2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a very faint grain smell; I wish Canadian brewpubs would pay more attention to the aroma! Has an okay gold body, clear with a little carbonation. Smooth grain flavour, with a creamy and hop-ish finish. It’s very drinkable, but nothing special. Proof of concept more than anything else.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Taps a bright yellow with a large white head. Painfully dull aroma of some faint pale malt, not much else, a hint of vomit? Definitely dulled down a lot by being served overly cold, but even as it warms there’s not much there nose-wise. Flavour is better, decent grainy sweet malt body with a subtle hop undertone. Feels prickly on the palate, and has a somewhat harsh edge to it that I wouldn’t want in a Kolsch, but other than that it’s decent. Had to wait for it to warm up just slightly as it was served freezing cold.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with an average size diminishing white head. Mild aroma of grain, light hops, caramel malt and maybe some honey. Simple flavour, a touch watery but still somewhat refreshing, of grain and light hops. Average bodied. A fine, easy-to-drink beer.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
pours a pale yellow with almost no dead to speak of. some slight malts and grassy hops give the aroma no character at all. taste is the same. very light bodied and easy to drink large quantities. i suppose this is the purpose of this brew.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Byward Market in May ’09. Good sweetness, light bread, not much else for aroma. Light gold, clear, meh. Very thick for a kolsch, very thick and rich but I don’t care. Bready sweetness, warm apple pie (very mild one). Nice light carbonation, almost medium bodied, sweet malt finish. Not sure at what point I was fairly toasted...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
on tap at the new brewpub in the Byward Market. Golden pour, next to no head. Pretty boring aroma, not much malt, just some grassy hops, and wet grass, and some dull grains. The flavor is pretty boring also, grassy, and grainy.

On tap @ Brewpub.
Aroma is light malt, very soft hops, clear golden, small white head, a bit of lace. Taste is light malt, soft fruitiness. Light bodied, balanced, easy drinking, thirst quenching. Good.
