Bottle from Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light, light, light hay. Taste is light hay and yeasty water. Maybe some citrus? Like most things I’ve had from GB, forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tapped out gold. 4ºSRM.
Nose has the aroma of sour plums. Aroma of Chinese preserved plums or the local preserved mango slices. There is a very slight phenolic tang to the nose.
Mouthfeel is watery. Light carbonation. Palate is full bodied pale malt and wheat malt with flavors of water biscuit, Wonderbread. Hops are bitter and light on the palate.
Finish is clean without being beery. A very nice light Pils-like brew. Clean hop finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is sweet pilsener malt with a light apple aroma, hint of corn. Appearance is golden clear with small off white head. Taste is crisp pilsener malt with a bit of tangy hop flavor. Light apple flavor with a lingering tartness as well as a minerally hop bitterness. Palate is light medium, a crisp and refreshing beer. Overall a nice Kolsch, a excellent backyard beer on a warm day. Malt could be bigger, but still one of the better American made versions IMO.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Rite-Aid: Poured a sparkling golden liquid topped with a tiny formation of foam across the top. Aroma is mild with a whiff of grass or dried out hay but also has some notes of spice or banana like esters. The flavor is bland but does have a solid balance between hop and malt that makes for a worthy Kolsch style beer. Would have preferred buying a twelve pack over a mixed variety pack especially during sommer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well derp, this beer was there at a BBQ. It’s yellow with a fizzy white head. Bready malt aroma with grassy hops and some diacetyl. The flavor is average, pilsner malt with a medium floral/grassy hop finish. Light on the palate with high carbonation. OK but derp.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
This brew isn’t as skunky as expected, but quite disappointing for a remake of the standard european summer brew. A solid pour with a think white head.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap, Seattle. Pours a crystal clear dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is sweet and buttery with some honey like malt. The flavor is really heavy on the diacetyl with not much else making an impact. Some weak watery caramel on the finish. Light to medium bodied, a little sticky and clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty darn bad, all diacetyl and not much else. Pretty awful for me.
