2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice pour but then quickly dissipating head with little retention. Primarily biscuity nose and flavor with some banana flavors. Likely refreshing in the summer but nothing special beyond that.

500ml brown bottle. Lemony yellow colour, hazy, big white head. Mild lacing. Nose has grains/bread, some sweet notes and a trace of lemon hop. Taste is bready and grainy with some grassy hops. Lingering grassy hops and some bitterness, slight minerally note in there too. Light bodied. Very Pils-like.

Too light and even for a kolsch it lacks alot of flavour. Mostly a bland brew with a bright straw pour, soapy head of pure white. The aroma is so light and bit grassy and a pinch of noble hop spice. Almost nothing going on here.

Draft pour pint at Frankies pizza. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a nearly absent grain aroma. Extremely light flavor and body. Watery, and a bit of corn. Nice, cool, refreshing finish. Goes nicely on the hot days. I enjoy this.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Grassy hop aroma, which is out of style for a Kolsch. Pours a slightly hazy light straw with a thin white head. Crisp malt flavor, with a mild lingering bitterness. It doesn’t have the slight touch of fruit that I expect in a Kolsch. This comes across as more of a pilsener. Light bodied and easy drinking, but not a kolsch.

Sampled at the brewpub. Hazy gold. Minimal white foam. Lazy bubbles float up. Lemons and malts. Nice hops are dryly bitter abd fruity. Some Noble notes. Perfect on a hot day.

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.

Not the best Kolsch ever, but it was a nice change of pace for the evening.
