Growler - Cloudy hay colored beer. Dry floral and hay taste. Not a bad Kolsch with a good balance of hop and malt.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden beer with a foamy white head that left some sticky lace on the glass. Soft nose of dusty grains with some lemon and a bit of Play-doh. Soft on the palate with some graininess, lemon cracker and lots of water. A bit of bitter grass in the finish. Not the cleanest kolsch I’ve had.

500ml bottle, with a cloudy honey gold hue, and a big Rocky, bubbly pillowy white head. Nice pineapple, pear, apple, blood orange fruity esters from the yeast used. With a good floral tropical fruit, leafy, citrus hop, lemon pie crust accent, and a bread dough, faint grainy pilsener, pale, toasted malt, faint apple sauce, subtle spicy note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a fruity, doughy, citrusy, bready yeast, subtle wheaty, faint honeyed pale, pilsener, toasted, munich malt character, with some pineapple, pear, citrus, apple skin, apple sauce, lemon pie crust, mild flowery citrusy, leafy hop, faint citrus tea leaf, subtle spicy lemongrass, lemon bread flavours leading towards a fruity dough yeastiness, lemon pie, crunchy bread, wheat, pale, pilsener maltiness, lingering grassy, citrus hop bitterness finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Awesome kolsch! Brewers in Cologne would be proud to have this. One of the best American kolschs I’ve tried. Light and bready, lots of pale malt, biscuits, crackers. Tall airy head (poured into my Fruh stange), Pale golden and effervescent. Right from the first sniff I knew this was going to be good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle pours a hazy light straw color with a generous white head that retains well and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy and grassy. Taste is a spicy and grassy hop bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness which finishes quite dry on the palate. Light bodied with good carbonation. A decent pilsnener style beer that is a little better than your typical macro lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Mostly clear pale yellow, lasting creamy white foam. Muted grainy malty aroma. Taste is lagery malty, stale cereal, faint citric fruitiness, mild dull floral herbal hop. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Forgettable. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)
