3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild bready aroma, pours a clear light amber, with a full white head. Mild floral and herbal hops come in the finish, with a slightly sweet malt flavor being predominant. Very light on the palate, and easy drinking. A very solid Kolsch.

12oz can picked up in VA. In a lot of ways this is a pretty solid offering. Soft and medium bodied, but has some bitter, floral, astringent hop action too. Still fresh after sitting in my refrigerator for months. A respectable offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall microfoam off-white head with some orange and copper tints - very nice. Aroma of fresh malt, light wheat, a touch of lemons and a tiny bit of sugars. Light-bodied; Sharp malt up front with not much behind aside from a touch of lemons and a bit of metal. Aftertaste is light and airy with some grassy notes and a tiny bit of sugars. Overall, a pretty one dimensional beer with some light malt flavours and a hint of sugars, but that’s about it - oh, and maybe a tinge of lemons. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-July-2012 for US$1.25 sampled at home in Washington on 20-August-2012.

Big Top Beverage Mart, Roslyn PA case: Purchased this to go to a music festival, so I drank a bunch of these out of the can. However, yesterday I finally poured one. Poured a light gold with a white head. Aroma is slightly fruity with pale malts. Taste is much the same. Everything about this beer is as it should be. Sessionable and refreshing. I could finish 12 of these in one sitting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz can from State Line, 8/6/12
Aroma: The nose is clean crystal malts, dough, bread, citrus hops, and some grass
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a thick, white head and some lace that dissipates quickly
Flavor: It tastes much the same, crystal and doughy malts with grass hops, it’s light sweet and bitter
Palate: The body is light, with a really nice crisp, clean feel to it, a nice drinkability, and a smooth, dry finish
This is a nice Kolsch overall, with its crisp, clean feel, and a good drinkability. This one is a clear example of a beer being what it is trying to be.
