2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lime takes over what might otherwise be a decent kolsch. Clear straw color with small white foamy head. Aroma is mostly citrus, lime. Taste also dominated by citrus, almost like a limeade. Would be a good summer time drink, I’m a few months too late.

Bomber from Last Drop.
I’ve been digging Kolsch lately, and I want to like Burnside, so I had to try this one, lime notwithstanding. Unfortunately, it’s a novelty beer rather than a kolsch. The kaffir leaf comes on quite strong in the aroma, dominating the nose. Lemon grass is powerful in the flavor, the other elements noticable.
Drinkable but not better than it would be without the lime etc.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Pours translucent pale orange with a small head, a thin layer of micro CO2 retention, clusters of very active streams, no lacing.
Nose: mellow kaffir lime leaves, lime zest, overall bright citrus. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: incoming sourness
Mid-palate: very tangy, light-med sourness, fizzy-tingly, (MAIN) kaffir lime leaves, lime zest, barley malt, *hints* of lemongrass.
Finish: lingering acidity, bitter lime peel, subtle bitter hopped barley malt finish.
Summary: Discernable bright flavours just as advertised with a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Nevertheless, kudos to Burnside for creating a uniquely tasting yet very drinkable brew. It drinks like a better tasting Corona with Lime.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very hazy amber; Decent off-white head
Wonderful smell mixes lime with fresh baked bread.
The flavor is much less balanced, with the lime components dominating. Good sweet/bitter/sour balance, with all three present at near equal levels.
Light body with appropriate medium carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from unknown. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, decent amount of off white fluffy head. Aroma biscuity, some lime and keffir, but not much. Body full and and arch, but finish is a bit slippery, very complex lime making itself slowly known gradually, really nice. Not sure why the ratings are so low.

Strange beer. Like a better bud light lime. Light and easy summer beer. Had this in draft as part of a flight at Burnside Brewing in Portland.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Kaffir lime leaf aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is lime, not extreme, with zest and kaffir leaf distingquishable. Pale malt. Ends sort of citrus bitter - leaf and zest build up stronger. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Unclear pale yellow, creamy pillow of white head settles and lasts. Aroma of lime, lemongrass and muted Pilsen malt. Taste is lemongrassy, lime forward, backseat lager malts, some spice and floral notes. Lively carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Nice enough hot day beer. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
