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.

Pale golden color ; big , white head. Aroma of malt , hay , bread and fruits . Clean , malty , grainy taste with light bitterness. Crisp , thirst-quenching beer. Good example of the style. It looks like many people expect more , but not every beer has to have tons of hops or high ABV.

Nice to see a summer without a lot of silly fruit experiments going on. This classic Kölsch has all the refreshing lager aspects with an authentic German bite to it. Great celebratory hot weather victory beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is mild basement. Appearance is pale yellow with almost non-existent head with minimal lacing and fair sparkle. Taste is lightly bitter. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation and light bitter finish. Overall, not much to this. Admittedly, this isn’t a favorite style of mine, but I don’t think it’s terribly good within the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Notes of pear on the aroma. Light gold appearance with an average white head. Flavor has notes of crackers with a slight sweetness and medium fruity esters. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, the beer is flabby. It seems like the water profile is off for the style. Not a fan.

This is one of the worst beers I have ever drank. Smells like soapy water and the taste doesn't get much better. I have not one good thing to say. Total drain poor
