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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear solar yellow with a thin pale buff head. Crisp aroma is mainly fruity, mainly pear, with a bit of malt. Crisp, refreshing flavor is more malty than fruity and has an underpinning of somewhat bitter hops. Texture has average viscosity and fizz, though the tingle does persist. This will definitely take the edge off a hot day!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Harpoon Summer Beer has a thick, white head, a clear (but with noticeable powdery specs suspended throughout, picked up under strong light), bubbly appearance, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of somewhat pungent, sourdough bread and a shadow of citrus. Taste is of sourdough bread, fairly strong bitterness, and a touch of citrus. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and Harpoon Summer Beer finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and drinkable. A bit of alcohol is picked up, oddly. RJT

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not my favorite. Overdone IMO, and almost tastes artificially, lemony. Also, heavier than I like for a summer brew

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear gold. Sweet corn smell. Slightly tart taste on a standard kolsch backbone. Low level kolsch style in my opinion.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Not a good example of this style. Golden in color. Medium head. Aroma and taste is like a mass produced lager.

Bottle from Wegmans. Pours clear yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has light grain, slight tartness. The taste is sweet corn, meh.

Tap. Light golden yellow pour with a white head. Wheat, citrus. Spicy carbonation throughout. Light body. Decent but not the best effort
