3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow, with chill haze. Aroma is quite fruity (lemon, apricot, faint banana) - especially considering it was made with a lager yeast. There were also some faint husky notes. Light body. Smooth underlying maltiness at first - pity this didn't carry through to the finish, where it would really have done some good. The finish did have a hint of hallertau. Good attempt, though, considering there were a couple of deviations from tradition.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Dragonmead. Pale golden pour. Lightly hoppy with a light touch of amber malt character as well. A little bit sweet and worty smelling. Grainy and quite cereal-like with some lingering sweetness. Not very clean but not really estery either. A little bit minerally and herbal with a kiss of light bitterness. Grassy but not really well-integrated. More pale lager than kolsch.

Bready, herbal nose is pleasantly inviting. Hazy golden yellow body is topped with a thin white head that lasts well and leaves some lacing. Bready malts with herbal, spicy hop flavour and decent finishing bitterness. Light-medium body with moderate carbonation. Sampled at the Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2005.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the Michigan Brewers Fest. Unfiltered pale solid gold, with a lasting touch of head and hints of lace even in the crappy plastic tasting "glass"....grassy nose with hints of vanilla and nice Munich malts...solid, well-balanced blend of well-mashed malt, grassy herbal bitterness with the hops slightly pronounced at the finish. Quite solid.
