3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at GABF In the sample glass was yellow. Tine bit of white foam. Nose if light citrus. Light to medium body. Flavor was the lemon and floral. The finish was bitter for a Kolsch. Bordering on a pilsner. Nevertheless while maybe not fully to style it tasted pretty good.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can. Pours a slightly darker gold than the typical Kolsch, with a minimal fizzy white head that completely vanished almost instantly. The aroma is not good at all, it’s more akin to garbage juice than it is to a beer. There seems to be a bit of sourness to the aroma as well. I don’t expect this to go well. Well, the flavor isn’t quite as awful as I was expecting, but it’s clearly not a style superstar. Wet and soggy malt, a hint of tartness on the lingering grainy finish. There’s little to no perceptible hops coming through at all. Light bodied, a tad clingy and flabby, fizzy carbonation. Not good at all, and definitely one of the worst attempts at Kolsch that I’ve had.

(Can) Very cloudy amber body with small to medium white head. Aroma of toast and fruit. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel. Flavor is smooth and drinkable; pine and some vegetable upfront, growing bitterness in there finish; dry.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned. Yellow pour and the like. A weird overripe fruity aroma was present rendering it kind of blah

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from TW&M McLean - pours clear Amber, white head. Aroma has some floral diesel notes to it. This one reads like a Pilsner, which is not what I expect in a kolsch. It’s a pretty decent Pilsner, but not what I was expecting.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured yellow, nice head. Clean pils malt aroma. Flavor matches, with the very slightest hint of a floral hop. Really nicely done.
