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.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle: Sparkling clear pour with lots of spritzy carbonation and a receding ivory head. Light aroma is peach esthers and some straw. Body follows suit, with a broaded spectrum of esthery notes - peach and baked apple. Herbal hops and subtle caramel malts add some depth. This is a great example of a very delicate style.
