3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ 50 West / Cincinnati --- Clear light amber color with a rim head and tiny dots of lace. Taste is mild light malt that reveals a tiny touch of sulphur and flowery hops at the end of the palate. All moves smoothly through a lingering finish. A little more subtle than the best examples, but still true to the style. A good kolsch.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From draft sampler at the brewpub on June 16, 2013. Light lemonade-like hue, almost nonexistent aroma, light sweet taste with some lemon flavor.
This brew was named "50 West Speedbump Kolsch" at the time I had it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, fruit and sweet malt. The finish is fruity with a mild hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Well done Kolsch. Cloudy, pale yellow. Very drinkable. Light as kolsch should be, with the malt tasting lightly bready and the hops with a light lemony flavor.

It’s a kolsh. Nothing special but good for cutting grass? Words words words stuff and such. The end.

Sample on tap. Mildly hazy light pale yellow color. Little white head. Decent lace. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Lighter body. Smooth and easy drinking. Good light grassy hops, light peppery. Light hints of lemon citrus. Good light bitter, light sweet, some savory taste. Great refreshing kolsch. Awesome "speed bump" amidst all the heavy winter ales and imperials available this time of year - it’s been a while since I had a new good kolsch
