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?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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, almost, With the toffee and caramel malt flavors coming together this beer is like a carnival in a can. One of the beers I’ve tasted recently that is so off-putting on the label which seems to suit a rauchbier or that brewery on dragon’s den which tried to pitch a bacon infused beer. Some vanilla and soy on the nose also. Very sessionable. The only example of a beer that seems to fit the film category of "its so bad, it’s good." Great session ale, but I’m not quite sure its a kolsch.

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.

went camping and my brother in law throws a brown paper bag at me filled with pint sized beers and says, "Nate went to Canada and brought these back for your rateBeer ticks." I paraphrased a little but you get the idea. It was skunky.

On tap @ Crooked Star. Clear medium gold, two-finger white crown. I’m not sensitive to diacetyl, but wow this is a massive mouthful of buttered popcorn.Nothing that suggest kolsch whatsoever, just a grainy butter bomb. Didn’t finish it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from the magnificent man that is HogTownHarry. Thanks Harry. Can drunk at home. Clear gold, very thin sparse white head. Not a great aroma, some syrupy lager malt. It has some pale lager malt, it has minimal hop. It’s not a very good beer, but then Harry told me that. It’s not a very good beer, some syrupyness. Even with my goodwill towards the donor, this isn’t a good beer. Some sting on the finish.
