   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Rastacouere (6135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2012
Delicious looking crystal clear golden ale with a 1-incher dense ivory head and a very honest bubbling activity. Grainy, bready, rather fresh nose for a bottled Kolsch where just a touch of fruity esters do show up. Despite appearing very bubbly, the first impression in mouth is the surprise at the bubbles’ softness. They are soft and creamy, rather than crisp and sharp, making the texture a bit loose and untight and giving it an impression of cerealic roundness that is not unpleasant. A whisper of spicy German hops bring that deployment to an end, leaving a fading, moderate bitterness that cuts through the malts. Perhaps not the most authentic Kolsch in terms of texture especially, but still a neat drinker, like a fruity helles, I’d take more than one pint of in the right circumstances.

sic1314 (3635) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2012
Think of a standard Kolsch, but add a reasonable amount of bodyfeel. Quite possibly the best example of this style I have tasted, would not be out of place in a brewery tap on the Heumarkt.

wlajwl (3997) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Aroma is yeast, grains and a hint of a hard to describe spiciness. The flavor is mildly sweet malts/grains and a dry and mildly hoppy finish.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 25, 2012
12oz bottle. Rating #59. Clear medium yellow color. Grainy and a little spicy aroma. Mild bitterness, more grain and a nice little bite. Good stuff. (2379)

scarletfire65 (976) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Pours a clear bright yellow. Tall frothy white head. The aroma is lemon, grassy, crackers, maybe a whiff of honey. Pretty full bodied for a Kolsch. Flavors of lemon, Noble hops, earthy, vegetal. The finish offers a lingering bitterness. One of my favorite summer styles from one of my favorite NY breweries.

bhensonb (11368) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours gold with a creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma is floral, maybe with a hint of pale malt. Med body. Flavor is floral, touch of citrus, somewhat bready. There’s more content to this than many Kolsches. Captain Lawrence doesn’t skimp. Finishes bready/citrus with a decent amount of bitter.

sethbreaker (173) - New York, Greater London, USA - APR 28, 2012
On draught. Biscuit malt on the nose, Sweet on the palate, some earthy character, smooth slick mouth feel, similar to a cream ale. Uninspiring.

hainer (19) - New York, USA - APR 26, 2012
Quite strong for a Kolsch. Pours with frothy head and looks oddly red for this style of beer. Instead of light bitterness, there’s a touch of umami. Maybe a Kolsch in name alone? Overall, an interesting beer, but stylistically it feels in no man’s land.

2.8
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
BREWMUSKCLES (2278) - New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2012
some corn and fresh malt with wheat and root vegetable sweetened some. moderate body just a touch slick and frothy. bitterness kicks in with hardly any accompanying flavor in fact none. malty wheat finish sweet with perhaps some caramel.

dogfish120love (980) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pours a clear bright vibrant yellow. Grass and floral notes with cereal and hay. Slight fruitiness.
