Appearance: Crystal clear golden body with a creamy white head.

Taste: Very light and clean, hints of malty sweetness.
Palate: Light bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Clean but boring. Of all things to brew for an anniversary beer, why a kolsch?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: darkish gold, lightly hazed; fluffy, foamy off-white head; good amount of lacing. Aroma: warm pie crust, grains, notes of citrus and floral hops. Taste: darkish whole grain bread with honey butter, balanced by a nice mix of citrus, floral and earth hops. Finish: slightly dry, a little bitter, with that Brewer’s Art malty finish coming back strong. Notes: This was a surprisingly full-flavored kolsch, with much more in the way of hops than what I’ve come to expect from the style. Nonetheless, well-balanced flavors and an excellent palate make this extremely drinkable and sessionable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Frisco Grille: Pours a transparent deep golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of semi-sweet biscuity malt with some floral character and grassy noble hops. Starts with good carbonation and fullness for the style with a light malty sweetness and good, crisp, earthy bittering hoppiness before a clean, bittersweet finish. An enjoyable, authentic and refreshing Kölsch.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I loved this beer. Maybe it was the atmosphere (my first time to Brewer’s Art on the way to a highly anticipated live show with a great friend), maybe it is my obsession with the elusive great session lager, but damn this was a good Kolsch. The aroma and flavor of pure unadulterated malted barley with a perfect balance of continental hops all the way to the superbly crisp satisfying palate and finish. I could drink this stuff all day, I almost wish that I had.
