3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fromagé, croustillant un brin ferreux et zesty. Rien de spectaculaire ni de très traditionnel mais l’astringence est modérée, c’est un gros plus.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear fold with a fizzy white head and decent lacing. Tastes like musky citrus hops, light spice, toasted malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky dry citrus hops, toasted malt, straw, and a bit of sweet dough.

On tap at the brewery. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of sweet grains, malts and hops. The taste had a little fruit with a light sweet grain backbone with a touch of fruity esters. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours medium golden with thin rim of a head. Aroma is sweet fruit and estery. Flavor begins with sweet bananas and dry hops and finishes with a dry hoppiness. Medium bodied. Seems a little off style for a kolsch.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at San Diego Brewing Company. Pours a murky dark gold color with a minimal white head that diminishes to nothing. Top stringy ring of lacing with nothing under it. Sweet fruit and spices in the nose, plus a bit of malt. Light-bodied with a fruity character and flavors of spice and earthy malts. The finish is sweet and fruity leaving a sweetness behind. Decent overall.
