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.

Bottle at Hop Haven. Nice lime taste. Easy going, lime is at the front. Bit of grain. Nice enough.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Has lemon grass, limes, and lime zest. Lime juice is the main aroma. Clear pale straw color, little thin geysers of carb rising. Lime juice initial; mid palate has some bready, cracker notes; mild lime finish, with some rather unpleasant chemical notes. Thin body. A bit interesting, but overall the flavors do not blend well.

Draft at Burnside Brewing in Portland, OR on 29 May 2013. Poured a lightly hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Floral hop aroma with lime zest and lemon grass. Lime flavours at the forward with citrus hop and bready malt notes. Palate is quite watery with a chemically edge and soda water element.

Poured a light yellow color. Had more ginger taste to it than lime. The kolsch base was good and it was really quite drinkable. Just wish there was more lime to it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with light head but lots or carbonation. Aromas of limes and toasted malts. Flavor is heavy on the limes with maybe a bit of a witbier finish. Definitely refreshing so extra points, but in the category of a cooler, not a beer. Kolsch? Maybe as a base but not the result.

Light and refreshing, as you’d expect from a Kolsch, but the hint of lime really adds a tangy, crisp twist. You could really blow the minds of people who think Bud LIght Lime is good with this.

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.
