3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a golden color with a white head. Aroma was of grassy hops and pale malt. Flavor similar, a little sweet and missing that doughy cracker character I like from a good kolsch

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Brilliant gold-yellow color with decent clarity; filled with a minor chill haze & topped with a ghost-white blanket of foam. Lots of carbonation bubble steams jettisoning towards the top. Aroma of grains, musky hop leaves, apple skins, a touch of citrus, & some mildly sweet cereal notes. Slightly nebulous "spice" to it, too? Taking a sip, that spice seems to be peppercorn. Not sure if this beer has peppercorn in it (don’t think so) but it sure tastes like it. Gives a nice, spicy bite to the flavor. Sounds weird, but it works. Leafy hop notes, mildly bitter & slightly earthy with backing flavors of heavy cereal grains, pale malt sweetness, crisp apple skins, citrus zest, & a bit of bready yeast. That moderate spicy tone lingers in the aftertaste. Crisp body leaves a mostly dry finish. Quaffable as hell. Really enjoyed this one, pretty different & tasty Kolsch.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Barcade with Andrew and Brendan. Pours a clear golden body with frothy white head and light lacing. Aroma is sweet straw, fruity malts and light grain. Mouthfeel is clean, refreshing and crisp but sort of ends with a slightly unpleasant grainy finish. Ok beer, above average for a Kolsch.

On tap. Poured a near clear gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer and laced nicely. Aroma was full of sweet grains with some caramel and a nice underlying light fruit. Flavor had lots of sweet grains as well with a hint of nuttiness as well as an underlying caramel.
