2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Orangey-amber colour. Decent nose has caramel, diacetyl. Lightly fruity palate, a little overwhelming on the diacetyl. Not so summery in that respect. And I’ve never had a butterbomb kolsch before.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours aclear, honey-gold. Very light, white head. Some caramel malt on the nose, along with some fruitiness. Flavor is reasonably sweet, some nice caramel notes, some bready sweetness. Finishes with some pleasant bittness, lightly earthy. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A pretty good beer; a bit more complex than your average summer ale.

(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, bread. Taste is medium sweet, bread, caramel, light pepper, lemon. Some earthy and light grassy in the finish. Light-medium body, light stickiness, easy drinking. Seems to have more the characteristics of an alt than a kolsch.

Poured a medium, clear golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Aroma of oranges, grass and some malts. Tastes of the same and a little nutty. Medium sweetness to it with a light hop presence. Crisp finish. Thinner body for my tastes.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in Portland, ME. Pours a clear, light orange with a thin white head that has little retention and no lacing. Aroma of doughy malts, light citrus, slight Saaz hops, light caramel. Taste is bready and sort of buttery with a slight citrus tang. Clean and crisp. Neutral aftertaste. Unoffensive. Good session beer. Tastes like a pretty damn good lager rather than a blond ale. Medium bodied (a surprise for a summer ale).
