3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Ledger’s. Pours amber orange with a fluffy 3-finger off-white head. Aromas of mild floral and citrus hops. Near medium body with feisty carbonation. Flavor is a bit bready, and there’s not a lot of bitter - but enough to cover the malt. Seems very mildly astringent. Finish seems to bring out noble hop spice, and the bitter keeps on picking up. More flavor than many of this style, and enough to render it drinkable more than once.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Iron Springs brewpub during SF Beer Week, what a week! It pours clear thin watery gold with thin almost white head. The aroma is pretty big with all floral hops backed up by sweet maltiness. The taste is pretty bitter with floral hops and a bit punchy with carbonation. It then runs into some sugary sweet malts and a sense of grainy maltiness. Overall this is too sweet too bright too carbonated and too floral for the style. There’s nothing offensive going on here but it turns out I just had copious amounts of this style in Cologne and this rendition is pretty far off the mark.

Bottle thanks to Joe. Pours a clear copper with a white head that dissipates to the edges and has visible carbonation. Aroma is quite crisp with some grassy hops and a nice combination of light grassy and flowery hops. Flavor is much more one note with bread and grain and only a bit of a light hop presence. A bit over carbonated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 3/19/2010. This Kolsch pours an orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is orange, caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Kolsch. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are floral. Nice carbonation. A touch malty for a Kolsch and seems to be missing that softer mouthfeel. Still a very drinkable lighter beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
