    Clear yellow, small white lacing foam head. Weak aroma, like normal with a Kölsch, tasted perfect with my rack of ribs. Just a decent beer. (Houston 201501)

    This beer is a clear yellow/gold color with a thin white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Thin spotty lacing. Mildly hoppy and sweet aroma. Light-bodied and bubbly with a lightly hopped flavor with notes of straw. There is an underlying sweetness as well. The finish is light hops and grain, without much aftertaste. Overall this is watery and non offensive, a bridge between craft and macro brews.

    pours a clear, light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is fairly heavy on the wheat and biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same, with the addition of a little bit of grass from the hops. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

    Not bad for a simple blonde. Had a nice body and mouthfeel to it. Taste of clean malt and honey-esque flavors. I prefer my beers a little more complex and dark but for a light beer I was impressed by its flavor. Sampled @Ontario location.

    very mild and uncomplicated beer. nothing bad here, but too boring for my taste. didn't expect much and didn;t receive it. pale yellow in color with a hint of weet malt and hops in the aroma and flavor, slightly bitter finish.

    Golden colored and pretty much a middle of the road pale beer. Slightly sweet, mild hops and grainy. Very easy drinking and refreshing but not much to it.

    No real head at all. nothing except fizzle..subtle bitterness....slight honey aura around it...like a fresh flower lower bubble count version of bud light..a subpar kolsch.

    Light gold color. A medium bodied German Kolsch style ale. Mild malts and hops. Nice flavor. Mild taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is very smooth and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    had this one @ the BJ's in Irvine, CA. Nothing too exciting, just a simple session beer.

    I was much uninspired by this brew. Water, weakness. Not even a piss yellow for the color. little head. Not a good beer.
