2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pale ale thats a kolsch, eh? Pretty deeep yellow with no visible carbonation. Smell is clean. Initial taste is first pale ale then morphs to lagerlike with background fruit. Tho pale ale bitter at the beginning of each sip, it goes fruity lager eventually. Finish is somewhat bitter but its acceptable for a lager lover.

A very delicious kolsch. Don’t see many of this style but this is one of the better. Aroma was so so. Light malt, corn and cereal. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger white head and plenty of bubbles. Taste was was nice for the style. Very cereal like with hints of caramel malt coming in and out. Very grainy but the malt keeps it sweet and good. Strong carbonation. Nice beer.

Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear golden colour with a low firm white foam. Rounded mild aroma of straw, flowers, honey and mild soap. Medium to light-bodied with notes of mild lemon, leaves, straw and orange-peels. Clean mouthfeel. Mild medium-bitter finish of orange-peels, leaves, straw and neutral yeast.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transparent gold with nice carbonation and a long-lasting white head. Pleasantly sweet nose of light hop, wheat, and banana. Refreshing flavor, mainly of light wheat with hints of grass. Thin body but the flavor remains. I can find this from most other breweries, but its enjoyable nonetheless.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a clean amber , nice lacing. Smell was dominated by malts and a touch of citrus. The mouthfeel and the taste were very smooth and easy on the palate. This is a very drinkable beer, something that I could see pounding on the beach in San Diego all day, but I think it suffers from being overshadowed by the guys at Stone. It doesn’t stand out, but maybe that was the intentions, good beer though.

Drank this one a while ago and failed to rate it at the time. It’s a pale ale, and a weak, watery, non-deScript one at that. Odd that this beer would be the most widely available one from a brewery that otherwise produces great stuff.

Pours bright gold into a shaker. Soapy white head recedes to hug rim. Sweet and sour caramel aromas. Crisp and fruity with upfront caramel turning quickly to a sour summer fruit finish.
