Bottle. Pours clear gold with a fluffy white head. Bready/pale malty aroma, with some spicy and grassy hops. Well balanced flavor, very drinkable, with pale malts, grassy hops, and a light sweetness. Nice.

Very nice for the season. Light in color, yellow I guess with a small head. The aroma is malt, bread and wheat. Light flavor of malt with a nice hop bitterness makes it quite refreshing. Crisp clean finish leaves you wanting another.

Draft. Light golden pour. Definitely the newer kolsch, via the old ratings were of a better beer. Citrus, and earthy spice notes along with some bready malt notes. Alright.

12 oz bottle. Light golden color with relatively small head, and a small amount of lace. Nice smooth easy drinking beer. Light hop presence, but it’s absolutely dominated by a clean crisp finish. One of my new go-to beers on grass cutting day.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour was shimmering straw with 2 fingers of wispy white foam sitting on top. Nose is wet cement, malt, and a light tangy citrus. Taste is tangy/sweet citrus and dry, bitter hops that extend into a long finish that comes up sweet after about 30 seconds. Very strange, but is a very noteworthy aspect of this brew. It is probably my favorite part ... a finish that starts dry and bitter, but then turns tangy/sweet and wet.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle - $2.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, yellow-hued body with a goodly-sized, fluffy, white head.
Smell: Subtle, refined scent of light pale malts along with notes of everything from flowers to wheat dough to lemon peels to wine.
Taste: Mild taste of pale German malts with a faint sweetness. The thin hint of a single, solitary Wheat Thins cracker. Fresh floral, grassy hop character with sufficient bitterness. Little gulp of white wine with a lemon twist. Dry on the back half with a subtle spiciness gliding into the crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-high carbonation, keeping things brisk and active.
Drinkability: Crisp, refreshing and light without being entirely devoid of flavor. Recommended for good ole Summertime drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Kelly’s. Rich orange-gold with a thin white head. Nose and flavor show significant fruit, light hay and biscuit, and some lightly piney hop through the finish. Creamy, easy, and enjoyable, I could drink a gallon of this. Can’t say that about Hunahpu’s or PBR.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on tap at Kraftwork.
Pours a golden yellowish ripe banana color with lighter golden yellow hues when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger frothy white head with good retention, slowly fading into a lasting cap that leaves sheets of soapy lacing behind.
Pedestrian aroma with subtle hops and hints of peppery spice, light fruit and bready yeast.
Surprisingly chewy, full body with a nice crisp earthy hop presence up front along with some peppery spice that flows into a creamy mid palate with hints of grass, straw, light fruit notes and bready yeast. The dry hops linger throughout over the bready yeast, subtle malt and apple, banana and pear fruit notes into a dry finish. Much more complex and flavorful than expected. Quite a nice surprise. Recommended!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a large soapy white head. The aroma was light sweet and tangy malts with a touch of citrus. The flavor was tangy, malty and sweet with a light yeasty presence and touches of table sugar and citrus. The finish was long, sweet and tangy. Medium body. Solid.
