2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes like a full-ish flavored light beer. Not my favorite ( maybe the style is not my favorite??) slight malty with a bit of a bitter finish. And sadly almost a Budweiser like finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat and grass notes. The flavor is similar with some wheat, biscuit malt and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Straw color with a thin white head. Nose is tart with a hint of fruitiness. Taste is tart with hints of hay and a bitter finish. Good dry mouthfeel. I just don't dig Kolsch to date. Probably nothing wrong with this particular one.

really nice "kellerbier" kind of malt aroma, really pleasant yeast esters. a bit hazy, medium gold/dark straw yellow color, formidable thick white head that falls quickly. clean malt flavor with a touch of tartness, a very mellow citrus note in the middle. a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. a lot of body for a kölsch. clean aftertaste. very good take on the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Hazy yellowish hay with a small white head.
Clean light malt aroma, with bread, minor floral hops and faint pear.
Sweetish malt flavor, low bitterness, some dryness and mellow honey notes.
Light, a bit old to be refreshing, pleasant but not crisp enough. So so.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lightly hazy gold - nose has some lightly peppery hops and mild grain, but mostly smells yeasty and moderately sour - seems like an infection setting in - the flavor confirms this - lightly tangy and moderately acidic up front - certainy tastes like the early stages of an infection - the middle is nice, with some crisp grains and a slight hop bite - the finish is mostly sourish yeastiness, though - I was looking forward to a nice, crisp kolsch, but got this infected POS instead - thanks, Captain Lawrence.

Let’s be honest. I hate Kölsch. The style seems to be predicated on skunky lager. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Scent is all cheap grain. Weird slightly sweet flavor. Carbonation masks the terribleness. Ugh. Good for style..........I guess. Bottle - Whole Foods Market Bowery - New York, NY
