Draft at BF. Pours a pale golden body with a white lacing. Light malt aroma, sweet with a mild dry finish. Lightly bitter with an hint of spritz pepper, and carbonation that bites at your tongue. A bit vegetative as well. eh.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear pale golden, with no head. Aroma is disconcerting, with some strongly bitter and biting acidic overtones. Flavor is disgusting. There’s DMS, infection, and over-sparging. Thin, astringent, biting. Palate washes away quickly. I can’t even drink this. Drain pour. Ugh, unfortunate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours pale gold with thin white head. The aroma is sweet and a little bit grainy with some lemon notes and cotton candy. The flavor is light and fruity with some graininess and a little bit of papery hops. Some lemon notes come and go. Decent enough for what it is.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear pale straw color with a small fizzy white head. Nose is grainy and fruity, almost like a chardonnay. Flavor is light, slight citrus and a bit papery. Grainy too. Light and refreshing body. Very spritzy consistency. Also, had no idea this was a kolsch, but whatever it is, it is a solid beer.

Tap. Aroma of pale malts, restrained soapy/perfumy character and a touch of white grapes. Flavor quite bland, mild fruitiness, mild malt, mild bittering hops. Slightly astringent and weak body. Had no idea this was a Kolsch, which is a bad thing.
