4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured clear from a can (not listed as a contract brew but the can says it is). Light floral aroma. Nice head and good lacing all the way to completion. A bit bitter for a Kolsch but I like it. Easy drinker, could put a few of these away without knowing.

On tap at the Distillery. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, light fruits, peach, spicy hops. Flavor of bready malt, tons of spices I can’t quite place, light bitter hops, light fruits. An interesting and different kolsch, I quite liked this one.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
$9.79 six pack from a Bi-Lo on Hilton Head Island, SC. Pours a hazy dark gold with an explosive white head that slowly falls to a few permanent lumps atop the beer. Aroma is weak--malts and some yeast. Taste is sweet malts, butter, vanilla, some nuts with a yeasty and crisp finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. This is well within the style guidelines, being refreshing, easy to drink, and forgettable. Worth a tick if you’re in the area.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
End part of a 12oz bottle, shared by the group. Mildly hazy golden color. Minimal white head and lace. Nice floral hop in the nose. Little orange zest. Light to medium body. Light carbonation. Zesty sweet taste. Pretty good golden. Definitely better than expected, especially for a can that’s been sitting around open for a bit, which I got the end part of.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden with a sudsy white foamy head. Lightly nutty aroma, sweet malty, a bit creamy full, some vanilla. Flavor is a bit chalky and yeasty, seemingly wheaty, touch of honey, fairly dry. Crisp body, a bit gritty, smaller soda carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce can - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a light yellow-hued body, ever so slightly hazed, with a small, powder white head.
Smell: Sweetened lemon peel, scant crackery maltiness and a pinch of peppery dried herb.
Taste: Mild malt flavors of soda crackers and puffed grains preclude some sweetish lemon, some mealy-toned husk accents and a herbal, lightly spicy hop character. Lightly bitter. Flavors follow through the crispish, semi-dry finish, though, there’s more of that sweet lemon popping up in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to taster from notes (shared by brew3crew). Looks good; a semi-transparent blondish-orange with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes doughy with some floral hop notes. Good on the palate with a little snap too. Solid for the style.

Savannah, Ga - Piggly Wiggly - 12 oz can. Pours a hazy dark golden with a pillowy snow white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma has a hint of mineral water, light floral notes. Flavor has a bit of a light fruity tone to it with hints of apricots. some light buttery notes make up the back end with a light hint of white grapes. Somewhat refreshing. Thick enough mouthfeel.
