3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden with a big sustained white head... Nice lacing in the kolsch glass... Bready, grassy aroma with a subtle hint of citrus... Decent flavor up front, odd lingering flavor, grassy, slightly bready, no kick of citrus like the aroma... light body, easy drinking, not very crisp, no unnecessary sweetness...

Pours very clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is breast and grassy with subtle soapy notes. Flavor is more hoppy than expected and crisp...also breast...balanced. Mouthfeel is Is slightly creamy yet light...light hoppy finish lingers too long.

Light on the taste, thin on palate. Having enjoyed Kölsch in Köln, I was a little exited to try one outside the old city walls. ***sigh*** Nothing special....

Not a big fan of this local brew, it feels like homebrew quality with more money.

i got tricked by the name and expected an american pale ale. what I got was a pilsnery thing that turns out to actually be an ale that tastes like a lager. still, i could appreciate a good Kolsch but this was not one. Kolsches rely a delicate balance of subtle flavors and this does not achieve that balance

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a huge yellow white head that produced good lacing. The aroma was tangy, sour and bitter with a light floral and spicy hop element. The flavor was bitter, tart and tangy with light nutty malts crisp floral and vague fruity hops and a light yeasty undertone. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a mostly transparent yellow with a fizzy, white head. Lightly sweet aroma with some pale malts. Flavor holds some mild earthen malts and sweetness. There is a slight chemical character, which wasn’t too enticing. Pleasant, medium body with adequate carbonation. Overall it was decent.
