3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow gold. Nose is mild; a bit yeasty/funky. Mild palate has basement/yeast flavor. Not in a particularly bad way. Its not the best, but its easy-drinking and not offensive.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Really an odd malt bomb considering the style. It is by no means REALLY malty but it might be the most malty kolsch i’ve ever had. Pours a dark almost amber color with no head and very few bubbles. aroma is malt forward with a hint of the expected kolsch yeast. taste is sweet with caramel malts and no noticeable hop presence. palate is a bit sticky and not super refreshing. overall it is a slightly unexpected and not entirely welcomed take on the style.

Bottle at Columbia event. Pours a clear golden color, aroma biscuity sweet and malty. Medium liveliness, finish subtle and slightly sweet. Not the best kolsch I’ve had, not the worst.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Standard yellow color in the glass with a small head. There is fruit on the nose like apples and apricots. Taste has more fruit mostly pears. Also some lemon zest. There is also a resin like finish which makes it smooth.

Nice, easy to drink Kolsch. True to its name it’s light and refreshing. Probably about the right amount of flavor for the style. Not great, but okay for the right time.

Pours a pale yellow. Flavor is interesting but nothing to brag about. Weak aroma, weak taste.

16 ounce tap at Eastlake Bar & Grille in Seattle. This stuff with mediocre in several categories. It was a pale pilsner yellow. No foam, nor lacing, nor any favorable aroma besides natty light sort of gas. As it got warmer due to my lack of motivation to drink it, it tasted more metallic and less appealing.
