2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A bit of a disappointment. Light aroma to this dark yellow pour. Should be much lighter in color. Carbonation was just OK. Taste was sweet and round, not crisp. Kind of a fuller feeling than a Kolsch has. A good try but not a strike! Outside for a ball. Sorry Blue Mountain!

Pours golden with a thin white head. Light aroma with some fruityness. Nice balance on the taste and palate. But, not super interesting.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours translucent gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is cereal and honey. Taste is overly grainy with an off putting artificial sweetness. Crispy finish, but not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub on 1/19/2013. Poured a mostly clear yellow color with a light, small white head. Aroma was some light crisp malt notes with some mild spice notes. This one was pretty crisp and refreshing and I enjoyed it, though it would have probably been more fitting if i was a little hotter outside.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12
Aroma: This one has a light malty nose with some cereal and grain notes
Appearance: It pours a clear gold orange with a small head and minimal lace
Flavor: The flavor is much like the nose, light-medium sweet, with clean malts, breads, and grains
Palate: This one has a fairly light body, just a hint watery, with a fairly short duration
This one wasn’t a favorite for me. It wasn’t a bad example of the style by any means, and I thought it was decently well made, but I just didn’t love.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold pour with a white head.
Sweet malt aroma that carries both honey and some spice.
The flavor is lightly sweet and very clean, with enough hops to keep it crisp.
Easy drinking, effervescent.
