughout. Touch of honeysuckle precludes the dry, crisp, yet still smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation provides a modest bit of tingle on the tongue.
Drinkability: A fairly likable Kölsch. Good for the dog days of Summer, but suits me just fine during a coolish mid-afternoon in Autumn. Paired well enough with a grilled shrimp po’ boy. ronaldtheriot (1919) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Endless River has a very thick, white head, a hazy, golden-straw appearance, and lots of heavy lacing splotches left behind. The aroma is of pungent, spicy hops and pale barley malt. Taste is of sweet, biscuit malt, soda cracker, and bold, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is low-medium, and Endless River finishes crisp and highly drinkable.

Pours a crystal golden color that is quite similar to a glass of apple juice with a substantial, cream-colored head that leaves a sticky trail along the wall of the glass long after it has evaporated. The aroma is crisp and inviting, with a hint of hops that is earthy (and approaching musty) and a sweetness that I would again compare to apple juice or maybe a semi-sweet white wine. The flavor has more of a soft, earthy hop character and a bit of biscuit from the malt and yeast. The texture is quite smooth, but at the same time pleasantly tingly with its soft carbonation.
