2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The Beer Store, Southampton PA ($2.50): Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma is light notes of apple and grain. Taste is slightly sweet, but mostly just really simple and unexciting. I bought it just for a cheap rating and that is what I got. Wouldn’t mind throwing a few of these back on a day I just don’t care though.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Transfer from BA review on 7-26-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a super hazy golden-yellow color with a huge billowy white head. The head has a decent retention power fading slightly faster at first, but then slowing quite a bit and maintaining its strength. While rather persistent it does fade over time and does diminish to fade a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a bready nature with a moderately strong grainy wheat smell. Along with these aromas is a nice blend of grassy and citrus hop as well as a bit of caramel and orange sweetness which when combined with the rest create a very nice and balanced kolsch aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a dry grainy and malted taste. It begins strong with lots of grass and hay flavors and only gets stronger in the flavors to the end. While a bit of caramel and orange sweetness were in the nose, there was almost none on the tongue. The grass and hay flavors grow stronger and more off to the end where they combined with a lemon and slightly earthy flavor to leave a very off and slightly astringent tanniny taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite light with a carbonation level that is rather average. While good for the style, the off flavors of the brew can’t be helped and any which way you slice the mouthfeel it just can’t cut it.
Overall – While the aroma and smell were very pleasant (as with many of the evil genius brews) the taste was quite off (again a bit too common of a trend for their brews; but not all…). This is not one I will come back to and I would suggest to leave it by the wayside.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 5-18-2012 at 800 Degrees Pizza (Fort Wayne, IN) This draft beer pours a medium sized white head, yellow transparent body, soft suspended carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt and toffee. The flavor is light hop bitterness, sweet, malt, and a lot of toffee. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. A session beer with a toffee aftertaste. This beer I do not recommend.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from somebody. Fizzy golden pour with a white head. Grainy grassy aroma. Hard to reach flavor after you break through the mega carbonation but still you’re not going to taste much other than bland pilsner malts. Pass.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with thick bubbly white head that dissipates to leave no real lacing. Aroma is corn maltiness with a slight biscuit back end. Taste follows, bubbly and heavily carbonated. Not feeling this at all.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a acrid aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of acrid hops and malt. Eh, take it? No Leave it!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From notes: Poured clear golden amber with moderate bubbling along the glass and no head to speak of. Mild grassy aroma mixed with citrus and a touch of yeast. Body is light but slightly thick. Pretty much flat, which makes me wonder if this is a bad bottle. Grassy flavor with a touch of lemony citrus and some earthy yeast in the finish.
