3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 8/19/2012. Pours a lightly cloudy golden straw color with a nice 1-2 finger fluffy white head with nice retention, that reduces to a good cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of pear, bread, lemon, cracker, herbal, grass, floral, light pepper, and earthy spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance, but they are quite muted. Taste of lemon zest, pear, bread, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and earthy spiciness. Light spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, lemon, bread, herbal, grass, and pepper on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of flavors, with a good malt/hop balance; a touch watered down; zero cloying flavors after the finish as expected. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice kolsch. Nice flavor balance and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Pretty average at best. If you work up a sweat this will certainly do the trick.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at West Deptford Canals.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a creamy white head that has great retention.
Aroma: Interesting aroma of citrus and sweet bubblegum.
Taste: Bubblegum is on the intro and throughout, a touch of floral hops, and a splash of citrus.
Palate: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.
Overall: This smells better than it tastes. Not a bad beer, but nothing I would buy.

Draught. Pours a clear and dark golden color with a smallish white head. Nose and taste are both nothing remarkable and very reminiscent of a standard lager. A little bit of skunk in there, but slightly crisp. OK, but not worth it.

A fairly nice American interpretation of a German Kolsch. Easyily drinkable, crisp, clean and one of the better offerings from Harpoon.
