3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at tap room. Pours golden with a thin white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Nice light, thin mouthfeel. Feels a bit effervescent. A bit of fruitiness on the tongue. Finishes clean. Hard style to pull off but this is good one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy lemon yellow with champagne effervescence. Frothy white head that fell fast but left a thin ring and cap. Soapy wet lace. Nose is biscuit and cracker. Fabulous malt. A little hop breath of orange and citrus overall. Malt opens up with a touch of caramel. Taste is clean, crisp malt. Grain and plenty of cracker with just a hint of caramel sweetness. Hops whisper from the wings- earthy, floral and lightly fruity with some lemon. Mouthfeel is rich not sweet and perfectly delectable. Washes over the palate dry with just a bit of oil to make you smack your lips and want some more. Excellent kolsch. Simple and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light, clear gold with lots of bubbles and a thin white head. Aroma is pretty standard "beer" in terms of malt component, but has some additional vanilla and light fruity sweet notes. Taste is the same, but with a lasting biscuity malt flavor that endures beyond the relatively high initial bitterness. $2/12oz

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast, bready malt, light grassy hops, peas, salt, fruit and floral notes -- a touch odd. Slightly watery flavour of grain, grassy hops, bready malt, yeast and fruit. Average bodied. Kolsch is far from my favourite style but even I can tell this is a poor example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into closest I could find to be a kolsch glass. Gold pour, lively white head that thins out quickly. Smells almost like a belgian ale- spices, yeast, some faint hops. Tastes pretty bright with lemon up front, malty/spicy middle, and a very gentle bitter finish that gets followed up with some breadiness. Not bad.

Bottle, pours a nice bright yellow, this is the most similar american kolsch to kolschs from koln that I have I had. It was nice, it had a good crisp flavour, I will buy this again

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Aroma of lemon peel and grass. Light gold, white head. I taste citrus, floral hops along with toasted malt and sugar/spice notes. Dry and refreshing, lager-y feel. Well done.

My favorite style is kolsch and I am german. This is definitely not a kolsch brew although its not bad for what it is. Kolsch is crisp. This beer is creamy. Nice blend of spices just needs a new name.

lol, i bought this when out in milford at my GF’s house, didn’t even realize i didn’t tick it. Standar lightly hoppy smooth kolsch, a little too thick and oddly creamy for me, i like these extra crisp, it couldve been old however.
