2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. Clear golden with a thin covering of tiny bubbles. Faint aroma of caramel, corn and dry grass. Taste is sweet creamed corn, lightly tart apple (with the pith), dry grass and a touch of metal. Seems that possibly a hint of stale rye shows up about halfway through the glass, but then again I think I was just wishing it would. Light-medium body has a sweetness that is almost balanced by the light bitter and metallic hop combination, and has medium-high carbonation. Danger Will Robinson!

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma was slight wheat and/or rye. A mild mild mild hop scent came through. Tastes sweet, yeasty. Barely a head and what head formed is completely gone. Low carbonation which gives this beer a flat feel. Easy to drink but bland.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a very thick, if not too persistent, ivory head - typical of a kolsch. Aroma is strong, yeasty and malty, with just a whiff of - wet dog? Flavor is crisp and malty with a yeasty underpinning and a hint of apple. Refreshing, if a bit wan. Texture is thin, though fizz does persist a bit, leaving a crisp and clean finish. More for sipping on a hot day, or as an accompaniment to lunch, then for serious drinking.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly reddish gold, if i remember correctly, and I don’t really remember if i do remember correctly. smell was a bit metallic and a bit of rye malt. nothing too exciting, but not terrible. Drinkable, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a clear yellow colored body, decent amount of carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace, quickly dieing one finger white foamy head, moderate amount of lightly clingy foamy lacing.
The smell was malty, some light rye.
The taste was sweet through the previously mentioned flavors, dry sweet aftertaste, dry finish.
The palate was light; sessionable; though adequately carbonated for the style, its still slightly felt.
Overall, this is decent for the style, and decent to me. Though there are tastier Kolsches out there, this isn’t bad for a cheaper option that is pretty light, I’d probably grab another when in a pinch.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden beer with a thin, white head. Faint aromas of grass and skunk funk. Tastes of some wheat, weak malted barley, dry rye, and dirty water. Bittersweet, crisp finish. Refreshing and in-offensive. A decent beer for a hot day.

Really not much of a Kolsch, let alone a beer. Not sure if the rye is supposed to add something constructive here. Pours blonde, some crisp lager-like barley. Not much else. Bottle for free at work so can’t really complain - I got what I paid for.

Bottle.straw yellow, white head. Smell of corn and some hops. Taste is so so. Not great. Friend doesn’t drink heavy beers, so i got this for him. He liked it, so that counts.
