3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery, 11/23/15. Orange in color with a lighter head. Coffee comes through mostly on the aroma. Grains and earth. Bit floral as well. Coffee works well with the underlying kolsch style flavors that exist here. Nice and light kolsch style mouthfeel as well. Overall, this is a nice beer.

Draft as Laimas Coffee Kölsch. Interesting bright coffee aroma. Lager characteristics are preserved, but coffee flavor makes it more interesting. The Germans would have a stroke.

Lightly hazed yellowish color, white head. The coffee plays very well with the light she crisp kolsch base beer. Biscuity malt, good coffee flavor, light hops. Good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
10 oz at the brewpub. Pours hazy light orange. Very nice fresh coffee bean nose, though not as powerful as I would expect on such a light bodied style. The flavor carries the genuine coffee, which I admit is an unusual compliment to the sort of vegetal base of the kolsch. I do not dislike it, it’s just a little weird. The finish is almost like coffee with celery flavored cream. Pretty neat beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy golden with a thin white ring of head. Aroma is incredible with bright floral and slightly chocolaty fresh roasted morning coffee. The flavor hits the spot right on, with bright floral coffee notes, a biscuity chewy graininess, and a gentle roastiness with blonde grains. Wonderful to see this style pulled off with coffee beans.
