4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle into a tall pilsner glass. Date unknown, but it has the newer style logo cap AND its the first time I’ve seen six packs in CT so I assume its on the fresher side of things.
A - Crystal clear dark straw yellow body with rising carbonation. Bone white three finger head forms and sizzles down to a nice one finger high head with large bubbles. Moderate amount of lacing and retention.
S - Very spicy. Coriander, lemons, grass, bubble gum, and some floral qualities. Earthy with a bit of a dough like finish.
T - Really transcends the line between sweet and spice. It goes back and forth between honey, cracker malts, peppercorn, coriander, bubble gum, and fruity hops. Crazy delicious and easy drinking. Medium to light mouth feel with just the right amount of crisp carbonation.
O - I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by this one, but I kind of was. Extremely delicious hot weather beer full of flavor. I’m a noob to the kolsch style, but this is a winner in my book. So glad to have this in six pack format.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is one of my favorite styles, especially this time of year. 12oz bottle, no date that I could see, poured into a stemmed lager-glass. Pours a straw gold with a thin white cap. Fair spotty lace clings to the glass. The aroma is earthy and "green." Slight veggie scent, with a bit of green hops.
Cool crisp bite to this. Carbonation level uplifts this "light" beer making this one quite zippy and refreshing. Great flavor profile of mild bittering hops, creamed corn, fresh bread - all melded together beautifully. This beer really hit the spot. Were this a local offering, I’d have a sixer of this on hand most anytime during these warm months.

12oz bottle served in a glass beer mug. Light German hop and sweet malt in the aroma. The beer is a clear yellow color with a white head that left a thin coat of lacing. Good balance of flavors, the beer is crisp and refreshing to drink. A fantastic summer time beer.

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.

Refreshing and clean. The appearance didn't impress too much with little or no head and very thin light yellow appearance. But the flavor won me over. Clean, crisp and well balanced. Fizzy, light malt and spice flavored. Favorite hot weather beer for me this summer

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.

On tap at the brewery (in a plastic cup). Golden with surprisingly dense little head and lace. Fresh grassy honey noble aroma. Mild honey vanilla sweetness with minimal fruit and grassy hoppy dry finish. I’m no expert in the style, but it was definitely a tasty light refreshing beer.

[Draft @ Pacific Standard] Golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of straw, toast, sweeter toffee, some honey, citrus, and grass. Taste of crisp, toast, citrus, light hop, and a dry finish.

Well, hells bells, if it isn’t Captain Lawrence with another home run. After initially being quite disappointed with their Limone Luppolo AND Liquid Gold, this one along with the other one I just had, Sun Block, are awesome.
Pours a clear straw color with a white head that leaves lacing. Aromas of noble type hops, some must. Pretty great tasting... Clean lager feel with a small hop bite and a very round finish. Pretty outstanding for the style.
