Bottle from Half Time. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly bready with a hint of citrus or spice. Near med body. Flavor is rather sweet, and bready, and there’s not a lot, if any, hop. Ok minimal hop. It’s not crisp and citrus like I recall Kolsch ales. Beats Bud Light by a long way tho.

This beer pours a clear golden color with a medium fizzy white head that evaporates steadily. Sparse small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt and mild hops. Light body with flavors of grainy malt and grassy hops, plus a touch of fruit. The finish is sweet and bready up front with a short lightly hopped aftertaste. Barely average overall. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2012
Do these guys need to make more shitty tasting boned ales? Buttery with a hint of water.

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear gold with a large white head. Crisp grain, light yeast. Medium bodied, empty, corn and grain. Light bitterness. Very drinkable, but a bit empty, more grain on the finish. DocLock (10689) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle from Craft. Poured golden canary colored with 1-finger white clingy head. Nose is pale malt, hops, fruity citrus. Tasted hoppy and citric, with some sweet bready corny pale malt, medium palate heft, and late apricotty notes. Not bad. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Very solid Kolsch. Clear light golden pour with a smaller white head. Nose is grain and light fruit. Palate is lighter but consistent with expectations for the style. Taste is light fruit, grass, and a nice little hop element that adds some character. I think this is pretty well done. b3shine (8874) - Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a fairly transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells mildly hoppy with notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Not bad.
