Not bad, but Iím really not that into this beer. Blonde color and a small white head. Nothing really stood out in this beer. Itís very well balanced, but none of the flavors are particularly impressive or exciting. The labels are pretty sweet, though.

This deep golden amber beer has a sweet yet bitter hop aroma. the flavor is slightly sweet and malty with underlying hoppiness.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2003 Ringwooded to death. The yeast dominates this brew. Do not make a kolsch with ringwood yeast.

Pretty good, better than another Kolsch-ish beer I had earlier today. Nice body, subtle malting, even more subtle German style hopping, quite refreshing. Has some of that oiliness in the body that some bohemian pilsners seem to have.

Decent kolsch, but lots of things that were jsut bland. Low head, pale yellow color- which is good, but the flavor is lacking and there isnt enogh complex spicy tones which are good in a kolsch. Average summer brew.

A quite refreshing beer. Many different subtle undertones, without being an overt fruit flavored beer. Highly reccomended!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2003 Release 2003: The pours a cloudless burnished copper color, the head pythonic in size, creamy in consistency, the color a winsome light tan and as it evanesces, the lace formed a satiny sheet to meld with the glass. Sweet malt dominates the fresh, crisp and quite sniffable nose, start is malt sweet, the top middling in its feel to the palate. Finish has a tolerable acidity, the hops perky in their spiciness, dry lingering aftertaste, another great summer session beer.
