2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draught at the brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a light golden blonde brew with a thin and fast dissolving white head that has some spotty lacing and white ring. Aroma of golden grain malt, some grassy hops, green vegetable character and a touch of honey. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, grassy and light citrus hops, some farm hay and a touch of honey. Finish has a sharp bitterness then a clean cut aftertaste. Not quite the Colonge Kölsch I am used to but still a simple light session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Probably the most interesting beer I have had in this style. The body was a very light yellow with a thin white head. The aroma whad grass and some apples. The taste was sharp with carrots and some grass. There was also some potatoes and tobacco. It was wel balanced.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold with a nice white head. A nice honey taste with a nice malt / hop balance. A brewpub staple kind of beer. Not all that interesting but drinkable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear pale gold color with a thin white head. The aroma was one dimensional, consisting of distinct, but subdued apple. Not really what you’d expect when smelling a kolsch. Light bodied and slightly sweet. Distinct apple came out again in the flavor and was accompanied by hay and some white paper (at the end). Strange fruity beer without even the slightest hint of hops. This one didn’t have much going for it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the brewpub. Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of corn, grassy hops and light sweet malt. Taste of corn, grassy hops with a mild hop finish. Taste is too vegetal. My least favorite beer on the sampler.

Sample @ Brewery. Not much of a aroma some metalic keg of sorts. Gold body to it. Bitterness was pretty much all I got for flavor.

Amber/Honey Coloring. Sweet with Citrus. Even Though the Season is Ending, Still Found it very Quenching.
