2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[November 3, 2008]
bottle born in August 2008. Pours a cloudy gold with a whispy white head. The aroma has lots of corn with low papery hops and much dough and bread. The flavor is semi-sweet and sports some tame hops that are definitely woody. Cereal and cardboard come out. this is pretty right for the style. There is not an excess of DMS or any other problems. It’s just plain and very light.

330 mL bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with a two-fingered white head that dissipates quickly but leaves some decent lacing. Aroma of candy, butterscotch, caramel, pineapple. Watery on the palate. Taste brings some rice, barley, faint hops. Very refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz bottle this Kolsch pours a nice golden color with a creamy white head that lingers a slight lacing. Slight lemon aroma with a trace of hoppiness. A nice clean refreshing taste that makes this a very drinkable Kolsch - I could sit around a drink a few these on the back patio - not exactly a lawnmower beer - but I wouldn’t turn one down after I worked up a thirst in yard.

8-17-08 bottle thanks to miketd
Semi to medium clarity. Light watery orangish amber in color with a thin q-tip white head. Smell is dough - big bold dough! Flavor is light and doughy with no hefty yeast or funk aspects. Drinkable and enjoyable yet light and quiet. Overall, an easy summer drink.

Bottle from miketd. Thanks man! Pours a rich cloudy golden with a small whitish head. Smell is sweet fresh light malt and honey lemon. Taste is slightly thin, but crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable and very lightly hopped. Touch too bland, but a decent kolsch.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy straw golden color forming a nice white foamy head. Aroma of light straw grass, a bit of malty buds, and slight ocean water. Flavour of raw straw, earthen dirt, and malted breads. A Straight up Kolsch beer, no doubt. Easy drinker, clean and refreshing. Not a knock out or memorable beer, yet a good one for the lawn.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little heavy for a Kolsch but still good. Nice nose greated with a light white head. Poured a clear yellow. taste was good, some fruit and maltiness. carbonation was good but mouthfeel was a little heavy for style. Nice for a state side Kolsch. Good for sessions!
