3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at some upscale fish place in Seattle. Dudebro waiter tells me that there’s a "kolsch lager" on tap. When asked whose kolsch, he condescendingly explains to me that kolsch is the name of the brewery and that a lager is a light beer. Nice.
The beer is better than the service, thankfully. Fruity for the style, somewhat rich as well. Not exactly a kolsch as I’d imagine it, but I enjoyed my two glasses.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has rich pale malt, pepper and a nice doughiness. It has a medium / light body but has a bit of heft and soft carbonation. The flavor starts with pale malt and is richer than many kolsches. There are also some herbs and the finish is dry and woody. Good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
