3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster at the brewery- thanks! Pours a pale, clear gold with a small, wispy white head. Aroma of grass, grains, and crackery malts. Flavor of grass, grains, crackery and cereal malts, leaves, and minerals. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, dry, malty mouthfeel. Not a bad kolsch.

A great drinking beer. Plain and simple, great drinking beer. No one gives much love to a simple beer like this, but they are the hardest to brew. The more subtle hint of diacetyl will come out, and almost never do i detect it. Well done, but one of my favorite breweries.

Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG 2014. Completely clear yellow color. Thin white head. A dot or two of lace. Good smooth texture. Lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Light to medium body. Nice crisp bready biscuity malt. Light bit of pepperiness. Good bigger bitter taste. Nice light sweetness. Good longer kolschy aftertaste. Nice, easy drinking, but flavorful kolsch.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from the brewery. A clear golden pour that sports a soapy white head. A nice looking Kolsch. This was very golden with a white head. It is definitely malt heavy and hops were a little scarce. They were there but on the lite site. I would have liked a little more hops but it was a nice Kolsch.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery taproom during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear yellow with a creamy, white head. Mildly effervescent. Good cereal character, white bread, mild dough. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, pretty clean, with doughy white bread, more cereal, minimal bitterness. Tasty. Nobody showing much love for this kolsch. But I like it.
