3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle-pours bright orange with a small white head around the rim of my glass. herbal, grainy slightly spicy aroma with some fruitiness from the yeast character. flavors have a tea-like component. slightly grainy notes in mid palate with a light dry hop finish of german hops. body is pretty good for this style. lots of malt grain tones in the finsh as well. I think this is pretty good! Are TAR and I the only ones that like this beer?

not a bad beer by any means, just not really a great beer. perfect for someone who has never really tried anything outside of the "coors, mgd, bud" range. Very pale yellow in color with no strong/stand out tastes to speak of.

Corn muffin-like aroma. Poured a transparent pale (urine color to be exact) yellow. Tiny head. Crisp, low carbonation with a touch of malt sweetness in the finish. Very lifeless beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle, thanks to either foolish_mortal or darkelf. i kind of expected this to be a pale ale of some sort, so it was a bit of a letdown when it was an exceedingly clean and light ale. corn-like and malt notes with pilsner-esque aromas, decent summer brew, nothing to get excited unless you’re just finishing up mowing the lawn.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Amber beer with a nice white head. Faint malt/hop aroma. Malt flavor comes through (somewhat bready). Low hop bitterness, and what there is shows up as grassy and citrus.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Courtesy of Foolish_Mortal in a trade. Aroma has a strong Euro-lager presence, with a light skunkiness, and light citrus. Pours a transparent orangish-gold with a small white head. Flavor is light as I expect a kolsch to be. Lightly sweet with fruit up front with an even lighter hop finish. Your average kolsch flavor-wise with a rather unpleasant aroma.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Pailhead. I wish breweries would label their beer to style. Golden yellow in color with no real head formation to speak of. No lacing. Aroma is musky bordering on Eurolagergreenbottle aroma. Light bodied. Flavor is slightly fruited, finishes pleasantly dry. Once past the aroma this is a fairly decent beer.
