3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells solid; doughy with a nice cucumber presence. Tastes like it smells, but the cucumber comes across a little stronger. Average on the palate. A decent take on the style, but the cucumber flavor could be a little subtler.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler. Fresh briny cucumber aroma. Clear gold with a minimal white head. Strong cucumber flavor with a very mild bitter cucumber peel flavor in the finish. Light body, flat carbonation (not a fresh growler).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rule 34-A: If it is eatable or drinkable, thereís beer of it. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear golden color with a two-finger white head that leaves plently of lacing. Go ahead and take a wild guess at what the aroma is. Hey, youíre right! Not picking up anything else but cucumber in the nose. Taste is fresh cucumber very up front and strong, backed by salt, bread, light citrus, a hint of pine. Big taste, but still light and crisp. Taste is really starting to grow on me after a few drinks. Leaves a strong, lingering cucumber/dill pickle taste in your mouth that will not go away, (not a bad thing, in my opinion). Medium to light bodied, slick, sticky texture, average carbonation. Overall very nice! You have to be ready for this taste though. This is absolutely not for everyone. Would go great with a salad! I only bought one bottle as I wasnít sure if I would like it or not. Now Iím wishing Iíd got the whole 6-pack. Refreshing, crisp, very different and definitely original!

I thought this beer was really cool. A little bit of cucumber in the aroma. A very light body with a nice cucumber flavor. Unique and refreshing. I didnít know what to expect but I thought this was really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a really weird beer, and tasted/smelled strongly of cucumbers/pickles. It was pretty refreshing, but I donít know how much of it I could actually drink!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Intense cucumber smell and taste. It is pleasant by all means but not something I would want much of.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of cucumber, light fruits, sweet bready malt. Flavor of strong cucumber essence. Itís quite powerful. Hmm at first I was excited to try a cucumber flavored kolsch but this is a bit heavy on the cucumber. You do get used to it as you drink- by the end of the glass there is a nice combination of sweet fruit and bitter vegetable notes. Interesting beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2013 12oz bottle shared nd then poured out. Bright yellow color with no head. The aroma of a pickle cucumber with salt. The flavor is sour mushy cucumber that doesnít taste very good at all. Leaves a cucumber taste in your mouth. Sorry but this is my opinion only.

This was a very solid Kolsch with a strong cucumber essence and a clean superior mouth feel. I will buy this beer again.
