3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is a bit fruit backed by bread. Near med body. Flavor is enough citrus and fruit to mostly cover up the malt. Drinks more tasty than many of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: slight haze on a light-yellow pour small white head. Aroma is very pilsener-like with light grass, light bisquit and small whiff of lemon. Flavor is much the same with grass, bisquit, a light lemon grass and a high carbonation tang. This beer seems more pilsener than kolsch, except for the slight tartness, still nice flavors and good drinking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a nice golden color with a white head. The aroma has some nice fresh grains, a little bread and lemongrass, floral and orange hops. The flavor is crisp and bready with lemon and orange hop character in the flavor and a bit more noble spicy bitterness in the finish. Great light yet creamy mouthfeel. A stellar American style Kolsch.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head. Grassy hops, fruity esters, and a grainy sweetness. Notes of bread, straw, and yeast. Kind of a "dirty" flavor, not really clean like I’d hope for from a kolsch. Grape and apple esters, grassy hops, yeast, and grain. Mild bread, some straw, and a light tartness on the finish. Disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. I'm not going to pretend to be familiar with the style. I'm also not going to pretend I was in love with this beer. Definitely an interesting fruity blend, but nothing to write home about.
