Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that lasted a little while and had some nice lacing.
The aroma was super light of a grain malt, grassy and floral hops and a soapy yeast with a hint of lemon.
The taste was lightly sweet and mildly acidic with touch of lemon at first and slightly bitter with a large does of yeast and a hint of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a yeasty-citrus taste lingering on for a little while.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with the carbonation being rather soft.
Overall this was a nice light refreshing Kölsch. Although nothing special really stuck out it was quite solid for the style.

12oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Atlanta during a HSS conference. Pours a bright bubbly gold with a lively head of tight white soapy bubbles. Aroma is crisp and clean. Grassy and grainy. Flavors are sharp and biting bitterness with just a bit of sweet grain character. Nice and super drinkable.

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. RJT

So this is what a Kolsch tastes like. And I like it ok. I'm an IPA/stout guy but just wondering a bit. Give a try.

On tap at the random Argentinian food themed beer bar the spouse found in Charlotte on New Year’s for lunch. Pours clear gold, nice head. Aroma of crackery pale malts. Flavor matches, bare hint of a floral hop note on the finish, just enough to balance with bitterness, and a very faint hint of pear. Subtle and delicious, well done here.

Alisa brought this one back for me from a trip to North Carolina. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow colow with a small soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy, yeasty, lemon and grass. The flavor was tangy and sweet with perfume, grass and a yeasty undertone. Medium length finish. Light body. Pleasant.
