3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden yellow color. A very faintly fruity that doesn’t promise a flavor explosion which I’m sure is the point. A light beer that can be enjoyed slowly in the air-condition and slammed before it warms in the summer heat. A touch of crisp apple, a lightly bitter finish. Does exactly what it’s supposed to do.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From draught sample at French Broad. This one has a very light aroma, with little sweetness and a nice light hoppy character. Golden clear body with a thin white head. Light-medium body with medium-heavy carbonation. Clean crisp with mild beany character. Bit of floral hop bite at the finish. Not quite as flavorful as the actual Kölsch samples from that fair city, a bit water, but drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery... Very drinkable beer... when I’ve had this at the warmer summer festivals, it is one of my favorites, in colder weather, the clean refreshing taste is a little lost on me... Very clean and crisp with what might be Saaz hops... I’m not a huge lager fan or a fan of the lighter beers, but this one would suffice any day the heat gets above 80 degrees.

Growler. Sweet barley malt aroma with a hint of peach. Pale yellow with a moderate white head. Barley malt predominantly - lightly sweet with a moderate hops finish. A nice koelsch on the the hoppy side.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Pours a semi-cloudy light gold with a fair white head. Nose is typically corny with very light touches of woody hops. Woo-boy this is sweet for a lager. I guess it’s not tooth-punishing, but the sugary corn flavor is certainly most prevalent. Not much hop profile to speak of. This is quaffable. I could use more hops and less sweet corn in the flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Barley’s Taproom in Asheville, NC. Poured a slightly hazy golden color. Head was white and reduced over a few minutes to a thin film. There was some decent lace left on the glass at the end. Smelled of yeasty bread dough. White bread dough. The flavor was similar and pleasant with the addition of noble hops. There was mild hop bitterness at the end which rounded things out nicely. Surprisingly good for a kolsch.
