2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber pours a cloudy yellow beer with a large frothy white head. Scent is some bread and lemons? Taste is light, not unpleasant but in no way will I go for it again.....just seems a little bland compared to Coast’s kolsch.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow and fizzy in appearance, this is surprisingly flavorful, with notes of honey and a clean, brisk finish. This is a bit of an eccentric beer, but there is definitely a place for it, especially in the summertime.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Light golden pour, slightly hazy, good bubble action, crisp, sticky white head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Pleasant, hoppy aroma with some grassy notes. Flavor has some buttery accents with a brief hint of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is just a bit muddled, but does not ruin it. Very solid Kölsch.
