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

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Neben dem leichten Hopfenaroma erkennt man deutlich die für Kölsch typischen Schwefelverbindungen. Geschmack ebenfalls Sorten typisch. Ich bin kein großer Kölsch-Fan...

Hell, leicht trüb. Geruch vor allem nach kräuterigen Hopfen. Im Geschmack dann recht trocken, leicht malzig, leicht bitter. Dazu ein bisschen fruchtig. Top.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap poured into a shaker. the aroma as a bit of a stone / mineral quality to it with hints of grass and an even lighter apricot juicy sweetness hidden in there. It pours a clear, effervescent pale yellow with a foamy white head that has decent retention and lace. The taste is a medium bitter with slightly less sweetness. The texture is thin and zippy with a bit of a slick wax quality to it. The light body is flavored with mineral water, bitter spice and fruit, and a hint of grass that strengthens during the crisp dry finish that’s acidic and a hint of spice. The aftertaste is that of mineral water and muffin dough with a hint of wax that is mellow, but has a moderate length to it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
I’m not a fan of the style, but for the style, I think it’s quite nice. Pretty much as others have described, reminds me quite a bit of a pils.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Light golden with lots of fine floaters and a lacy bright white head.
Aroma: Appropriately subtle graininess, fruitiness, with a woodsy character, faintly herbal and a touch of diacetyl.
Palate: Medium body, relaxed carbonation.
Flav.: Subtle like the nose with similar flavours, still has some diacetyl (unfortunate); dry with gentle bitterness and a grainy malt finish.
I’m surprised to detect diacetyl from this brewer...otherwise, a decent Koelsch.
