3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is clean, quite lagery from the yeast. Smells like peachy fruit, some hops.
Flavours are clean and fruity with peach, some apricot, little hops. Clean honeyish malt. Quite refreshing. For a kolsch, I like this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber, not much head. Malty and slightly fruity character. More fruity budweiser taste with malts and high gravity-ish esters. A little heavier than a macro but that’s about it.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold pour with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malt, cereal, over ripe tree fruit, sweet grass and a little doughy yeast. Flavor is sweet and cereal malt up front, toast, apple chips light biscuit, sharp raw yeast and grassy and light floral hops. Light, slightly slick and syrupy feel, medium carbonation. Good stuff overall, not great, the bready yeast notes throw it a bit off though.

Typical of the style, but clean, nice. Malty, grassy aroma. The flavor follows. Sweet. The finish is sweet, light noble hops. Decent overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Thanks to Terri and Mark for sharing. Pours a blonde amber with a large white head. Aroma of Germanic yeast and multivitamins. Flavor is sweet with no bitterness. Can’t even detect aroma hops. Not fizzy enough for a summer beer. Just boring.

From bottle poured into a pint glass. Nice head and nice golden body. Taste exactly how you would expect a kolsch to taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Clear golden with white head. Aroma is honey, caramel malt, and grass. Taste is similar, with quite a sweet honey profile. A little too heavy for a kölsch, but a nice summer ale.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 Aroma - sweet hay. Appearance - appears darker than how it tastes, has look as if it should have fuller taste. It is a kolsch though, it?s not supposed to be super hoppy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at The Oak. Bright, clear gold pour with a small ring of head and a little lacing. Aroma is sweet, grainy malt with some flowers and hay. Tastes crisp and sweet. Honey candy, flowers, sweet cereal grain, and a light fruitiness. An above average kolsch.
