2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
a clear yellow pour, this beer is a bit light on flavor. I’ve certainly had better examples of the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden pour with small white head that diminished quickly. Aromas of malt and light in the hops. Flavor is crisp and clean with good balance of malt and hops. Not a great beer, but pretty true to style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a crunchy one. The grains are evident from the nose to the tongue. The pour left a nice frothy head, like the cream sitting above lemon merengue pie. Some aroma of hay and lemon, with the flavor of cheerios. Finish was mild, as hop levels are muted. Clean, clear and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice mellow light dough taste with mellow yeastiness and a light straw taste that’s clean clear, crisp and refreshing. Man, I could drink a bunch of these.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very clear medium gold with a fleeting wisp of head. The beer was just put on and the brewer said he needed to up the carbonation, so that part may change for others. The malt flavor is surprisingly strong, a little bread in with the straw here. This makes for a better taste, but perhaps makes it a little less drinkable and less crisp. Light bitterness in the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, shaker glass. Grain, light bread malt (L); earthy hops (VL). Pale gold body with a quickly diminishing frothy, white head. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Grainy finish, but on par with other Kolsch's I've had. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: it doesn't rock my world but it makes for a decent enough session.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at 5 Seasons. This beer had a small sized white head that was creamy and smooth with fine-small bubbles that mostly dissipated. The body was softly carbonated and transparent with a yellow-gold hue. The nose was hoppy and also of banana. The flavor was lightly bitter tasting and mildly hoppy. The mouthfeel was smooth and this beer was light bodied with a good lacing.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 32. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Atlanta Georgia. Dennis, the owner, treated us royally. He kept bringing sample after sample to our table. We were given every courtesy and treated very well. Thanks to their fine staff. This brew poured a medium sized head of white colored long lasting fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a uncarbonated transparent yellow colored body and an excellent lace. The aroma was very mild and almost non-existant. It had a smooth slightly tingly mouthfeel and a mild malt hop flavor.

Nice hop aroma. Light body with a good balance between bitterness and the subtle malt flavor. A good attempt.
