Pours gold with a slight haze and a small white top. Aroma is soft cereal malt. Taste is slightly sweet malt and a touch of hop. For a Kolsch, I’m looking for more floral and a little crisper on the mouthfeel.

Kolsch? This tasted like a run of the mill boring ale. Pale malts, next to no hops. Barely anything going on, almost put me to sleep.

Canned. Half-hazy body, small white head. The aroma is malty, with fresh hops. The taste is fresh and surprisingly hoppy.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from LCBO. Slightly cloudy orange with very little head. Chunks in the second pour. The nose is doughy, floral hops, marinated pumpkin, hint of caramel. Tastes sweet with slightly unbalanced bitterness. A bit of a nasty finish. Soft and full in the mouth. Buttery. Pretty bad.

Can from Tony. Clear golden, aroma of well...not much. Light malt, easy drinking, could be any generic style, didnt even recognize it was a kolsch. Ok?

It says ale, but it has refreshing taste and clear appearance of lager. Is it caused by the low-temperature fermentation?
Big white head disappears quickly. Floral.hop on the tongue, and it remains in the mouth. Caramel, metal, a bit sweet. Not bad, but not the best. maybe not the second time.
Ate with cheese on seaweed, takana, and kimchi. So good.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 Can from the LCBO. Deep brown-tinted straw body with a fizzy head which dissipated quickly. The predominance of the diacatyl/buttered popcorn on the nose is so stupidly huge it almost works. With the toffee and caramel malt flavors coming together this beer is like a carnival in a can. Some vanilla on the nose also. Very sessionable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tall can. Clear gold, big white head. Nose is very crackery with floral. Flavour is slight sweetness with crisp cracker again, yeah finish... is crackery again, quite sweet after the first few sips. Buttery. Absolutely does not bear any resemblance to any kolsch I’ve had, yeah diacetyl problems.
