2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Mission Dolores. Poured dull, filtered gold. This was, for lack of a better term, horrendous. Completely and utterly overloaded with diacetly/butter, and cookied veggies. Damn near undrinkable. We mistakenly ordered two pints for three of us and together made it through about 4 ounces.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at RNH. Pours a light golden yellow, clear, nice carbonation and a sticky thick white head. Aroma is earthy, cracker, some pils malt, a touch too sweet in the aroma- leafy and light grassy hops. Flavor is a bit more sweet, gets a touch fat in the body, light honey, some DMS hint, cream of wheat doughiness, cracker and toast with earth and light hops- could go for some added attenuation- finish is a bit sweet and thick for a kolsh.
