2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear straw but less head than you would expect for a kolsch. Nice noble hop aroma that is counterpounted by a slight pale malt note on the taste. Palate is a bit too sharply carbonated. Hop finish is a bit strong.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Four Peaks in Tempe, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out cereal notes and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is clean, with cereal malts and biscuity notes. True to style and easy to drink, but... it’s a kolsch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the airport location, 11/2/15.
Clear, white golden appearance with blonde hues. Good, foamy white head shows moderate retention.
Light corn, vanilla and other cereal-derived notes aren’t quite as delicate as the real thing, but there’s certainly nothing off-putting or artificial here. Very low hops, with only a passing herbal character (dill, thyme) and a moderately sweet dough and cracker-like finish. Obviously the requisite "light, mindless, mass-appeal" beer for them, but it dosent disappoint.
Well-attenuated, with grass, vanilla, honey and cracker notes all combining nicely. Very strong carbonation perhaps gives it more of a dry feel than it actually is; I do get some sweet doughiness on the end which feels a bit rushed in brewing. Kolsch is probably a bit of a stretch, but it’s a fine, clean, easy-drinking golden ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Simple beer, clean with just a hint of hop and bitterness. Meant to be a pretty broadly appealing beer. Its fine, but not much going on here.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at 1702 in Tuscon. A light, almost citrus aroma and flavor, clear yellow. A bright beer, good as a session variety, but nothing else. Perfect for anyone who likes Coors Light instead of plain water.

On tap at Black Hole Beer Company. Pours a hazy yellow gold with large frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is wheat grass and herbs. Thin mouth, similar flavors to nose, light bitter finish, decent.
