3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at Flanny’s in Tempe where it has a crystal clear deep gold body that supports a white head and leaves behind bits of lacing. The aroma offers up sweet malts, some sweet Pilsner like malts and then floral hoppiness. The taste starts a bit sweet with a dash of sweet pear like fruity esters. To midway it picks up some malts with a thin grainy edge and soft floral hops. If, and only if, this was a little less sweet and a bit more crisp this would be a pretty darn solid Kolsch. For an American made Kolsch it is one of the better ones I’ve had.

Klar gylden, hvidt skum. Medium fylde, en smule humle og græs? Skarp eftersmag. Ikke specielt interessant.

My bottle doesn’t say "yellowtail" anywhere, and the label looks different from this one, although the description is the same. Some wheat flavor. Grassy hops, but not enough of them. Low to medium bitterness. Dry and musty, reminds me of mothballs - this seems to happen in a lot of Central European beers, and apparently it can happen in domestics as well. Lacks the crispness of a pils. Unimpressive.

Good beer. Very drinkable. Not overly complex but finishes clean. Sweet notes. Doesn?t do anything unique though

Even for a pale ale it’s not that good. Not skunky dull flavor. Ballast Point needs to stick to the Indian style of pale ale.
