2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Green Flash in San Diego. Named pale ale, but actually a kolcsh. 4 of us at dinner ordered this beer on tap, after the first sip we all looked at each other and wondered whether the waiter had actually brought us a lager. I didn’t care for this beer, however, that’s consistent with my other experiences with kolcshes; just not to my taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Yellow pour leading up to a short-lived white fizzy head. Good carbonation. The aroma is mildly grainy and cleanly hopped. Grassy. Muted. The body is about medium and creamy. The taste has a nice balance of pale malts and grassy hops. It is a pretty straight forward, highly drinkable Kolsch.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pours clear golden with a filmy white head. Nose is real grainy with a bit of melon and light herbal/spicy hops. Taste is grainy and dry, with light herbal hopping and the same touch of honeydew. Lightly spicy grainy finish. The carbonation bites a bit with a slick medium body.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is of dusty malts, some metal, hops, wheat, and an ever so slightly skunked aroma. Carbonated palate. Flavors are of your typical German style pilsner. There’s a light malt and hop flavor up front. Corn, grain, wheat and metal are also present. Leaves a mild hop and malt finish. I’m honestly let down with this.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz single bottle from Tipsy’s Golden and pretty clear appearance with light sediment, active carbonation and a lingering whie head. Mild aroma of toasted grains, spicy hops, floral/herbal notes, light pepper, light fruits and some yeast. Similar flavor, crisp mild to moderate hop bitterness and a touch of malty sweetness. Light to medium body with ample carbonation and a light dry finish. Definitely drinks more like a kölsch than an APA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale amber. Nutty caramel malt and a weird citrus hopping. Flavor is watery caramel malt and more citrus/watery grapefruit. WTF is this. Not in-line with BP’s other great beers.

Odd. I was expecting a pale ale and the server said ’kolsch’ I thought he didn’t know what he was talking about. And hey, there it is right there on Ratebeer - its a kolsch apparently. This was fine, but I was looking for something hoppy and certainly did not find that here. Its a mild. Deceptive because of the name.

Poured from a 12oz bottle.
Very clean and refreshing pale ale. A fairly thin mouthfell, not a whole lot there.

Bottle. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma is very fruity, tropical, lagerish, mango, citrus, spices. Taste is crisp, very fresh grainy, cereal, high carbonation, light bodied. Overall, okay.

Bottle from a mix-pack. Pours out a clear light golden color with fine carbonation. Biscuit malt aromas and flavors. Low hopping. Thin body. Very boring.
