4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. One of the strangest Kolschs I have ever tried and a pretty weird beer. Cloudy orange appearance with a lot more power than expected. Lots of fruitiness with a full on flavour. Although I have rated it a 4 it could have easily have been a 3 but it was so different that I struggled to come to grips with it. Weird and wonderful.

Draft. Pours deep gold with a thin white head. Grainy malty, with herbal-ish hops, and lightly sweet malts. Doesn’t taste very fresh. Not great.
