Out of a can I first think of jaguar ice. Then it starts to morph into something better. Yea, getting more used to this. Seems to have much more than 5% in alky, big personality. By the end of the session I’m starting to think ruder pale lager.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Where and how: bottle 355ml
Aroma sweet front with softer slight floral vibe. Backed by sweet malty notes. Nice, but it could be drier.
Top: bright white mid sized cap
Base: deep golden.
Palate : nice soft body, milder carbonation.
Taste: golden malts a bit like Helles. Nice milder yet noticeable herbal green hops. Good malt depth. Nice Noble hop feel to it.
Other notes maybe tad too soft for Kolsch yet still solid nice brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned, best by 03 2014 -- oops on me! Kudos for proper naming convention (-"style"). Nose light pils malt, touch of faint citrus and grass. Pours bright but lightly hazy yellow-golden, slow below-avg carb with a lacing and rocky bright white head. Taste sweet with light woody-caramel undercurrent, lightly bitter with a bready thread throughout, but the main body is more floral and noble hop grass/perfume. Cleanish (the aftertaste doesn’t entice a ringing endorsement), crisp, repeatable medium body. Happy with this, even happier that it’s held up so well beyond its BB date -- is there hope in cans for delicate styles like Kölsch?

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Has an aroma of sweet flowers. Nice golden color with vigorous carbonation and mediocre white head. Flat taste with a sweet finish. Not very good.

Total Wine, Fairfax cans: Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is apple, grass, hops, and some grain. Taste is lightly bitter. Slightly sweet. Refreshing, with hints of spicy bite to it. Nice and sessionable, of course. Simple, but good.
