2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yeasty aroma. Color is gold. White head. Has a metallic aftertaste. Doesn’t last long on palate, but stays in your nose. Not one of the best German beers, but for the price- not too bad. I taste steel.

Bottle. Pale lager color with small head. Sweet aroma of malt with fair amount of hops. Taste is sweet/fruity with slightly earthy undertone. Nice soft palate typical of a Kolsch. Tastes much better on tap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16.9 oz bottle. Golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is grainy, with some yeast flavor to it. Flowery as well. Flavor is a little dry, and does not leave a really nasty aftertaste, which is always a plus.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2010 Re-rate. Bottle at homebrew meeting. Pours a brilliant pale gold with strong white head. Nose is fresh and grainy with a hint of fruitines. Perhaps a kiss of spice from the hops. On taste, well-rounded backbone of pils malt and perhaps a bit of wheat. Finishes clean with a round fruity note. Much better this time. Nice.
Tap at Laschet’s. A bit tinny, though quite fruity and tasty. A touch dry with a diminished head. okay.

0.4 L draft at Loreley, in NYC. My first Kolsch, so not much to compare to. No lingering head, crisp grain, a little dry and tasty.

12oz bottle pours golden with a fluffy white head that stays briefly. Aromas of crisp grains, and some grassy hops. Flavor is mostly grainy with a slight yeast presence and some nice grassy hops at the finish. Light crisp clean and very refreshing. Not bad at all on a hot summer day!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
16.9oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear very light straw with a one finger white head. Aroma of faint skunk, cookie dough, herbal and slightly spicy hops, and lastly a bit of grain. Flavor adds a bit of wet paper and more grain. Minimal bitterness. Moderate carbonation, thin body. Not very great.
