2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Huge thanks to capra12 for picking up a growler of this at DeCicco’s for me. Served in a Bruery tulip.
Pours a light yellow color with a pretty good white head. Decent retention and a bit of lacing as it goes down. The nose brings forward some light grain and very faint hops, but also brings forward an unfortunate DMS presence that is reminiscent of creamed corn and a bit of soaked cabbage. Luckily, it wasn’t terribly overwhelming. The taste is along the same lines and it’s tough to get past, though there are some nice element sin the background. Feel is light and fairly crisp. Other than the DMS issue, a really drinkable brew.
Serving type: growler

Draft. Maybe i didnt like this because they served it in a frosted mug. Light, crisp, refreshing like a coors light. Not much going on here. Nice session beer for a summer bbq

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Fontana’s. Poured a clear deepish yellow with a short lived white head. No lace. Served in the incorrect glassware so I will give it the benefit of the doubt. Thanks to having no head it is going to be a bitch to get an aroma out of this thing so I will give it a 5 assuming that if it were poured in a kolsch glass and had a head it would smell like lemon and Caramunich malt. Taste is fresh lemon up front and ends with mild soap and butter. Sharp bitterness pervades but comes across more like malt liquor trash bitterness rather than hoppy bitterness. Overall the body is very heavy for kolsch with no characters I would associate with the style: fruity, dry, fresh, easy to drink. Not offensive but not on style. Actually hard to drink and enjoy.

the flavors were all very good. i prefer a kolsch to be clearer and more carbonated.

Draught. Fruity aroma, hint of vegetable. Hazy yellow colour. The flavour starts off a little tart, turning horsey and papery. Does not seem fresh.

Pale gold, not much head. Nicely fruity, grainy, winey aroma. Flavor is sweet and a little bit fruity, maybe a few stale flavors, too. Crisp finish. Some apple and pear as it warms.
