2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to pint. Looks fine; dark for a Kolsch though. Brown and hazy with off-white head and lots of carbonation. Smells yeasty. Tastes decent; more like a brown ale though. Average on the palate. Decent, but not a Kolsch.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This is the darkest example of the style I have seen. A deep coppery amber with a dense beige head. Aromas are spicy with a distinctly peppery edge. Flavor is sticky and sweet with a caramel and bread dough sugariness that gives way to a lovely spicy finish. Almost like pepper and cinammon or something. This is a nice beer, but I think I like the lighter varieties I have tried better as summer beers.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Caramel malt and light spice aroma. Cloudy brown amber with a small off-white head. Caramel, burnt toast, and herbal bitter hops flavor. Medium body, light carbonation. Nothing about this beer is like a kolsch. If I were rating to style it would be a 0.5. Honestly, it reminds me more of a less than stellar amber.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer and good for style.

Love the take on a kolsch. Polish so funny. This is a surprisingly great beer. You got to pick up a six pack.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber-colored, with a small head. Light bitterness. Not a lot of flavor, but goes down easy. Very light spice notes.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Amber orange brew with short but persistent head. Aroma of malt, caramel, grassy hops. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, a little yeast and finishing with grassy hops. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to plastic in the new, quite chilly, craft beer cave/locker at the Kane County Cougars/ Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva, IL.. Appeared hazed, with a brownish amber hue, cream colored head foam, and miminal streaks & spots of lacing. The nose was toasty, with a touch of caramel and a bit of graininess. The flavor contributed an earthy bitterness, and was dry on the finish. Decently sessionable as more of a Northern German Altbier to me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber color with a moderate head to it. A fair amound of citrus to this in both taste and smell. Interesting brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown with a khaki head. Aroma is caramel, pear and floral. Taste is sweet and somewhat spicy. Medium mouth feel. Not your typical kolsch but a nice little surprise, drank well after a hot summers day.
