3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at North Park Brewery. Pours a yellow-orange with a one finger white head with some lacing. Aroma is of bready malts, biscuit malt, grassy hops, spicy noble hops, and some pine. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a dry, slightly bitter, medium, refreshing finish. Overall, a very nice Kolsch that is very drinkable and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours light gold with a slight white head. Aroma is light fruit over a bit of citrus. Flavor is less bready than expected. It’s not very. It’s also fruitier than expected, and the hop level is also higher than expected. Finishes rather dry and bitter. So much more going on here than in most Kolnisch versions.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at ISO:Beers in San Jose. It pours a nice golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is fresh with straw, lemongrass, bread and hints of noble hop. The flavor has more floral/spicy noble hops with a little lemony citrus, fresh bread and a little bit of honeyed multigrain malt. Really pleasant and refreshing. Wish I could get this more often.
