2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured. clear blond color like any commercial lager. Aroma was malty and effervescent. Tasted just like a regular lager. This beer serves it's purpose as a summer beer. For the price I'd go with the commercial brands instead.

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.

Pours straw yellow with white sudsy head. Smells of cracker and mild citrus notes. Refreshing summer ale, but pretty basic. Grass, biscuit, and a hint of citrus and coconut taste.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing that coats the glass quite intensively. Nose is of grains, slight "corn" (I seem to be the only one picking this up so uh... maybe I meant straw/hay?) and grassy hops. Taste is of grains and slightly fruity, moderately bitter. Fairly dry. Body is low and carbonation high to the point of being aggressive. Overall an OK ice cold summer drink but not much more. It needs a bit more body and a toned down carbonation for it to be considered good in my book.
