3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Lightly toasted pale malty aroma. The flavor has pale malts, a light sweetness and just a hint of hops. Missing that fresh grassy/spicy hop kick you get from fresh Kolsch in Cologne. Not bad though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mustard-yellow pour, with some soapy white head that dissapates quickly with moderate lacing. Smell is of dough, as in bready yeast or something like that, malt character is pretty strong. Hops and fruit also there, though not nearly as much. Very, very clean crisp feeling upon first sip, and a lot of funky malt too. Bitterness from hops hits at the back-end, along with some citrus, and a slight phenolic taste. This beer is decently drinkable, but the carbonation is just a bit too high for my taste and holds it back. Body is very nice and light though, considering the more-than-expected malt character in this guy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Cloudy lemon yellow and gold color in appearance with ample sea foam head. Lots of potent German Pilsener-like grassy hops and grainy malt aromas. The flavor begins with some apricot tartness and cereal malt backed by floral hops and honey. The carbonation is aggressive and the finish is smooth and dry. A solid summer brew.

Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma shows pale malt and grassy hops. Flavor shows that same with some extra breadiness. Overall body is light and so is the bitterness.

draft at Paradiso in old town alexandria. pale yellow pour, resembling a pilsner. lemony aroma. decent citrusy hops resembling a pale ale. didn’t really remind me of other Kolsch’s I’ve had. good, not great though very sessionable.
