A little bitter now, so it needs more refrigeration (bought it less than 2 hours ago)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color with one-finger heat that sticks around a while and leaves some patches of lacing. Aroma is hay, bread, and some citrusy hops. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet a short, hoppier finish. Body is light with slight carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. I was expecting an American Pale Ale, not a Kolsch when I saw the label. Still, this is decent for a Kolsch (far from my favorite styles). I might try it again, but won’t go out of my way to find it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden color, forming just a small amount of white head. Aroma is bready with some citrusy hops. Reminds me of a good helles lager. Taste follows the nose with the same helles vibe, just a bit more bitter and hoppy. Body is really smooth. Very nice, easy to drink beer. Fits its description perfectly.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden brew with decent head and smells of mostly malts with a touch of floral. Pretty well balanced brew that lets the malts and hops be really tasted but not one overpowering the other. Very chuggable brew but for the price not recommended. Decent brew but for the price would have liked it to be more exciting instead of boring and plain.

The occasions I’ve had this brew have been far and few. Each time I read the label, already-inebriated or not, it still perplexes me. Original "pale
ale" or kolsch? Which is it? I dared another attempt. 12oz pour to Teku, a sunny orange with a lightly gripping head. Nose is dominated by aromas reminiscent of a kolsch (unless my slightly runny sinuses deceive me). Nose is draped in noble hops, little bit of banana, little bit of bread. Flavor is clean with delicate sweetness, harmless hop-bite, a tiny bit bready, clean finish. I can endlessly swirl, sniff, sip, swish, repeat; still no solid answer. I admire a style-bending beer, but this is simply a medium-caliber brew from an adventurous west coast scene. Maybe I’ll pick up another one 6 months from now, just for kicks.
