3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of malts, grains, summer spices, and fresh cut lawn. Flavors are similar. Clean and crisp palate. Not a pale ale but a decent kolsch.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOD 177/14. Pours a clear light amber (golden). Above average head volume, excellent lacing and retention. Light nose of fruity esters and yeast over a biscuit base with a hint of spice. Almost light medium body with a nice slick texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with just a touch of effervescence in the finish. The flavor profile is quite nice for a Kolsch. Above average intensity for the style, well balanced and fairly complex. It begins with a mix of light fruit (banana, pear) that flows into a somewhat crisp biscuit sweetness. The middle is a very mild hop bitterness that is herbal in nature that yields to a slight note of pepper like spice. The finish is a slow fade of herbal bitterness and biscuit that ends with a touch of dryness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can (12 oz). Bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Should be approximately 1½ month old.
Appearance: Clear golden with a medium quickly diminishing off-white head and some lacing.
Aroma: Pils malt, some fruitiness, light herbal presence and metallic notes.
Taste: Cereals, light fruitiness, herbal notes and metallic presence.
Palate: Light to medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Metallic finish.
Overall: So boring and generic that’s it’s not even easily drinkable. Extremely disappointing take on a Kölsh from a usually good brewery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden with low-medium light beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of fruits, flowers, malt. Taste is of fruits, flowers, bitterness. Palate: Light body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Ok. I would have liked more hops. This beer, complex? Not in my opinion. Still decent, but I would not buy it again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of grain and fruits, lightly spicy. Full-on pilsener malt. Taste is lightly sweet and crackery, pretty much a pale lager. Not sure why but I was expecting a pale ale... maybe they should make their packaging a little clearer that it is a kölsch after all. Body is light and carbonation high and prickly. It is never watery, though. Overall a fair kölsch I guess...
