3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma is crisp, some grain, grass, earthy, lemony citrus, mineral, light apple juice, a hint of sulfur. Taste is doughy grain, cracker, lemon, orange, grass, apple seeds, mineral, and light bitterness. Light body, nice carbonation, dry finish. Refreshing. A fair amount of subtle flavors going on, but I imagine this will disappoint people looking for an APA.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
19th March 2014 on the terrace of the san Diego Fish Market Bar, sat in the warming afternoon sun. Ordered this thinking it was a Pale Ale! The beer is light golden with a fading white head. Like almost all Kolsch it was almost odourless, this had mild bready notes in the nose but very little else. Refreshing but bland in flavour (again like most Kolsch I’ve tried and I have been to Koln a few times). A sunshine beer with not much going on, some hints of malty sweetness and a weak hop finish is the best I can come up with.

A typical kolsch style beer. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains, some citrus, and a little floral note on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some floral notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.355 bottle. Slightly hazy, orange color and a small, white head. Strong aroma, mostly sweet and sour with yeasty and hoppy notes at the forefront. Taste is sour rather than sweet but it doesn’t offend; citrus and flowers but later emerge some butter, leather, and cellar impressions characteristic for an Altbier. Light to medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is short-lived and also sour. All in all the beer is alright for a Kölsch but in general does not impress.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at a San Diego Padres game. Light bodied-yellow color...average white head...lots of carbonation. Aromas of light hops, grassy and a light yeasty sweetness. Taste is thin, watery, slight lemon with some floral hops. Minimal bitterness in a decently crisp finish. Not a bad beer to sip on at a ballgame while eating some nachos.

Ugh. Last time I pick a beer without checking here first. Saw pale ale. Assumed like IPA. Nope. This is a kolsch. Sawdust. Like a stronger Mgd. Good thing it was only in a mixed 6. Drain pour this some bitch.

Gold color with a white head. Aroma is a slight hoppiness and piney. Taste is smooth, just a hint of hoppiness. Nothing great. A blah beer.
