2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly pale looking for a pilsener. A fairly bland aroma, smells kind of watery. Flavour is also very mild, slightly dry and bitter but lacking in depth. It does feel great on the pallet, extremely clean and easy to drink.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle now and, from memory, draught paper cup at Harry’s Water Taxi Beach. Non-distinctive hay/grassy aroma, with a very light malt flavor with crisp notes of green apple. Very easy drinking, even gulpable on a hot day. Nice summer beach beer, as long as it’s cold.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Speakeasy. Pour looked like rusty water with no head. Aroma was seriously lacking--some toasted malt and grain. Blah. Taste is close to water too. Crisp and refreshing, but nothing great.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light bitterness to the aroma, with something underlying I can’t identify. It pours a clear golden amber, with a quickly fading head, and lively carbonation visible. Light crisp flavor with hints of apple and a faint hop taste. Almost no finish at all, and the carbonation seems a bit too high for my tastes. Overall, not a bad beer, but strictly middle of the road.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer was light crisp, and very refreshing. It had a bright clear golden color with little aroma. Flavor was light, somewhat crisp, with a bit of metallic-ness at the finish. Mouthfeel was very light, and I felt this beer could have benefited from additional carbonation. Not bad, but just a light refreshment; not a real serious beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a quickly dissapating head. Had a very malty aroma to it and finished sweet to my palate.
This is the first Kolsch I’ve tried and I didn’t come away too impressed with this beer.

minimal aroma, pours fizzy and yellow. Head quickly dissapears and no lacing. Crisp clean taste with just a hint of sweetness. Very dry finish with almost no aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Clear sparkling body with a pale yellow color. Aroma was hay, straw, caramel, grain and citrus. Light bodied with an average carbonation. Flavor was light bitter with some sweet grain. Light dry and bitter finish with a light undertone of sweetness. My first Kölsch, and the last style I was missing out of the now 71 different styles of beer registered here on RB.
