3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a sudsy, small white head. The aroma is pale malt, sweet with a mild vinous character, along with a bit of butterscotch. Flavor is fairly sweet, but there’s a nice grassy noble hop bite in the finish. Lighter bodied with a fairly modest carbonation level.

Hazy unfiltered yellow, huge long lasting head, lots of lacing. Sour wheat, citrusy. Palate slightly watery, light malt, above average carbonation. Decent. Local brewer, so will have to pay a visit, next time out on town.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear yellow-gold with a big frothy white head. Aroma is dominated by hops: floral and grassy notes stand out the most. Taste is mildly sweet transitioning to sour and a sweet-bitter finish at the end. Mouthfeel is medium with lively carbonation. Lots of lacing on the glass. Overall really refreshing and enjoyable. Again, I am not well versed in lagers and the styles within the lager classification, so I don’t have much context for rating or comparing this to other beers of its style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle pours a slightly hazy light yellow color with small white head and good lacing. Aroma is full of wheat bread, yeast, grass, and a bit of fruity hops. Taste is neither sweet nor sour, with a short, slightly dry finish. Body is light with a crisp mouthfeel and not too much carbonation. Very refreshing and easily drinkable. I’ve never enjoyed a Kolsch as much as this one. If I didn’t know it was from Chicago, I would have guessed it was from Köln
