3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy, yeasty, body. Not unappealing nose. Not too sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Good beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with a low head. Aroma of bread and biscuits - a bit of toffee too. The flavour is very refreshing, sweet with a dry final. A nice interpretation of a kölsch.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Poured thin and pale gold. Virtually no head or lacing. The aroma was metallic and citrus, some grainy, grassy notes as well. Flavor was mostly citrusy and metallic. Super thin in body, unpleasant finish. Not very good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Hollingshead: Color is a straw blonde with a tiny foaming of head. Aroma is simple and has a malty pale lager scent and not much else. The flavor was boring and bland with grain and grassy hop but not the kind of kolsch I prefer to drink.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In the bottle from HyVee CB. I second the previous rating in that this beer must certainly not be retired, but rather made by a different contract brewer, or for another microbrewery configuration now residing in EL Lay. This pours a dark gold with a white head. Again, since I do not care for the kolsch style, I rather liked this beer because it did not really taste like a kolsch at all. No harsh biting palate at the end, just a mildly malty golden ale taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not sure that this is retired. Marked as Great Beer Company (of Los Angeles, CA) Hollywood Blonde Kolsch. Pours with a small, fizzy, white head covering a clear gold body. Aroma is a bit grassy with some sweet fruits. Taste is sweet with corn, a pretty decent kolsch. Some DMS feeling. Goes down quite well.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild malty aroma backed by some fruit notes. Light golden color with decent white head. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Heavier flavor than many Kolsches (sic). Very tasty with malt, fruit, spicey hop. The finish is dry and mildly spiced. Tastes pretty good.
