2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Very pale goden beer with a thick fine-laced white head. Arom aof pale malt, light bread and nice noble, lightly spicy/lightly grassy hops. Flavour starts out good, clean bready malts, moderate bitterness, some hop flavour and a fairly dry finish. Alas, there is a very distracting metallic note that ruins the overall balance.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Little aroma and the pour is a light golden. The flavor is mild with some slight carbonation to coat the tongue. Best as summer drink when one does not want something heavy.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of nothing to speak. Pours a pale golden, very indicative of style. No head of importance. Flavor is, again, indicative of style. Very crisp and refreshing, which is the "job" of a kolsch. Good warm weather quencher. Plenty of well-utilized carbonation mixes nicely with the latent light hoppy aftereffects. Goes down well, without being too watery. And the aromas do open up a bit while the beer warms. Contributes nicely to the rest of the presentation. What it lacks for simplicity’s sake, for the style it’s definitely not complex, but I appreciate well what it’s trying to pull off.

Bottle. Poured an effervescent pale yellow with a moderate off-white head. The body was slightly malty and finished with a crisp hoppiness that was not very assertive.Not much too it at all.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Issac Newton’s. Pous a clear golden with a decent sized white head. Aroma is pretty bland, sweet malts, citrus, and slight hops. Flavor is pretty bland also, slightly sweet, citrusy, and a slight hoppy bite. A boring and a forgetable beer.

from a 5L party keg, courtsey of my friend from Koln. golden with a small even head. weak aroma of bready malt. the flavor was also bready, but not overpowering like the other kolsch I had. finished crisp with some hops. on a warm day this could be refreshing, but there is nothing too interesting about it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 Very light yellow color with a smallish head. Aroma is bready in an almost sour way but not at all unpleasant. Taste is really light to an almost watery fault. Some corn flavor is evident but again, not unpleasant. Really not bad and very light makes it really easy drinking.
