1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Bottle.
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of DMS and hair spray.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Wow, truly terrible, especially the nose. Hard to believe this is made by the same brewery that makes Calico Amber Ale and Victory At Sea, which are both great. This is a certified drain pour.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a thin copper/yellow color. The head is white and creamy. Smells of honey and sourness. Taste is honey, very slightly metallic and bitter, with a bit of lemongrass. Tastes like a lot like a lager. Aftertaste is non-existent. Very boring and thin.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2008 12 oz. Clear orange-golden with a lasting quarter-inch of cream that frosts the glass. Aromas of honey, resin, light fruit and citrus. Flavors of husky grain, fruit and honey are balanced by strong contributions from sawdust, resin and lemongrass. Near-medium body is creamy, tingly and crisply dry.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a little better than pale straw. No real head to say. Plenty of aroma, but not reall malty, almost like there is some corn in the recipe, maybe it is the wheat. Quite light on flavor but looking at the description it is a lager done with ale yeast. Nice, but lighter than I want a pale ale to be. Flavor comes through though.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light golden color with a long lasting filmy white head. Nose makes me cringe a little, with a blend of medicinal yeast notes and herbaceous, weedy hops. Nose doesnt seem to resemble Kolsch at all. Flavor, however, is pretty well balanced and clean. Still would never really want to drink this beer and dont really like it.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark golden color from the tap at the brewery. Notes of black pepper in the aroma with unbalanced amounts of hops and malt in the flavor. Skunky with yeast on the finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright golden, moderate white head. Light floral and fruity notes play off clean grains. Palate is bready grainy pale malts with just a kiss of floral hop character. I guess I was expecting a little more.
