3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich and fine beer with a good body and balanced bitterness. Something more powerful than the German originals from Cologne.

On tap at the San Diego Airport on 7/26/2013. Not bad as far as the airport options go, but not all that impressed either. Pretty thin, not quite measuring up to my typical pale ale standards. Definitely better at the beginning when it was colder.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Best before 25.03.14. Pours a clear/slightly hazy yellow with an off-white head. Decent lacing. Sweetish hoppy aroma, a bit grainy, note of grass. Tart to sour note as it warms as well as a slight berry sweetness. Feels unbalanced. Flavour is hoppy, sweetish, tart and a bit fat. Cereals. Bitter finish with a lingering light tartness and a grassy/hoppy note. Overall so-so. Not really bad, but not that good either. The tart notes feels misplaced. Had expected more from this. 25.09.13.

Pale Ale? Pilsner? In between? Probably the latter. Has a slight sweetness to it which fades quickly and is replaced with a mild but slightly bitter aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper with very little to no head. Rather muted aromas of hops and malt. Flavor is a balanced malt sweetness, with some fruitiness. A bit watery in the mouthfeel, but not a bad beer by any means.

Canned as the original. Some malts and fruitiness. Pretty decent overall but not really like other kolsches.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, mine is 5.2% abv. Nose dusty pale malt with a little wheat, plenty of bright lemony citrus and a touch of dusty-bready yeast. Pours clear light yellow-golden with a large and rocky bright white head. Taste of pale/pilsner malt with delicious bready finish, lightly crisp light body but not watery, pulls in some grain from the malt and some bite from the hops, faint dusty yeast with chalky character. Light bitterness, sweet to start and dries out only a little bit, still pretty repeatable. Hate to say it, and I really mean it, I personally hate to say it, but this is cleaner and better than most of the Kölsch brewed in Germany, even if it’s more of a golden ale. Kudos!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite a refreshing pale ale. Good mouth feel, light candied fruits quickly dissolving into the hops. Hops are mild and lemony. A little lingering, but not overly so.
